Now is a great time to fish with Live Salty Charters. Available year round, you’ll have an awesome fishing adventure with Captain Raul Delgado. He has been fishing his whole life and was delighted to be able to open a charter company with his brother-in-law after he retired from the public services earlier this year.

Hop on board his 25’ Blue Water center console. This beautifully maintained boat has twin 200 HP Suzuki engines, with a cruising speed of 40 MPH. She has great electronics on board, including Sirius XM radio and Garmin navigation equipment. This will all combine to keep you on the fish all day long.

Capt. Raul specializes in using live bait and light tackle for Sailfish, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and many more. You will catch these great species on his trips. Mahi Mahi is available all year round but is most abundant from April to July. They are the most sought-after fish in these waters, are fun to catch, and delicious to eat!

Everyone is welcome on board, no matter your skill level or age. However, on the offshore trips, children should be over 10 years old. Before the trip, it’s best to have a chat with the captain about how much experience everyone in the group has. From this information, Capt. Raul will decide whether to use a first mate on your trip to help you.

Live bait is included in the price and is caught before the trip. If you would like to help catch the live bait, please talk to the captain prior to the trip, and he will try to arrange this.

You’ll use top of the line rods and reels that won’t let you down when you’re reeling in your trophy catch. All you need to bring on the day are your own refreshments and sunscreen.
