Bounty Of The Bay Charters can customize each trip to your needs and desires. If you just want to check what is biting, then the half-day trip is just what you need. You can choose between fishing inshore or flats, going for Flounder, Redfish, Trout or King Mackerel, Black Drum, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, and some more. The six-hour trip will see you sailing up to 9 miles, and the offshore package can get your hands full on Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Cobia, Almaco Jack… the list just keeps going! Your targeted species will depend on the season and what is biting best.

Captain Pete uses a great variety of fishing techniques, including light tackle, heavy tackle, spinning, popping, flounder gigging, jigging, bottom fishing, and many more.

Your trip with Bounty Of The Bay Charters will include fishing rods, reels, live bait, tackle, licenses, and lures. The Captain will clean and fillet the catch for you to take home. You may want to bring your own food and drinks aboard.
