Too Hot 2 Handle Charters

Too Hot 2 Handle Charters will get you on the hottest bite in Bay County,  Florida. This charter company promises great fun, impressive catch, and wonderful fishing experience you’ll cherish!

You will head out to your angling escapades on a 32’ Scarab Center Console that offers 360 degrees of fishing around her. She is equipped with the latest, state of the art electronics to put you right on the fish, with twin Mercury Verrado 275 HP motors that will get you there fast.

Whatever fishing technique you prefer, Too Hot 2 Handle Charters will be able to accommodate you. With a plethora of trips, suited both for beginners and passionate fishermen, your only task is to choose which one to book.

For the longer trips, you will go up to 9 miles offshore. What this means for your fishing experience is that you get an even better chance to snag a really impressive catch and boast about it to your angler friends. Shorter trips are best suited for angling novices, to give them a taste of what it all looks like.

When you do head out, depending on the time of the trip and what bites best, you can catch Snappers, Groupers, Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish,  Wahoo, and the list goes on and on. Even some Sharks are in the cards if you’re a bit lucky and spot those bad boys.

The boat is fully stocked with top-rate fishing equipment, so that’s one less thing to worry about when preparing for your trip. The charter has several different brands of rods and reels, depending on which fish you’re targeting, but Penn and Shimano are most common. Your live bait is prepared in advance, and the first mate will help you set everything up and cast your lines. Gratuity is appreciated for his dedication and assistance.

Bring your family, friends, and children, they’ll all have the best time with Too Hot 2 Handle Charters and create memories of a lifetime!
