In demand!

Wots Up Dock Charter Fishing promises a great day out on the water, even if you’re not a fishing enthusiast! Join Captain Eugene, an avid angler who’s been fishing his whole life and finally made his dream of running a fishing charter come true.

He’s dedicated to making every guest feel at home and wants to share his lifelong experience with as many people as he can. If you have even a hint of curiosity you’ll learn a whole lot in just a matter of hours!

Every trip starts with a great boat! Hop aboard a 33’ Bertram fishing machine that will make every trip comfortable. There’s enough room for 6 guests to fish in comfort, without waiting for your turn. The boat features a private bathroom, a galley, and an enclosed lounge area. With lots of cozy seats in the shade, this will be an enjoyable ride.

With such a variety of fish species in the area, it can be hard to pick a trip. It’s best to get in touch with the captain and he’ll advise what’s best depending on the season or your skill level.

Go after Striped Bass, target Fluke and Black Seabass inshore, or go offshore for Bonito, Mahi Mahi, and False Albacore. If you’re a true hard-core angler, take a 24-hour trip to Canyons, where you can catch Tuna and Marlin.

Your licenses and fishing equipment (including fly gear) are covered by the captain. He’ll also clean your catch after the trip. You only need to prepare your snacks, drinks, and sun protection for the day.

Wots Up Dock Charter Fishing is here for your next adventure. You get a great crew, a great atmosphere, and before long some pretty great fish too!

    This trip is great for beginners, as you won't go too far off the coast. Stay inshore, anchor, and start catching those delicious Black Seabass! The captain covers your fishing equipment and licenses. Bring along any drinks and snacks you'd like to enjoy and you're ready to go!

    The technique you'll use depends on the time of year, but you'll mainly troll for Striped Bass. This is one of the most popular targets in the USA, and there's a good reason for it! Your captain provides all the gear you need for this hard-fighting fish so all you'll need to bring are any drinks and snacks you'd like to enjoy.

Born close to the water, I've enjoyed going fishing with my father and grandfather since I was a kid. This passion progressing into me getting my license to pursue massive Tuna fishing. In my 20's and 30's I was an avid offshore tournament angler, but now that's I'm older I truly enjoy taking in easy and chartering with other passionate anglers.
