Seacret Spot Guide Service

Dubois Park
Jupiter FL, United States

Seacret Spot Guide Service was founded in 1994 by the master captain and angler Cliff Budd. He will do his best to give you the experience to remember. He will guide you through the numerous saltwater opportunities Jupiter has to offer, delighting all anglers whether they’re into fly fishing, light tackle or going after the monsters.

Capt. Cliff caters to experienced anglers who are looking for a top of the range sportfishing trip. You will be provided with the best spin, fly or plug tackle. Bait and licenses are included. All you need to bring is sunscreen, polarized glasses, and food/drinks.

You can go inshore or offshore and fish in the day or the night. The main target species include Sailfish, Snook, Tarpon, Cobia, Shark, Snapper, Goliath Grouper. Kingfish, Permit, Mackerel, Tuna, Ladyfish, Jacks, African Pompano, Flounder, Tripletail, Mahi Mahi, and more, depending on the season. It is also possible to fish specifically for Largemouth Bass.

Seacret Sport Guide Service will take you out aboard a 26’ Seahawk walkaround boat. It comes powered by a 225 HP Honda engine. The boat can take up to 3 passengers, including the captain. A family of four is also possible, although with fewer people you will have more space.

Grandparent/ grandchildren trips are a specialty. Capt. Cliff is also versed in teaching boat handling, navigational skills, and fishing classes on land or on the water. The company will provide experienced anglers with a fun and informative trip.

**Live bait is included, when available.
The boat is not air conditioned.
