Giggity Charters invites you to join Captain Mike Higgs on a memorable nighttime Flounder gigging and bowfishing experience! Make the most out of this opportunity to try something new, have a blast – and yes, catch a lot of fish.

Take a break from the sun or spend a night out on the water with family and friends aboard Captain Mike’s one-of-a-kind 24’ Long Beach Customs boat. The vessel can sit up to 6 people and has a 225 HP Yamaha engine to take you to the best spots in no time. Your guide will have all the fishing gear prepared, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

One of the main perks of these night trips is that you will avoid crowds on the water, as well as the heat of Florida’s summer. Capt. Mike is a gigging expert, so he’ll guide you through everything and share some of his favorite tricks. This means you don’t need any prior bowfishing experience, your guide will help you with everything.

When it comes to the fish you can catch, Flounder is the most popular (and delicious) prey, but Sheepshead, Whiting, and Black Drum are right behind. When you’re not prowling the skinny waters, you can enjoy the peace and quiet, and you might even catch sight of stingrays, sea turtles, and dolphins.

Capt. Mike loves having little ones on board, as long as they’re 8 and older, but it’s wiser to bring them on shorter trips so that they don’t get sleepy and can enjoy the trip fully. Stock up on your favorite drinks and snacks, and you’re good to go.

With Giggity Charters, the fishing fun starts as soon as night falls!

You'll hardly find an angler more passionate about Flounder gigging than Captain Michael Higgs. He's been fishing since he was 5, and when he was 15, he discovered Flounder gigging, which quickly became his favorite thing to do. Aside from running fun and productive charters for the past 5 years, Capt. Michael also participates in various tournaments with significant success.
