You’ll usually head 8 to 24 miles out. Hit the reefs and bottom fish, work your way around the mangroves and other top fishing habitats, or head for the Blue Water Off Shore. Capt. Beamer may prepare some bait before you leave the dock, or you can immerse yourself in the full fishing experience and catch it on the way out. Try spinning or drift fishing to catch the bite of tasty Trout, Mackerel, Cobia, and Snappers, Grouper ... Go Off Shore and look for Mahi, and you may even catch the bite of a great Shark.
Whatever’s biting at the end of your line, you’re in for an incredible day’s fishing. At the end of your trip, the captain will clean, prepare, and bag your catch for you to take home. The taste of success will be sweet as you enjoy a well-earned meal later that night.
