Listen to the sound of the drag screaming, look up and see your rod completely bent, and feel your adrenaline pumping as the blood quickly rushes to your head. For the guys at Savage Pursuit Fishing Charters, this is just another day on the job. Captain Brian Godwin is a 100-Ton USCG licensed captain with experience as a Coast Guard, commercial fisherman, and charter operator. He and his crew are exactly the experts you’d want when heading into battle against some of the strongest offshore species.

You’ll head out on a 25’ Southern Cross center console, built for long, offshore expeditions. She’s outfitted with state-of-the-art navigational and fishfinding technology to bring you to some of the best fishing spots on the coast. Her deck is spacious, accommodating up to 4 guests per trip, and everyone can fish at the same time.

Capt. Brian is an expert at bottom fishing and knows where all the bottom species are feeding. You’ll be fishing above wrecks and reefs, targeting various Grouper and Snapper species, as well as Triggerfish and other delicious bottom-dwellers.

He goes anywhere from 5–18 miles offshore, depending on what you’re targeting. The further you go, the more likely you’ll catch pelagics such as Mahi Mahi and Kingfish. Other targets include migratory coastal species, such as Cobia. Your options are endless and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to target all of these plus more!

You’ll use top-quality Penn and Star tackle, as well as high-performance lures and live bait. For max capacity trips (6 guests), you’ll have a first mate on board to assist you with anything you need. Your fishing license is included, and you’ll also have your catch cleaned and filleted for free.

Capt. Brian keeps water and soda on board but feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks as well. Meet him at the Stan Blum Boat Ramp, come ready to fish, and the rest will be taken care of. Join Savage Pursuit Fishing Charters and get ready for the chase of a lifetime!
