Hittin Bottom invites you to the amazing world of offshore sportfishing. Captain Garett has lots of passion and knowledge about fishing the Atlantic Ocean. More importantly, he’s proud that he can create a deep sea fishing experience his guests remember for a long time.

You’ll be fishing on a 31’ Contender center console powered by twin Mercury 300 HP engines. Simply put, this boat is a fishing machine with adequate dry storage and cover to keep you comfortable while fishing on the Treasure Coast, the world’s Sailfish capital. The boat is located less than a mile from Fort Pierce Inlet at Little Jim’s Bait & Tackle in Fort Pierce, Florida.

The Contender is ideal for chasing Tuna, trolling for Sailfish and Mahi Mahi, or making the seventy-mile journey to catch Blue Marlin. Swordfish, Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, and Kingfish are some of the other species that may be caught all year.

Capt. Garett covers all the fishing rods, bait, and ice you’ll need. After the trip, your catch will be cleaned and filleted free of charge. Make sure to pack some snacks and drinks for the day.

The trips are available year round, so pick any time you want. Hittin Bottom is ready to take you to your trophy fish!
