These amazing species, along with Amberjack, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, Bonefish, and Barracuda could be all yours tomorrow!

Simply Hooked Fishing Charters will make your deep sea dreams come true aboard their 32’ Sabalo vessel.

The boat also features a flybridge to spot top-water feeders and a restroom for your maximum comfort.

Try your hand at light or heavy tackle fishing, test your angling skills or learn a new technique. Go for drift fishing, trolling, deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, spinning, and jigging. Your captain will provide you with all the gear, tackle, bait, and lures to make an outstanding catch possible.

All charters also include a valid fishing license and a complimentary fish cleaning service.

About the Captain

Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, United States
Member since July 2016

Captain Tom Markham was born and raised to fish. A forth generation Floridian, he grew up on the backwaters. Tom’s playgrounds were the channels and creeks of the Intracoastal Waterways, which later become his daily commute to work. Tom spent his summer vacations fishing for Tarpon and catching bait with his father Wayne – he loved every minute of it. Tom’s teenage years were spent in Pine Island Sound and Cayo Costa before he began exploring the Gulf. He fell in love with offshore game fishing – the rest is history.

The captain and mate worked hard to make this an awesome experience. They ensured that everyone had a chance at fish. They went the extra mile to get us on very decent fish. I highly recommend this charter.

I have been out on deep sea boats many times, never had i had such a great experience as this private charter with Capt. Tom and his first mate. From finding great fishing spots, to helping coach my boys through landing their first “big” fish this trip was perfect.
