Based in the historic Sailfish Marina of Jupiter, Florida, Do Stay Sportfishing provides top class offshore sportfishing trips out of the Palm Beach Inlet. Whether you want to hone your fishing skills, compete in a tournament, or simply enjoy cruising the Intracoastal Waterway in style, Captain Lou Mario and his crew will make sure your day is one to remember.

Your trip will take place aboard the “Do Stay”, a 37 ft Merritt that is the fourth boat ever built by this very well-respected boat manufacturing business. Constructed in 1957 specifically for catching Tuna, the boat is a classic that still combines sleek lines and fish-catching expertise today, sixty years on. Fully restored in 2008, the Do Stay has a well-appointed interior with an enclosed toilet, as well as a flybridge and tower for fantastic views of the surrounding ocean.

Do Stay Sportfishing runs a variety of sportfishing trips, ranging from four to eight hours long. Choose which one suits you best and head out into the Gulf Stream in search of game fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Sailfish. Both light and heavy tackle is carried on board, and the main fishing techniques are trolling and kite fishing (when conditions allow).

Please note - live bait is available to purchase at an extra cost. Equipment, ice, and water are included in the price, and the crew is happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day (gratuities are greatly appreciated).
