Come and go fishing with Stressed Out Charters and leave all your stress at the dock. Captain Scott Luster has over 34 years of tournament and fishing knowledge. He and his crew specialize in creating memories - from your kid’s first fish to the parent’s largest fish they have ever caught. This isn’t the usual charter, as the crew will try to teach and show how they do what they’re best at. From showing what fish look like on the sonar, to the knots they tie.

The boat you will be on is a 28’ Angler center console that is set up for 6 guests fishing comfortably. The boat has been recently restored and she’s powered by twin 250 HP Suzuki engines. There’s also new Raymarine navigational electronics, so you can be sure you’ll always be at the right spot. For more comfort on longer trips, the boat also features a private toilet.

On all of the trips, while offshore, you’ll look for pelagics and other fish to catch. Go after Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Kingfish, Cobia, and many more.

On the way out, you will ride comfortably in Sea Tamer bean bags. At the end of your trip, the deckhand will clean and bag your fish. He works for tips, so please bring some cash with you. While he is cleaning your fish you can walk up to Tacky Jacks restaurant and relax or sit outside in the swings beside the docks.

Get in touch if you want to book this crew for tournaments and rodeos.

Stressed Out Charters will do anything they can to make your day enjoyable. You just need to pick a date and show up on time.

I’ve been tournament fishing and offshore fishing for over 30 years. There's lots of experience and knowledge to share, so I love taking new guests on water and showing them how fun fishing can be.
