Take a day off and spend it with Fred Gowdy Charters! Captain Fred will take you exploring local reefs, wrecks, and hard bottom, while catching the tastiest fish this area has to offer.
Fishing is a sport, but you don’t need to be a sportsman to enjoy it. If you’re new to this, just let the captain know and he’ll show you the basics. It’s not about being in shape, it’s just about getting a sense of touch.
You’ll be fishing on a 24’ Everglades center console that accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, which reaches a maximum speed of 40 knots. To help you navigate easily, the boat features GPS and fishfinder. You’ll also find a cooler, a live bait tank, and a private toilet on board.
A variety of fishing techniques you can use allows you to target all kinds of fish. Some of the catches you can go after are different kinds of Snapper and Grouper, Snook, Permit, Cobia, Barracuda, Tarpon, and Amberjack. Some of them provide great action and some of them make for the most delicious meal. Either way, there’s always something rewarding, whatever’s biting.
Capt. Fred fully covers your fishing license and equipment. He’ll also clean your catch after the trip, so bring a cooler for it, or find a nearby restaurant and go straight for a feast! Bring some snacks, drinks, and sun protection for the day on the boat.
