Broke Tip Charter is a family-owned and operated company that specializes in Bay and Gulf fishing trips. It is run by Captain Kent Peckham, a patient guide with a lot of experience on the water.

Capt. Kent will get the boat ready the day before the trip. He will pick up you and your party and take you to the dock. Capt. Kent will guide you through the basics and will give you a safety briefing before you make your first cast. And then it’s fish on! At the end of the trip, Capt. Kent will clean your catch and bag it up for you.

Your boat for the day will be a 26’ Pursuit. She is a comfortable vessel with enough room for up to 6 anglers to fish, relax, and enjoy their day. The boat comes powered by twin 150 HP Evinrude engines and is fully outfitted with everything you need for a successful fishing trip.

With Broke Tip Charter, you will be able to fish up to 24 miles offshore for Tuna or stay closer to shore and get your hands on anything from Mahi Mahi and Red Snapper to Spanish and King Mackerel, Barracuda, Amberjack, Wahoo, Grouper, Redfish, and Trout.

Trips include dead bait or live bait (depending on availability), tackle, ice, licenses, and a complimentary fish cleaning and bagging service. You are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks with you.

Please note, departure times are flexible and will be discussed with the captain prior to the trip. If you need a certain departure time this can also be arranged.
