Go fish with Captain Mike, spend several hours on the offshore waters around Jacksonville, and who knows, maybe you’ll come back to land with your next trophy catch! Your guide has spent decades fishing in the area and he’s dedicated to finding the best fishing grounds for his customers.

His 35’ Bertram sport fisher is your ride and fishing platform, perfectly suited for offshore fishing conditions thanks to its twin 315 HP Yanmar engines. The vessel is comfortable, safe, and there’s room on board for up to 6 people to fish at the same time. You’ll use the flybridge to spot the schools of fish from afar, a live bait well to keep your live bait close, and outriggers to cover more ground.

With a private toilet and an air-conditioned cabin with a kitchen and resting area, no matter how much time you spend on the waves, you’ll be comfortable. To reel in your catch, you’ll use quality Penn equipment, and live bait will be provided for you. With the first mate to help you with everything, you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Depending on your fishing preferences and how much time you’ve got, you can take your pick between half day and full day trips. On half day excursions, you’ll mostly focus on bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Amberjack, and more. When you book a full day expedition, you’ll be chasing the great pelagics like Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Wahoo, and the list goes on.

If you’d like to bring your kids with you, feel free to do so, as long as they’re 12 and older, your guide will have life jackets for them too. While lunch is provided on full day jaunts, you should bring food and drinks on shorter trips.
