With access to the famous Gulf of Mexico, Coastal Outfitters, Inc. will show you the best fishing Florida has to offer. Head out from New Port Richey to a range of fishing spots targeting delicious and exciting species. With Captain Chris Molinaro at the helm, you’ll be given the real outdoors treatment. He loves showing these stunning seas to newcomers, giving them a once in a lifetime experience to fish them.

You’ll cast from a beautiful 36’ Contender center console, drifting off to sea at speeds of up to 30 knots thanks to its 3 350 HP Mercury engines. With a GPS and fishfinder aboard, you’ll easily chase the fast fish across the water tops. The boat comes fitted with outriggers and a live bait well, as well as bench seating and bean bags to make your fishing experience comfortable. With an ice box on board, your complimentary water will be icy, so you just need to bring more drinks or snacks to fill her up.

Hit the reefs and wrecks and try jigging or bottom fishing to make that all important catch. You’ll go after beautiful, tropical, and incredibly tasty species, such as Snapper (including Red Snapper when in season), Grouper, Amberjack, Kingfish, and whatever else may bite.

With such a range of fish to target, Coastal Outfitters, Inc. will make your fishing dreams come true. All the latest Shimano fishing gear is provided, so just bring yourself aboard and get ready for an exciting time. Keep in mind smoking on board is not permitted and neither is excessive drinking.

At the end of the day, take advantage of the onboard cleaning and filleting service to take your delicious catch home. Wherever you head, you’re in for a fun-filled and thrilling experience, so step aboard!

Please note that fuel will cost extra on longer trips.

I became a fisherman because of my love of the outdoors and the ocean. I became a charter captain for my passion of bringing people to these experiences that most will never have in their lifetime. I have developed my style of fishing based on action and adventure. We literally hunt down the fish of target then throw live baits at them to get them all worked up – the end result is amazing and unforgettable.
