Family Jewell Fishing Charters

Are you up for awesome offshore fishing? If the answer is yes, then look no further! Family Jewell Fishing Charters is the perfect match for you. Captain Ryan Palmer is a local who has been fishing his whole life, so you are sure to have a productive awesome day with him.

Whichever trophy fish you want to target, Capt. Ryan has a trip for you. From Snapper to Swordfish, and everything in between, you are sure to find a trip here that will target your dream catch.

You will spend the day on board a 25’ center console Contender. This recently restored vessel can fit 4 anglers at once without bumping elbows. For the Swordfish trip, there’s a limit of 3 anglers, as you’ll need the extra space to reel in these deep sea predators.

You will use top quality gear on these trips, all provided by the captain. Penn, Shimano, Daiwa, and LP for the deep drop trips. With gear like this, you have the best chance in reeling in your catch. Your gear, and Capt. Ryan, won’t let you down.

Children over 4 are welcome on board. Let the captain know in advance about their age and stature and he will make sure to have the correct-sized life vests on board. 

The first batch of bait is provided for. If you need more, there will be a small additional surcharge for another batch.

For any fish that you don’t want to eat, or cannot release, the crew are happy to take it off of your hands for you. After the trip, the crew will fillet your catch, sure to last you many meals! You only need to make the hard choice of how to cook it once you’re home.

Join Family Jewell Fishing Charters today for an unforgettable trip chasing some awesome fish!

    Targeting Swordfish off the coast is very exciting and very rewarding. You will use an electric reel to get the baits in place. You can catch a fish from 40lbs to over 400lbs. There's also by-catch of Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and many more. This trip is limited to only 3 anglers. Please bring along any snacks you fancy on the trip.

    Fishing in 700'-1100' of water with the electric reel to target creatures from the deep. There's also by-catch involved of Mahi-Mahi & Tuna. If conditions allow, you can also hand crank from that depth, giving you the possibility of setting a State or World record. Most of the fish caught will have a high mortality rate so catch and release is unlikely. Luckily, these fish are some of the best eating, since they come from very cold water. Please bring snacks along with you. All gear is provided for.
