Top Cat 2

When you’re in the mood for some top fishing, turn to Top Cat 2 fishing charters! Captain Tyrone Jackson is a local guide who spent most of his life fishing, and now, he’s happy to share his experience with his customers.

The captain specializes in fishing the bay and jetties, so there’s a variety of fish that you can catch. There are multiple trips to choose from, so whether you’d like to hit the water for 5 or 8 hours, there will be something on offer for you. Big Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder are always around, and King Mackerel, Cobia, and Red Snapper are also known to make an appearance.

Your ride and fishing platform is a shiny new 23’ Shoalwater boat with a strong 250 HP Suzuki engine. She’s a smooth fishing machine well-suited for different types of angling and reliable navigational electronics. Capt. Tyrone will provide quality Shimano and Penn gear, live bait, and all the expert advice you might need.

When you come back to shore, you can get your catch cleaned and filleted for your convenience. Make sure to bring a cooler so that you can take home the fruits of your day’s work. It’s also a good idea to have some drinks and snacks with you, and lunch, especially if you’re heading out on a full day expedition.

If you like fishing with your kids, you’re welcome to bring them along, as long as they’re 10 and older. This way, they can fully enjoy the experience and the captain will have life jackets for everyone.

Let Top Cat 2 show you the best fishing spots around Crystal Beach and fun times on the water are all but guaranteed!
