Tails Up Charters

If you are looking for the fishing experience of a lifetime, search no further than Tails Up Charters. They are dedicated to catching big fish, ensuring customer safety. Whether you are new to fishing or a seasoned angler, Ponce Inlet offers an extraordinary fishing experience!

Their 32ft Jarrett Bay is among the fastest and best riding boats in the Ponce Inlet Charter Fleet. Powered by 2 Mercury 300 HP engines, the vessel is capable of cruising at 35mph. In addition to its speed and favorable ride, the vessel also contains a bathroom and 6 beanbags for a relaxing ride to the fishing grounds. She has just been equipped with a comfortable “sea deck” surface. For a superior fishing experience, the boat is equipped with satellite weather imaging, sonar, outriggers, and two large live wells. 

Tails Up Charters offers a variety of different fishing opportunities for up to 6 anglers. They offer nearshore charters where you can fish the inlet and nearshore waters for Snook, “Bull” Redfish, Tarpon, Cobia, Tripletail, and Flounder. Want to venture further? Book a 6-hour or 8-hour trip and target Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Triggerfish, Cobia, Kingfish, and more! For a true Deep-Sea adventure, book a 10- or 12-hour trip and enjoy some of the best offshore fishing on the east coast of Florida. Trolling the gulf stream produces Blackfin Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, and Sailfish. While trolling can be explosive, deep-water bottom fishing is also extremely exciting. Enjoy catching hard fighting Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Amberjack, and Cobia while also filling the cooler with Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, and Porgies. 

The charter service covers fishing licenses, all tackle and bait required, ice, and fish cleaning. Simply step aboard with refreshments, snacks, and sunscreen. They welcome all guests including children. 

When you are ready to fill the cooler and create memories that will last forever, book Tails Up Charters!
