Spend an unforgettable day fishing around the waters of Sneads Ferry. Ofishal Charters will help you explore the inshore and nearshore spots, while catching tasty fish on the way. The trips are available year round and anglers of all experience levels are welcome to join. You don’t need any kind of special preparations to enjoy this exciting sport.

You’ll be fishing from a 21’ Nautic Star boat that accommodates up to 3 anglers. She’s powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine and features the latest navigational electronics, a wireless trolling motor, and a live bait tank. Besides your guide, you’ll also be accompanied by first mate, who’s there to prepare your equipment and share useful tips.

The boat is equipped for different techniques, such as trolling bottom fishing, drift fishing, and spinning. This enables you to go after various fish species, such as Kingfish, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Bonito, Cobia, False Albacore, and more.

Your fishing equipment is fully covered by the captain and he takes care of your fishing license as well. You only need to bring some snacks and drinks for the day. To enjoy long hours on the boat, it’s best to have sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen with you.

Ofishal Charters and Capt. Justin can’t wait to make your next fishing experience amazing. Choose a date and fulfill your fishing dreams!
