    This is a 6-hour trip. This trip is great for larger groups and avid anglers. This will give us enough time to head out into the ocean and do some wreck fishing, sight casting, and gives us every opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime. Large Drum (40+ lb), Cobia, and Amberjack are among the hardest-fighting in the ocean and are regularly caught on these trips. However, we can also enjoy the pristine waters of our world-class inshore fishery as well. Give us a call today to book your adventure.
