Action Outdoor Fishing And Diving

When you’re in need of some serious fishing action out of Freeport, join Action Outdoor Fishing And Diving! Your host and guide, Captain JT, has over 20 years of fishing experience. He’ll make sure you have a memorable trip with him, no matter how skilled you are. Both avid anglers and beginners are welcome to join. Capt. JT is a family man and enjoys having kids on board and helping them catch their very first fish!

You’ll be fishing on a 38’ Luhrs boat that was built in 2000 and refurbished in 2020. This modern fishing vessel accommodates up to 6 guests, with enough space for everyone to fish in comfort. The boat features an enclosed bathroom, a cabin with AC system, and lots of seating space in the shade. She’s equipped with state of the art electronics, safety equipment including satellite phone, epirb, and 8 man life raft.

The length of the trip dictates how far off the coast you can go. Half day trips will take you around 15 miles offshore, where you can target Kingfish by trolling or jigging around rigs. 10-hour trips are great if you’re bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper, while 12-hour adventures take you after Shark, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Gruper, and more. The overnight action brings Tuna to the table, alongside other pelagic predators.

The crew covers your fishing equipment, including top-notch rods, reels, and lures. They will also clean your catch free of charge. You only need to prepare your fishing license in advance and pack some food for the day.
