Join Double O Fishing Charters on your next Florida fishing adventure! Owned and operated by Capt. Jacob Marsicano, he’ll make sure to do his utmost best to put you on the big ones.

You’ll fish aboard his 32’ Blackwatch boat, powered by two 315 HP Yanmar diesel engines. This fishing machine can accommodate any group, from families to hardcore anglers. It’s a comfortable vessel, with plenty of seating, shade, as well as a full bathroom.

Capt. Jacob’s boat is federally licensed. This means he can take you past the state water limit, into less pressured fishing grounds where the sea beasts roam. He’ll take you after a whole host of species, including bottom fish such as Red Snapper, Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Hogfish, and Goliath Grouper. If you opt to do some trolling instead, expect to catch the likes of Barracuda, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, and more.

Each trip includes the necessary fishing gear, bait, licenses, as well as drinks. There’ll also be a first mate on board to assist you throughout the trip, so tipping him for his efforts is appreciated. At the end of your trip, the crew will clean the fish you’ve caught, so it’s ready for you to put on the dinner table.

Book Double O Fishing Charters for a shot at filling the freezer with delicious fish and creating memories to last you a lifetime!
