You’ll be fishing from a 23’ Dorado bay boat, outfitted with state-of-the-art electronics, safety gear, and fishing tackle. You and 3 other guests will be able to fish at the same time, and kids of all ages are welcome aboard. Capt. Ben provides his clients with top-of-the-line Daiwa rods and Avet reels so you can get the best quality experience while you fish.

Goliath Grouper is the main target on all of Capt. Ben’s trips. It’s his favorite fish to catch due to its huge size and confidence. Goliath Grouper are very curious and they don’t hesitate to approach the boat whatsoever. A typical catch can weigh anywhere from 200 to 500 pounds and can even get up to 700 pounds! They’ll fight back with everything they got, and are perhaps one of the most powerful species in the world.

These trips are strictly catch and release, so be sure to bring a camera so you can snap tons of pictures before letting the Grouper go. Also, be sure to bring some snacks and drinks, as well as sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. Everything else will be covered.

Capt. Ben’s also got your fishing license taken care of, so you can just come straight to the dock ready to fish. Come on down with a positive attitude and extra will-power, and get ready for an exciting experience! Book your next trip with Chew On this Charters and let Capt. Ben show you the time of your life!

I became a full-time charter captain in 2002. In 2004, I started a fishing show called "Chew On This." It's fishing television with intensity. Our legendary specialty is putting clients on Giant Goliath Grouper, which is a fish of a lifetime! We fish for Goliaths year-round, with the peak season on the east coast of Stuart, FL during the months of June, July, and August. Our largest Goliath Grouper ever landed was over 700 pounds! We've had clients land them upwards of 600 pounds with many in the 200–500 lb class!
