With a flybridge for superior views of potential fishing areas and an enclosable cabin area, you will be comfortable and part of the action regardless of the weather conditions.

Trips run from six to twelve hours long and, depending which trip you decide to take, you could be fishing for species such as Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Bigeye Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, King Mackerel, and Marlin. Top of the range equipment is used on board, with Penn International rods and reels, Shimano rods, and Shimano Tiagra and TLD reels all part of the package. Light tackle, heavy tackle, and spinning gear are all supplied, ensuring that you always have access to the best tackle for the situation.

Charters include state and federal fishing licenses, bait, ice, and refreshments, and any fish you decide to keep will also be filleted and bagged at the end of your trip.

We didn’t know what to expect on our trip, since it was our first one. We had a wonderful time! I would suggest this trip, especially if it is your first time.  We are planning a longer trip with him!
