Your trip will take place aboard the “Billistic,” a 48 ft Viking boat that was designed for getting anglers to the very best offshore sportfishing spots. Meticulously maintained and cleaned, this boat is fully equipped with all the latest gear for your sportfishing adventure. The vessel is kept in pristine condition from head to toe, with its kitchen, air-conditioned living area, and two heads thoroughly cleaned prior to every single trip. Looking for cleanliness, quality equipment, experienced crew, and great fishing? This is the boat for you.

Blue Water Connection offers a wide range of fishing trips, starting from a four hour nearshore trolling trip and extending all the way up to a 24 hour bluewater adventure offshore. Nearshore trips will see you fishing for King and Spanish Mackerel and Bonitas, while longer trips will take you to the deeper waters where Blue and White Marlins, Tuna, Dolphin, and Wahoo can be caught. 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!

Justin and Brandon were both amazing! We had a blast on this short trip fishing for red snappers, vermillion snappers and triggerfish- even though we couldn’t keep everything. We even caught a 23in grouper! Justin was very professional and courteous, and Brandon was amazing to work with. He made learning how to fish so easy and was right by us to help every step of the way. They were both respectful and very kind to us, making us feel at home right away!
