Tight Lines Fishing Charter

If you’re looking for a day of full excitement and good times then Tight Lines Fishing Charter is the best option for you! Specializing in offshore adventures targeting Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and more, these guys work hard on every trip to send you packing with a headful of great memories and a trunkful of delicious fish.

You will be fishing aboard the 22’ Sportsman center console built in 2015 and powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. The boat can carry up to 4 guests in comfort and is loaded with everything you need to bring in a real record-breaker.

Outriggers throw your spread out wide and get multiple lines in the water. Downriggers bring even the deepest reefs within reach. You’ll have a livewell for your bait and a wide range of lures if that’s more your style. Throw in quality Penn rods and Avet reels and you’re ready for action.

There sure will be plenty of action on these trips. Shorter charters will have you fishing either nearshore or offshore for anything from Snapper and Grouper to Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Stay out a little longer, and you could be heading 60 miles out to battle monster Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and more. Visit in the summer, and you can also try a seasonal Red Snapper charter.

All Tight Lines Fishing Charters trips come with everything you’ll need for the fishing itself, including licenses for everyone onboard. Just bring your food, drinks, sunscreen, and shades. Pack a camera to record your catches and a cooler to store them at the end of the day. Captain Scott Darmer will make sure you fill it.

Becoming a charter captain has always been a life long dream of mine. After graduating high school I joined the US Army and served four combat deployments. After my military career, I began working in aviation in Corpus Christi, TX. This particular area is very prominent for sport fishing. I would look forward to getting off work just to hit the water and catch some awesome fish! From that moment on, I set goals for myself, started a family, and here I am today a fishing captain! Now I’m able to fulfill my lifelong dream of charter fishing!
