Valentine Sportfishing Charters

Stuart FL, United States

Valentine Sportfishing Charters invites you to the ultimate offshore fishing adventure from Stuart, Florida. The charter is operated by a well respected Captain, Darrin Cobb, known among colleagues and guests as “D Cobb”. He has fished and competed in Billfish tournaments professionally for over 25 years and brings this wealth of knowledge and experience to every charter.

With Captain Darrin, you can have a great time chasing Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Cobia, Grouper, and Tuna. Starting in May, Mahi Mahi come into the shallower waters in large schools when making their way northward; Sailfish are available almost year round with October through February being their prime time; Grouper can be caught as of May 1st when their season officially opens, and the Yellowfin Tuna bite is excellent from May to early October.

Valentine Sportfishing Charters operates a 54-foot Hatteras Convertible known as Valentine. This tournament proven classic, powered by twin 1250 HP Caterpillar engines has all the amenities needed for a great day or several days on the water. Safety features, including life vests, a CPR-trained crew, and the latest navigation such as GPS and fish finding technology will all ensure a safe and productive day on the water.

This vessel is very comfortable featuring three full bathrooms, three staterooms, air-conditioning, a 42” television, a full kitchen and an ice maker, as well as direct TV and The Sunday NFL Ticket so you never miss a game!

Valentine Sportfishing Charters will provide you with the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial bait, a fishing license, and a fish processing service at the end. You will be happy to know they have outriggers and a fighting chair to maximize the catch, and professional first mates who work super hard to make your day an unforgettable adventure!
