Surf the seas in style with Ringmaster Charters. With the Gulf Stream gushing past Pompano Beach, you’ll have access to a range of delicious and big game fish, giving you a day to remember on the water. Captain John Caselli is a third-generation captain, having fished professionally since 14. He’s fished all over the US and Caribbean, but has settled in Hillsboro Inlet since age 20, and promises to share his knowledge and skills with each customer.
Prepare to be treated in luxury aboard the 53’ Hatteras convertible. Fitted with 3 air conditioners, ample seating inside and outside, and a fridge and ice box, you’re guaranteed the full treatment aboard. Catering can be arranged but feel free to bring your own food and use the kitchen at your leisure. Powered by twin 650 HP Diesel engines, you’ll speed off to the sweetest fishing spots, preparing to meet huge, powerful fish.
As you drift along, you’ll be trolling behind you, but you can also mix it up and bottom fish on nearer trips, or live bait fish as well on longer trips. Nearshore, expect to catch Amberjacks, Barracudas, and Kingfish while offshore the struggle will be greater against Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, and Tuna.
You’re in for a big struggle, whichever you hook, and the first mate will be by your side to give you any assistance you need. Your rewards will be great at the end of the day when the crew cleans and prepares your catch for you to take home and cook. Some fish, like Marlin and Sailfish, will have to be released, according to law.
Novices and experts alike will love a trip with Ringmaster Charters, so come aboard and see the sea in style!
