💥 THE BIGGEST FASTEST BOAT IN THE AREA💥🚨VOTED BEST OF FLORIDA 2022 and 2023🚨Offshore fishing has never been so exciting! Skirtchaser Charters has a brand new fishing machine fully rigged for all types of fishing, different weather conditions, as well as the tournaments. Captain Frank Hutchko has 20 years of experience fishing in New Jersey, Cape Hatteras, West Palm Beach, and finally, John’s Pass.💥

💥Your trip will take place on a 36’ Yellowfin boat. Even though it can take more people, Capt. Frank allows only up to 6 guests, so everybody can fish in comfort. This center console is powered by three 350 HP Suzuki engines that can reach the amazing speed of 72 mph and cruise’s comfortably at 45 mph . She is equipped with Garmin electronics, Carolina fish box and a cooler to keep your drinks cold at all times.💥

💥Once you’re on the boat, Capt. Frank will go through safety briefing and show you how to use EPIRB and the radio. He will let you choose the fishing techniques, but if you’re looking for his advice – go bottom fishing! Once you catch enough fish using this technique, you can always switch to trolling. Capt. Frank will prepare dead bait before the trip, and have live bait ready to go when needed,,no wasting time catching bait here.! .💥

💥You will mostly target Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. It all depends how far you want to go (which can be up to 150miles offshore) and how long you want to stay on the boat. There is no minimum age limit, but Capt. Frank prefers to take children who are at least 8 years old on longer trips.💥

💥Skirtchaser Charters strives to make your trip the one you’ll talk about for years to come. Take Capt. Frank’s word for it and book your next adventure today!💥

Captain Frank has been fishing his whole life. He used to go out on fishing trips with his dad, and the boat captains were pretty much his childhood heroes. That’s what inspired him to become a captain. He loves making his clients happy and letting them see things he’s been seeing his whole life. He had an older captain say to him once “It’s not the size of the fish, it’s the size of the experience that matters.”
