Whether you are looking to butt heads with the offshore fish species, such as Red Snapper, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and many more, or want to chase Redfish, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper or Flounder close to the shore – Emerald “C” Charters got you covered.

A trip with Emerald “C” Fishing Charters comes inclusive with all you need for a successful capture of the fish. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, as well as the fishing licenses. If you decide to keep the catch, the crew will clean and fillet it for one hour after the trip, so that you could take it home with you and taste for dinner later. Or fill the freezer! As well as that, you could feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you.
