It’s time to get on board and book a trip with The Program Sportfishing Charters today. Captain Christian is a highly skilled captain that has been fishing the southeast coast since a child.

Captain Christian and his crew will go above and beyond for you and your group. Capt. Christian has years of experience and has been a tournament fisherman for the past 14 years. As a local, he knows the best places to take you for the most incredible day out.

The day will be spent on a 28’ center console. There is some seating for the elderly and a cooler on board for the snacks you’ll bring along. There is a T-top for shade and plenty of rod holders, giving you the maximum chance of reeling in your trophy catch while staying comfortable.

The species you’ll be targeting vary depending on whether you have an inshore or offshore trip, but can include Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, sharks, and many more. There’s a fish out here with your name on it!

This boat is for 6 anglers. Children are welcome but must be over 5 years old. Parents should bring along life vests for all anglers under 10 years of age. Beginners are welcome and will love learning from Capt. Christian. Inshore trips are usually better for kids.

You’ll need to bring along snacks, sunscreen, and wear a hat and deck shoes. All of the fishing gear, licenses, and a case of water are included in the price of the trip. You’ll be using custom-made by X-Generation rods and Shimano reels. On the full day trip, all legal catch will be filleted for you by the captain.

Please inform the captain before the day of the trip if you wish to snorkel, spearfish, or fly fish. The captain has equipment for 4 to snorkel.

Christian has been a captain for the past 5 years, but he’s been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. He’s fished the entire southeast coast and participated in a lot of different tournaments along the East Coast. Not only has he placed high in many of these tournaments, but his boat is also currently the number 2 boat under 28 feet in the whole SE coast! He recently finished second place in the world in a Sailfish tournament fishing off a 62’ Viking. Fishing is his ultimate passion and addiction – he goes to sleep dreaming about fishing, then eats, drinks and breathes fishing. You'll have a great time fishing with him and his crew!
