Treat yourself with an unforgettable day on the water with Billable Hours Charters. Captain Mason Mattlin is a true Floridian. That doesn’t just mean he was born and raised in this area – he’s also been fishing these waters for his whole life! He accomplished his dream to own and operate a charter fishing business, and fun-filled days on the water are something he delivers to his guests daily.

Bring your friends or family aboard your captain’s 34’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat. She is powered by twin 300 HP engines that can reach a maximum speed of 50 miles per hour. It will take you only a few minutes to reach offshore fishing spots, so even a half day trip can take you for an exciting trophy hunt. The trip price will stay the same, even if you go further offshore.

Your main targets will be Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish, and Grouper, and if you are more persistent you can expect Sailfish, Tuna, or Marlin. Capt. Mason will provide your Penn and Shimano fishing gear and artificial bait, while live bait is a small additional cost.

Your departure point is at Boynton Beach marina, next to Mangrove park, where the boat is docked. However, the captain can pick you up with the boat if you’re 15 minutes from the marina. Capt. Mason and his first mate will clean and fillet your catch after the trip. There is no extra charge for this, but you’re always welcome to leave a tip if you’re happy with their service.

Billable Hours Charters continually strives to keep their guests happy and safe on the water, with plenty of fish in the boat! Contact them and discover your new passion – fishing.
