Come to Blue Horizon Charters and enjoy fishing like never before. The charter specializes in shallow water Grouper fishing. Head out to Hudson, Florida, and let Captain Bill Hernandez lead you on these delightful trips.
 
The vessel you’ll be using is a 26’ Calcutta catamaran powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki engines. She’s got plenty of room for up to 4 guests and is rigged with high quality gear. This includes an in-depth navigation system, livewell, and an ice-box.

The captain’s a seasoned veteran who’ll show you the marine life in Hudson’s waters. Your main target is Gag Grouper, but some other species you’ll meet include Cobia, other Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel, and Flounder. You’ll fish with light tackle and will be able to troll, spin, and spearfish. You can keep all legal catch. Captain Bill welcomes kids, so you can have a great family trip in nature.

Regardless of your experience, you’re welcome to join and you’re covered for all the gear. All the tackle, lures, and live bait will wait for you on board. Licenses and drinking water are also provided. You’ll only need your own equipment in case you’d like to spearfish and free-dive.
