Whether you’re an experienced angler or a complete beginner, it’s time to book a trip with Get Schooled Fishing Charters today! Captain Mitch grew up fishing with his dad and brother and has spent over 15 years fishing these waters. Inshore, nearshore, or offshore, he knows the top fishing spots to take you to for the most productive day out!

The day will be spent on his 27’ Ameracat. These boats are known for their stability out on the water, with twin hulls keeping you balanced anywhere from shallow inshore waters to the deep sea. There’s plenty of space for 6 anglers. On board, there’s a cooler with ice for you to put your food and drink into.

Fishing offshore for big game isn’t just for experienced anglers! Even beginners will have fun trolling for the likes of Bluefin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. If there is time, you can also bottom fish for Grouper and Snapper. Closer to shore, expect to target Tarpon, Redfish, Flounder, and plenty more!

Kids over 5 are welcome on board. There are life vests available for them, just let the captain know the age of the kids before the trip so he can prepare the vests. The stable boat makes these trips good for kids, beginners, and the elderly.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Shimano and St. Croix. Live bait is included, too, and will either be caught before the trip (usually on inshore trips) or during (mostly offshore trips). The fishing license for the whole group is provided.

You should bring along food and drink for the day. Beer is permitted, but should be in cans only. No glass on board! It’s best to wear light layers of clothing and deck shoes. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and a hat. Take your seasickness medicine the night before if needed.

Book a trip with Get Schooled Fishing Charters today for an unforgettable time out on the water. No matter which trip you choose, you’ll have an awesome adventure!
