Embark on a journey with Simon Says Charters and spend a few hours of great fishing action. A perfect match for serious fishermen and also perfect for families and children! Captain Matt and his crew will put you on the fish. Dont settle for a cheaper trip and only fish the overfished artificial reefs with these inexperienced captains around here! Book with us and fish some secret live bottom spots offshore. Or some great spots inshore!

You’ll be fishing on a 30’ Contender Center Console. Guaranteed to get you to the fishing grounds fast if the ocean allows. New for 2023 is a GPS Spot Lock Minn Kota trolling motor, guaranteed to hold you directly over some of the best fishing spots around. This center console has been upgraded with new navigational electronics and two 300hp Yamaha engines. There’s enough room for 6 anglers to join, so bring your friends and family along. The boat also features a bluetooth multimedia system and a portable toilet.

If you’re looking for something during the day, go offshore fishing. A short offshore trip will take you approximately 30 miles off the coast, while a full day trip goes up to 50 miles. Depending on how far you go, you can target Snapper, Kingfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, and more.

If you desire more inland fishing, take a trip on either the 30’ Contender or a 20’ Bay Boat to get to the shallower waters. You will target fish such as red drum, flounder, sea trout, sheepshead, black drum, and more.

Your fishing license and all equipment you’ll need for the day are covered by the crew. You only need to pack some food, drinks, and sun protection.

Simon Says Charters makes every day on the water something to be remembered. Take one of those days for you!
