Mason Creek Outfitters

Are you ready for a great day out, fishing amongst beautiful natures, and creating memories that will last a lifetime? Book a trip with Mason Creek Outfitters for an awesome adventure, that allows you to mix up your day with both snorkeling and scalloping.

You’ll spend the day with the charming Captain Robert Busacca aboard his 22’ Renegade Nomad center console. This beautifully maintained boat can comfortably fit you and 3 of your fishing friends without getting your lines tangled.

This boat has a 175 HP Mercury engine. Coupled with full navigational equipment, including fishfinder, you’ll be on top of the fish with your lines in the water before you know it.

This area is fantastic for targeting Redfish. On all of the trips offered you’ll be able to catch this delicious fish. Also on the menu is Sheepshead, Snook, and Spotted Seatrout. Between July and September, you are welcome to mix the trip up and go scalloping too. Children especially love scalloping, which is essentially an underwater easter egg hunt.

On all trips you can also choose whether to help the captain fish for live bait. If you wish to have your whole trip dedicated to going after your dream catch, please let the captain know before the trip so he can prepare the live bait. If not, you’ll catch it together on the day.

You’ll use all local gear to fish. Shimano rods and reels that have been made specifically to fish this area will give you the extra edge. Drinks are also included on every trip, and your fishing license for the day is provided.

You will need to bring along food on these trips. On the full day especially you’ll need to keep your energy up.

There is no better time book, for a family-friendly day out that you’ll all talk about for years to come.

Captain Robert Busacca has been fishing the waters of Florida since he moved there in 1988, and first started fishing even before that. He decided to get into chartering trips as he loves fishing with people and teaching them about the local species. A lot of his friends were captains, so he saw how great it is to do your hobby as your job. He is looking forward to welcoming you on board his boat for a fishing adventure.
