Gottemondood Charters welcomes you aboard! Visit Deerfield Beach and join in for a memorable day on the water. You’ll have lots of fun while exploring Florida’s offshore waters and chasing various prized fish species. Captain Matt Spector will make sure you have a great time as well as make a fine catch, so don’t hesitate and come visit Gottemondood Charters!

You’ll start your trip on a restored 30’ Topaz saltwater fishing boat that can sit up to 6 guests. Running on two 343 HP PCM Chevy engines with a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots, this heavy-duty vessel will get you to the fish in no time. It’s rigged with modern navigation technology, which includes a GPS, fishfinder, radio, as well as a radar system. The onboard fishing gear includes outriggers, downriggers, snorkeling and spearfishing equipment, and livewell. The boat’s got a flybridge and toilet, and you can also use its multimedia system and refrigerator. On board will also be a first mate you can turn to for any help you need.

There’s a fine choice of fish you can go after. This includes Marlin, African Pompano, Grouper, Tilefish, Yellowtail Snapper, and other interesting species. You’ll use light and heavy tackle and can try out various styles to catch them, including deep sea fishing, trolling, popping, kite fishing, and many more. All the fish you catch is yours to keep.

There’s nothing you’ll need for your trip except for some food and drinks. Captain Matt will supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses. He will also clean and fillet your catch so you can easily start cooking it when back home.

Join Gottemondood Charters for a wonderful fishing experience in Deerfield Beach!
