Good Times Offshore Fishing

Good Times Offshore Fishing offers deep sea fishing trips from 6-12 hours in length that are a combination of trolling and bottom fishing. On the longer deep sea fishing trips, you could be fishing for Red Snapper, Vermillion, and Lane Snapper, as well as Triggerfish, Grouper, Amberjack, and more. Trolling can get you on Spanish and King Mackerel, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. It all depends on the season and the time you have onboard.

The “Good Times” is a 29’ Everglades Center Console with twin Suzuki 300 HP engines. She has a cruising speed of 30+ knots, which means you get to the fish quicker, and in some cases double your fishing time compared to other boats. The Good Times has ample room for you to fish, with over 25’ of rail space on either side of the boat. There is a full bathroom in the center console for customer convenience. There is also plenty of comfortable seating for you and your group to relax in style and a covered T-top to keep the summer sun at bay.

Everything you need for the day ahead is ready and waiting onboard. There’s no need for you to get a license as the boat is federally and state-permitted for 6 paying customers. All bait, tackle, rod, reels, and other fishing equipment are provided for you. Just bring a small cooler with whatever you would like to drink and eat. Don’t forget your camera to record the joy of catching great fish! Please add 20% cash tip to the mates.  Free cleaning with 20% tip.

This is a one-of-a-kind fishing experience where you, the captain, and the deckhand have more interaction with each other. Captain Dan has been running charters since 2005 and served in the Navy for many years before that. The ocean is his life and he loves to share it with anglers from any walk of life. Whether you’re a family of beginners or a group of old fishing buddies, this great charter can provide memories of a lifetime.
