K2 Fishing Charters is owned and operated by Captain Gabriel “Gabe” Kovacs, an experienced local captain who has over 43 years of fishing experience. Located right by the Venice Inlet, K2 Fishing Charters are ready to take you fishing offshore in the bountiful Gulf of Mexico.

Your fishing trip will take place aboard a stable and sturdy SeaCraft boat that features a T-Top and a toilet in the center console for the comfort of everyone on board. There is plenty of space on the boat for up to six people to fish, and it is fitted with top of the range electronics by Furuno and Garmin to pinpoint the very best fishing spots for the conditions on the day.

K2 Charters specializes in bottom fishing for species such as Snappers and Groupers, although they are also happy to do trolling and kite fishing on your charter. They catch a wide range of species, including Kingfish, Red Snappers, Triggerfish, Cobia, and many more. Both light and heavy tackle is carried on board to make sure you have the right tools for whatever the day’s fishing throws at you.

All the equipment and fishing licenses you will need for your trip are furnished by K2 Fishing Charters, and Captain Gabe will also be glad to clean and fillet your catch once you return to the dock.

My son and I had a great time. Caught a lot of red snapper and 1 cobia. Will go on full day trip next time.

I was visiting Florida for only a couple of days to visit my grandson. This trip was booked last minute (the night before) and we were so happy that they contacted us right away so we knew we would be all set for the morning. Normally the captain has a mate to help pull in fish, bait hooks, etc. but because we booked so late the mate was not available. The captain went out of his way to help us with anything we needed and was more attentive then 3 mates. He went out of his way to make sure we caught fish and that my grandson had a good time. We caught plenty of fish and had a fantastic time! The Captain also cleaned the fish and “make no bones about it” he was a great guy, thank you K2 fishing.
