Just Cuz invites you on an offshore fishing adventure starting out of Stuart Florida. Spend a day on the water and have lots of fun as you chase many different species that dwell in the area. You’ll have all the help of Captain Bart Sherwood who’ll take you to offshore waters, reefs, as well as wrecks, and make sure you have a great time on the water. Join in and have loads of fun with Just Cuz!

You’ll be using a deluxe 43’ Merritt offshore sport fishing boat that can sit up to 6 anglers. An all-new 2018 model, the captain has invested over $600.000 in a complete refit of this iconic sport fisherman. It runs on two 450 HP Cummins engines and uses full-featured navigation electronics for a safe and fast journey. It’s got various facilities you can use, including a kitchen, toilet, and flybridge. To maximize your comfort, there’s air-conditioning, a TV, refrigerator, as well as an ice-box. The boat’s fishing gear includes a fighting chair, livewell, outriggers, and downriggers. A first mate will also be joining your trip.

You’ll chase Mahi Mahi, Goliath Grouper, Blackfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Swordfish, and more. You’ll use light and heavy tackle to bottom and deep sea fish, troll, spin, jig, as well as fly and kite fish. You can bring kids on your trip and you’re free to keep all the fish you catch and take it home.

The captain will supply you with the tackle, live bait, and lures, and will clean and fillet your catch. Before you depart, just make sure that you’ve got your licenses, fly fishing gear, as well as some snacks and drinks.

All federal permits and licenses included.
