Take a ride with Alpha Mike Sport Fishing aboard a spacious 39-foot yacht, which comes powered by twin 450 HP Caterpillar engines. The boat has a carrying capacity of ten anglers and a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a radar, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. The vessel is air-conditioned inside and features a bed, a toilet, a kitchen with a refrigerator, and a shower, as well as a TV. There is an anchoring system, a flybridge, a fighting chair for the most adventurous anglers, a live bait tank, outriggers, and downriggers.

Alpha Mike Sport Fishing offers fishing trips inshore and offshore. The Captain and the crew are familiar with a wide range of fishing techniques. You will get a chance to practice fly fishing, popping, jigging, spinning, trolling, bottom fishing, and heavy tackle. The waters of the southern region are excellent for fishing all year round, going for a variety of fish species. Your main target may be Yellowtail Amberjack, Red Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish, Sailfish, Snook, Yellowfin Tuna, as well as Blue and White Marlins. If an eight-hour trip is not enough for you, Alpha Mike Sport Fishing has something else to offer. You can travel from 40 to 70 miles offshore for some big action and catch-and-release practice, starting early in the morning or later in the evening.

Your fishing trip with Alpha Mike Sport Fishing will include your rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fly fishing equipment. You will be offered snacks, drinks, and lunch during the trip. As well as that, the crew will clean and fillet the catch.
