Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina

Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina offers light tackle and live bait deep sea fishing adventures. Explore the finest fishing spots and the hottest bite on the Gulf Coast. Enjoy the rod-bending action with your family and friends. Fish with the locals like the locals!

Capt. Steve and his deckhand can turn even the coldest day into a hot fishing trip. They will put their talent to work for you and guide you through the basics before you make the first cast. The crew are also great with kids - there is nothing better than putting a smile on a child’s face!

Your adventure will begin a couple of minutes after you leave the dock. You will be trolling or fishing for live bait. Catching bait is a lot of fun for younger anglers! When you are done, the captain and the crew will take you to their own secret honey holes that they build themselves.

Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina has tailored a variety of packages to meet your specific needs. Troll for Kingfish and Tuna, target Amberjack, Red Snapper, Triggerfish, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Bonito. Try bottom fishing as soon as you’re done with trolling. Or just combine both!

Test yourself in deep dropping in more than 300’ of water. Bottom fish in federal waters, fish the reefs and wrecks or just spend a whole day catching the limits of Red Snapper when the season allows.

All of that magic happens aboard the ‘Lucky Lina,’ a beautiful 33’ Bertram sport fisher. She is a comfortable boat with two 280 HP Caterpillar engines and plenty of space for up to six anglers. The Lucky Lina is outfitted with latest technologies, tools, and accessories.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, lures, fish bags, and the licenses. The crew will clean the catch that you decide to bring home with you. You only need to bring your own food and drinks.

Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina aims to please. You lose your bait or catch fish or… the captain moves the boat. It’s that simple!
