Lazy Day Charter llc

(9) In demand!

Lazy Day Charter offers fishing trips out of Bayport, Hernando Beach, Pasco, and Citrus County, Florida. Spend a relaxing and enjoyable day on the waters close to the shore or head up to 25 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico.

If you don’t want to travel too far out, check the bite close to the shore. Fish the waters within five miles from the shore for a variety of inshore species. Take as many species as you possibly can from your personal ‘bucket list’. Target Amberjack, Shark, Flounder, Sheepshead, Weakfish, Tarpon, Bonefish, Bluefish, Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Kingfish, Snapper, Drum, Permit, Sheepshead, Pompano… and the list just keeps going!

Or leave the shore behind and head up to 25 miles out. Test the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and go after Grey Triggerfish, Red Snapper (when in season), and Lane Snapper.

And if you want to try something different on your next vacation, your captain will take you scalloping. These trips are especially great for kids!

No matter which trip you choose, Lazy Day Charter will take you out aboard a 23’ 2016 Tidewater center console. This clean and spacious boat comes powered by a 300 HP Evinrude engine and is well-prepared for the current bite. The vessel features a private room with a portable toilet for your comfort during the day. Its top-notch navigational electronics include Lawrence sonar, GPS, and fish finding equipment.

All trips come with quality fishing gear and tackle, suitable for battling whatever you can hook into. You only need to show up with your own camera, drinks, and food.
