Crabby Charters - Deep Sea Fishing

Black Marlin Ln
Cape Coral FL, United States

Crabby Charters welcomes you aboard for a fantastic day offshore fishing, launching from Cape Coral and traveling up to 60 miles out in search of monster fish. Target Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and hard-fighting Kingfish and Hammerhead Sharks around the deep-sea reefs offshore, then head home with a trunk of delicious freezer-fillers.

The Crabby is a 35’ Bertram Convertible with a 14’ beam. She has plenty of comfortable seating, as well as air conditioning, a private bathroom, and a large cabin area. She also has a spacious deck for fishing or just enjoying the ride. She is extremely stable at anchor.

The vessel is equipped with a full battery of marine electronics to get you on the fish. Her outriggers and downriggers spread you lines far and wide and her quality fishing tackle makes sure nothing escapes your hook. Not that it will want to, with a livewell full of fresh live bait and a variety of lures to tempt even the fussiest eater.

Captain Craig has spent his whole life fishing these waters and knows exactly where to find the biggest fish. All trips come with tackle, bait, ice, and cleaning and filleting for all your catch. Licenses are covered by the boat, so all you have to bring is sunscreen, a camera, and your biggest cooler, because you’re going to catch a lot of fish!
