Go Long Charters

Sports Marina Road
Venice LA, United States

Go Long Charters offers all-out offshore sportfishing marathons hitting the farthest reaches of the Gulf of Mexico in search of big game pelagics and deep-water bottom fish. Captain Gray Long is a bluewater fanatic who will stop at nothing on the hunt for huge fish. If you like the idea of going head-to-head with the ocean’s top predators, this guy will make it happen.

Capt. Gray specializes in everything from popping for 100-lb Yellowfin to deep-dropping for Scamp Grouper and giant Amberjack. With such a range of techniques and target species on offer, you’ll need a versatile boat and the best equipment on the market if you want to stand a chance. Luckily, that’s exactly what you’ll get!

Climb aboard Capt. Gray’s 38’ SeaHunter center console and you’ll know you’re fishing with the best. The boat is powered by triple Yamaha outboards kicking out 900 HP between them. The boat can cruise at staggering speeds and Capt. Gray doesn’t mind burning fuel on the way out – he even includes it in the price.

Once you get to the fishing grounds, a full battery of marine electronics will sweep the deep in search of sea monsters. You could be fishing around floating offshore oil rigs and drill ships for monster Yellowfin Tuna or trolling weedlines for bull Mahi and Blue Marlin. You can also drop lines hundreds of feet down for the biggest bottom fish you’ll ever see.

This is your chance to take your game to a whole new level. This is real bucket list stuff. Make your fishing dreams a reality and head home with a literal truckload of fish.
