It’s time to head to Jupiter, Florida, for an awesome day of fishing with Lucky Chip Charters. Owned and operated by Captain Chip himself, he has over 4 decades of fishing experience in the area. He knows the best places to take you for the most productive day out. He enjoys helping his customers have a top day, especially if this is your first time fishing.

Step on board his 19’ flats boat, perfect for groups of 2 anglers to fish from. This boat will get you into those hard to reach areas so you can fish right on top of the fish.

Some of the species you’ll be able to target include Snook, Pompano, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Tarpon, Mangrove Snapper, Bull Shark, and plenty more. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it.

Children of all ages are welcome on board. They’ll love reeling in their first fish and will have a great story to tell their friends back at school. There are life vests on board for them.

The captain will provide top quality rods and reels from Shimano, Penn, and Star. There’s also a fly fishing rod that he can bring along, but you’ll need to give him prior notice.

Depending on the season, you’ll either catch live bait at the beginning of the trip or need to buy it at the marina before you begin. After the trip, the captain can clean your catch for you – remember to have a cooler with ice in the car ready to take your catch home in.

You’ll need to bring food and drinks along with you on the trip. There’s a cooler on board that you can put them in. The captain also offers flexible departure times on his 4-hour trips.

Book today with Lucky Dip Charters – you’re sure to be back time and time again.
