You may also like to try an offshore bottom fishing trip, targeting tasty Snappers and Groupers and the rod-bending Amberjack (in season).

The latest top of the line tackle is supplied on every trip. All you need to bring is a sense of adventure!

The captain put us on the fish and even though seas were rough he kept us in place until it played out. It was impressive. didn’t have to change sites much so you’ll “get your fish on.” The mate did an excellent job. When (not if) you pulled in a fish, he had it off the line, and your hook baited up to go again in seconds. Follow their instructions! You’ll have a great time and bring plenty of fish back to the dock. If you just want to take it easy, the boat is very comfortable with lots of cabin space and all the amenities.

10 hour trip trolling and bottom fishing yielded great results. We caught the limit on mackerel in the morning and headed to deeper water. Landed a grouper, several white and mingo snapper, and still had time to look for bigger sport. The guys were great, and the boat was super clean. I would definitely book another day on billistic!
