Capt. Ben aims to tailor every trip to your specific needs, so let him know what you’re after! Depending on the trip and species, you’ll be using techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, and casting. You’re looking at 3 to 6-hour trips, where you’ll usually go after the likes of King Mackerel, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Snapper, and Sheepshead, depending on the weather and time of year.

Your adventure begins on board a 25’ Sea Hunt boat that can fit a maximum of 4 anglers. The boat is fitted with an ice box.

The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water.

As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it.

You’re welcome to keep all legal species caught during the trip.

The boat will be supplied with drinks for your pleasure, be sure to let the captain know if you have any questions or want to bring your own.

Children are welcome aboard so you’re good to get the young ones started early.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Watts Charter Fishing & Guide.
