Goliath Charters Summerland

The crystal clear waters around the Florida Keys are a true fishing paradise. The local fishery is known internationally as one of the best places in the world for anglers. Here to help you to make the best of it is Goliath Charters with Captain Craig Clopper.

He’ll take you out on his 22’ Amencia center console, which is suitable for all different styles of fishing. Its 70 HP Yamaha engine, allowing it to go up to 25 knots, means you can get to different fishing grounds quickly. 

Captain Craig is more than happy to take you on different types of fishing trips when you go onto the water with him. Offshore fishing, reef fishing, wreck fishing, and flats fishing are all possible on the different areas of water on the Florida Keys. Great Barracuda, Bonefish, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi are but a few of the species that you’ve got a great chance of catching.

Craig uses Shimano gear for a great angling feel. If you would like to go fly fishing or spearfishing simply contact him in advance and he’ll provide the equipment. He’ll also clean your fish for you once you’ve returned to the land.

You’ll need to buy a fishing license beforehand and take some refreshments along too. Apply some suncream and put your shades on as you get ready to face some world-class fishing in the sun.
