A day with Legendary New Beginning Fishing Charters is a unique opportunity to butt heads with the best fish in the area and have a memorable experience on a Federally Permitted, Inspected and USCG Approved Vessel.

It comes powered by a 350 HP Detroit Diesel engine and can comfortably take up to sixteen anglers. The vessel is fully rigged with navigational electronics, such as a GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar. For the maximum comfort on the water, there is a toilet, a microwave oven, and a bed. Inside, the deck is air-conditioned and has a TV. As well as that, there is an anchoring system, a live bait tank, and an icebox for refreshments.

Depending on your personal preferences and how much time you intend to spend on the water, you will be fishing the wrecks, nearshore or head offshore to check what is biting. If you want to share your fishing adventure with other anglers all around the world, you can go for a split charter option and spend six hours targeting the fish of your dreams.

The trip consisted of myself, my brother, 2 future son in laws, and 3 grandsons.  We decided to do a guys trip and I reserved with New Beginnings based on the name Legendary and watching the video of Captain Steve.  Was sad to hear that Captain Steve would not be our captain due to health concerns, however Captain Rob and First Mate Tedd gave us the thrill of a lifetime.  Ted was great with helping each if us and making it enjoyable for the teenagers never allowing us to keep our hook out if the water to have more bait. Captain Rob put us on the fish and took his job seriously as he maneuvered the vessel.  He definitely has the experience and knowledge of Manning the vessel.  We did run into some shark at one time which would steal our catch and wrestled with some dolphin taking our bait but that was of no fault of the Captain. My youngest grandson enjoyed trying to bring the shark in.  I also appreciated the Captains help when he came out from the cabin to assist in getting other poles out of the way so he and Ted could pull the Cobia into the boat.  That catch was a nice fight.  Once we returned back to the dock after our time was up, it was a pleasure to see Captain Steve Ross waiting for us who greeted each of us and apologized for not being able to man the vessel.  All in all, we had a great time.  Legendary New Beginning backed up their name providing us with 94 pounds of fish to take home, providing a memorable trip for the grandkids and gave the adults something to brag about.  I would definitely recommend taking a trip with New Beginnings.  We vacation here yearly and we just found the boat and crew we will also be returning to.  Great Job!!
