Ready to go to the deep blue waters offshore? It won't take long for land to disappear and the vastness of the ocean to become apparent. I've been fishing the Gulf Coast for over 20 years and still love it every day! I run a 38 ft Fountain center console to get you out fishing and back in as quickly as possible which means more fishing time and less ride time for you and your party! In nice weather we cruise at 50 mph! Bean bags for everyone will keep you comfortable on the ride and the boat is plenty big to fish 6 comfortably. All of our trips are for your party only and we cater to what you want to do. Troll, bottom fish, deep dropping, live bait, jigging -just let me know what you are after and lets go. Any questions - Call or message me!
