Wots Up Dock Charter Fishing

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!

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. In
