The boat is a 43 foot Bertram saltwater fishing boat, which was originally built in 1988 and restored in 2014. It is powered by two 550 HP Detroit diesel engines that make it a relatively fast sound vessel that will get you to your fishing spot fairly quickly.

First Strike Charters can take you on nearshore and offshore fishing trips where you can enjoy catching species such as Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Goliath Grouper, Wahoo, Red Snapper and Blue Marlin. The experienced crew will guide and educate you on the best technique for catching each species. They will also provide you with the necessary equipment such as rods, reels, tackle, lures and live baits. You will have a first mate onboard to assist you with fishing activities. The crew will also happily clean and fillet your catch and can recommend a restaurant that will prepare your catch for a reduced price.

I was more than happy to be your captain, it was a beautiful day on the water with a very beautiful couple and a lot of tight lines.

Custom pick up from the exact place I asked was so convenient. Greeted happily be the crew and immediately the knowledge started flowing. Learned so much local history and in formation on the way out to fishing grounds the time flew by. Did light tackle trolling up past Rose Island and Moose the First Mate was awesome really knows what he is doing. Captain Eddie was superb he really know how to handle a boat. Stopped at a shallow reef on the way back and snorkeled a little. Tons of fish and even had a grilled burger and a beer ready when we got back on the boat. 5 star experience hands down.
