Gale Force Fishing - Family Fun

(5) In demand!

Fish with Gale Force Fishing in the beautiful Florida Keys with Captain Emily and Captain Amanda Gale with your kids, wives, girlfriends, and family! At Gale Force Fishing, they keep their charters hands-on and fun.

Captain Emily and Amanda are all about their clients having a good experience and fun on their boat. They’re also willing to teach their customers how to do everything if they don’t have a lot of experience.

Jump aboard their 32’ Intrepid center console powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines and get ready for some amazing fishing. The “Gale Force” comes with outriggers, a live bait tank, an ice-box, and top-notch marine electronics and safety equipment. It can accommodate up to 6 guests, out of which usually 4 can fish at the same time.

Gale Force Fishing specializes in reef and wreck fishing anywhere from 2 to 10 miles from the coast. They target reefs and patch reefs for species like Mangrove and Yellowtail Snapper, Barracuda, King, Cero, and Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia, among others.

The charter will cover the use of custom-made rods and Penn reels, most of it light tackle, as well as lures and live bait (usually caught before each trip, sometimes during). Emily and Amanda will take turns serving as the captain and the first mate, but both are always on board. They usually split the tip – it’s up to the clients to tip how much they want, but the standard is 15% to 20%. They will clean and fillet the catch after each trip.

The clients should bring any beverages besides water (which is provided), lunch, and sunscreen. You can either bring your own cooler or store the things you bring in the cooler on board.

Your captains will make sure you don’t lack anything for a memorable day on the water!

About the Captain

Growing up in South Florida, we quickly fell in love with the ocean. We've both been fishing since we were very young off the docks and piers throughout the Florida Keys and did our first deep sea fishing charter at 13 years old. After that charter, we were hooked! In college, we took our first jobs on a sportfishing boat in Key West catching Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and many other offshore species. What turned into a college summer job became a passion and a career path. After working on several boats throughout south Florida and the Keys, we found that there is a strong need for more charter boats and captains to create family-friendly environments. As female captains, we want to create an environment where kids, wives, and girlfriends can feel comfortable.
