Big, comfortable center console specializing in bottom fishing. This Custom Carolina is built with a single Cummins 425HP diesel engine. 

These waters are known for Mahi Mahi, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, Almaco Jack, Amberjack, Atlantic Mackerel, Black Seabass, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Vermilion Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Gray Triggerfish, and more – with any luck, they’ll make your reel scream. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, trolling, drifting, or bottom fishing.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 34’ Carolina Irving Forbes center console that holds up to 6 passengers. It has outriggers and everything you need for a productive day on the water. Capt. Howard will provide rods and reels for you. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. It’s customary to tip the Mate 20% to show your appreciation. Your fishing license for the day is covered by the charter boat, just show up ready for some fishing! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain.

It’s never a bad idea to bring sunglasses, bottled water, and sunscreen (non-spray). Drinks will be available for you. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

And that’s it! Your fishing trip with Lightweight Fishing Company LLC is just a click away.

I have been fishing the Treasure Coast for over 21 years. Fishing has been my life's passion, specializing in Snapper fishing and bottom fishing in general. I grew up learning firsthand from some of the most talented fishermen in Florida. I love sharing everything I have learned and creating an experience of a lifetime for every one I take fishing.
