About this listing
Custom Contender () originally built in 1988, and restored in 2000. Powered by 2 370HP 5.9 Cummins engines.
Fishing out of Crystal River, Florida, Scarfish Charters are only a short drive from Tampa, Clearwater, Orlando, St Petersburg, Ocala, Gainsville and many other local cities. With some of the best Grouper fishing anywhere in the United States just on their doorstep, they offer unrivalled bottom fishing and jigging adventures.
Fishing aboard ‘The Don’, a 35 foot Contender, Capt. Che’ Ruble will guide you to the best fishing locations in style. The boat was originally built for the U.S. Coast Guard, but was converted to a sport fishing machine after just a few years of service. Powered by two 370 HP Cummins engines, the boat’s streamlined build provides a fast run to the best fishing spots. With plenty of dry, comfortable seating, the boat is covered by a canopy to protect you from the weather and features an enclosed, stand up bathroom for your convenience.
Capt. Che’ mainly targets Grouper, Blacksea Bass, Triggerish and Mangrove Snapper, as well as whichever pelagic species might be swimming in the area at that time of year.
A talented and experienced bottom fisherman, Che’ won first and second place for Grouper in the 2015 FGTC Fishing Tournament. Having run some of the top boats in the Gulf of Mexico on the West Coast of Florida including “The Apollo”, “The Rodfather” and the vessels for “Fisherman’s Paradise”, Che’ decided a few years ago that it was time for him to own and operate his own vessel. Whatever your level of experience, he and his crew have been trained to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime!
