Contrail Fishing Charters

If you’re on a mission for world-class offshore fishing, then Jupiter, FL is the perfect destination! Join Captain Andrew Carlson aboard Contrail Fishing Charters and get ready to experience an incredible angling adventure, Floridia-style. 

Capt. Andrew is a native Floridian who loves introducing guests to the bustling South Florida offshore fishing scene. This part of the state boasts some seriously diverse and bountiful fishing grounds, so each trip is truly unique. In addition to this, Capt. Andrew’s wealth of knowledge means that he’s a true expert when it comes to suggesting locations based on what’s biting. 

You’ll be heading to the world-famous Atlantic fishing grounds on the ‘Contrail’. She’s a 31ft Ameracat catamaran that’ll guide you to the hottest fishing spots via twin Evinrude engines. Onboard, you’ll find amenities such as a toilet, fishfinder, GPS, shade, seating, and deck space that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. She comes fully furnished with state-of-the-art safety gear, too, including life jackets for all ages. The Contrail was custom-built with one thing in mind – catching lots of fish!

As for the species you’ll be targeting? It’s an offshore bonanza! Get ready to go after Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, a variety of Snapper and Shark, and whatever else is biting in this diverse fishery. The Gulf-stream current that is home to these fish is only a short 5-mile boat ride from Jupiter Inlet, your starting point—so get ready to reel ‘em in!

You’ll be able to try a variety of angling techniques on your adventure. Your captain recommends drift-fishing, as it means you can combine various techniques at the same time. You’ll really maximize your reeling-in potential – perfect for experienced anglers and new beginners alike! 

Capt. Andrew will provide you with top-quality rods and reels, as well as bait to tempt your catch. Come aboard Contrail Fishing Charters and get ready to experience offshore Floridian fishing at its finest!
