Enjoy your fishing trip with Chapman’s Charters aboard a 20’ Cape Horn center console, which comes powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine. Originally built in 1994, the boat was restored in 2017 and has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots.

Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fishfinder. The vessel is fitted with an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds, as well as an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day. There is enough space for up to four guests to enjoy their adventure in style and comfort. If you want to bring your kids, please note that they have to be at least five years old.

On your day out with Captain Michael and his Chapman’s Charters, you can go bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, or simply go snorkeling in the bay. The Captain is very familiar with the methods that work best to catch Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Grouper, King Mackerel, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Mangrove Snapper… and the list just keeps going!

A trip with Chapman’s Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, and live bait, as well as the licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it can be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip for a ride home, so that you could have it for dinner later or just fill the freezer. You will also be offered drinks during your fishing adventure.

Whether it’s your first time on the water or you are a professional fisherman, Chapman’s Charters will make sure you have a productive and fun time on the water. Book now and fish on!

I am a second generation captain. I grew up commercial fishing the central and northern California coast. In the early 2000's, I moved to the south to run crew boats in the Louisiana oil industry, which I did for ten years. I have operated boats, fished in three oceans and have a lifetime of experience on the sea.

Had a wonderful time and experience fishing with Captain Mike and 1st mate Wesley. They got as excited as we did every time a rod tip bent to the water. I had two 16 year olds out for their first time, and Captain Mike explained everything to them, helped us all, and made us feel so welcome to be on his boat. We had fish on the grill that night that he cleaned for us!
We will definitely make this at least a yearly event!
