Come and spend a day on the water with Off The Clock Fishing Charters! Captain Travis Trotter has been fishing in the area his whole life and he’ll make sure you have an unforgettable day on the water. Bring your family along and don’t hesitate to start your adventure even if some of you never held a rod in their hands before! Capt. Travis is a very patient teacher as well and, with him by your side, you’re surely going to reel in your first fish.

A group of 4 guests can be accommodated on the captain’s 26’ Mako. The boat has a live bait tank, a portable toilet, a cooler, and multimedia system. Listen to your favorite music while waiting for the fish to bite and don’t worry about getting sunburnt, as the vessel also has a T-top.

There are many native species you’ll be able to catch: you can go bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish; troll for King Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi; or go on a Shark trip for Hammerhead, Blacktip, or Tiger Shark. The possibilities of what you might find are endless! It can take anywhere between 10 and 45 minutes to reach the first fishing spot but you’ll stay within the 9-mile limit. If you fish in the Gulf, you’ll mostly go about a mile-and-a-half off the coast.

The captain uses an array of gear and it is all top of the line equipment and it’s included in the price.

Off The Clock Fishing Charters runs their trips year round. There is no minimum age policy for the kids on the boat, so this can easily be unforgettable family bonding time. Use this amazing opportunity and book a trip with Capt. Travis while there are still available dates.
