Best Catch Fishing Charters

1485 South Tamiami Trail
Venice FL, United States

Best Catch Fishing Charters invites you on a true deep sea fishing adventure you will talk about for years to come. You can travel as far out as 70 miles offshore into the real deep blue waters that hide the huge reef fish everyone wants to catch but only a few have the chance of targeting!

The charter is located in Venice, Florida and provides a first class fishing service along with an outstanding customer service. With a federally permitted boat for both pelagic and reef fish in the Gulf of Mexico, Best Catch Fishing Charters are legally allowed to take up to 6 passengers outside of 9 nautical miles and into the federal waters.

The federal offshore waters are where the majority of bigger fish species can be found in abundance. You can target Red Snapper, Black Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, Jack (African Pompano), Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, and Blackfin Tuna in huge depths and up to 70 miles offshore.

If you want to stay within the 9 miles for some nearshore fishing, you can target Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, King Mackerel, Barracuda, and smaller Groupers, too.

Best Catch is a 32-foot Wellcraft Coastal offshore sport fishing boat, originally built in 1987, and restored in 2011. It is powered by two 660 HP Mercruiser engines that give it great speed and stability on the water. It features a toilet which is a huge plus on offshore trips, a bed, a kitchen, a flybridge, and all the safety and electronic equipment needed for a successful trip.

You will be offered charters of four, six, eight, ten, and twelve hours, as well as custom overnight trips. You even have the option to fish both nearshore and deep-sea offshore waters all on the same trip, so it’s really just up to you and how much time you can dedicate to the best sport for fishermen.
