Never 2 Nauti Fishing Charters

Never 2 Nauti Fishing Charters is all about putting people on fish and providing them with an experience they’ll remember. Captain Gerald Hernandez specializes in inshore, flats, back bay, and nearshore fishing. He loves having novices onboard, as he has the chance to teach them the basics and be the person who helped them catch their first fish.

You’ll be fishing from a 23’ Skeeter bay boat, newly built in 2019. The ideal number of guests is 4 but the boat can accommodate more if necessary. She’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, that makes it easy to glide swiftly to any destination. The boat also has all necessary safety and navigational equipment. Capt. Gerald also provides kids life vests but you’ll need to bring one if the child is under 10 years old.

You can target pretty much everything that swims inshore and nearshore: Groupers, Snapper, Redfish, Snook, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and many more. You can keep anything within regulations and the captain will clean and fillet the catch for you after the trip.

Capt. Gerald uses all spinning reels, so the trips are suitable for all skill levels. He also has both right-hand and left-hand designs. The use of live bait depends on the availability so it can be prepared in advance or caught during the trip.

As he trailers his boat, it’s possible to start the trip from some other location – simply get in touch with the captain and talk through the details.

Never 2 Nauti Fishing Charters runs trips year round. All who are interested in having a great time – hop aboard!

"I love the water and running a boat on the water. I love showing people how to fish. And for most I love fishing." Captain Gerald was born and raised in the area and he’s been fishing the local waters for 30 years. In 2019 he finally decided to go pro and turn his passion into a career, so he got his captain’s licenses. He specializes in inshore, flats, back bay, and nearshore fishing. He loves teaching kids how to fish and having them experience the great outdoors.
