Bentley's Charters – Deep Sea

Captain Chad Bentley is a friendly and skilled angler who’ll take you to the best spots and make sure you have a successful and fun trip. Pick a day that suits you and create lovely memories as you fish the rich and beautiful waters of Holiday!

Your journey will start on a restored 30’ Contender center console. It’s big enough to carry 6 anglers, runs on twin 225 HP Yamaha engines, and uses GPS, a fishfinder, and radio for navigation. Its fishing equipment includes outriggers, downriggers, and a livewell. You can use the onboard toilet, store your fish and drinks in an ice-box, and you’ll also have a first mate at your disposal.

You can go after Lane Snapper, Red Snapper, Scamp Grouper, Almaco Jack, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, as well as many other prized species. To catch them, you and the captain can use bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, as well as drift and kite fishing, all using heavy tackle. You get to keep all the fish you catch.

Captain Chad covers you for all the fishing gear and will clean and fillet your catch, free of charge. Before you depart, just make sure you have your fishing licenses as well as the snacks and drinks of your choice.

Come fish with Bentley’s Charters and have a terrific time on the water!
