Grandpa Charters is a family-owned and operated business, which offers fun-focused fishing experienced running May through October, fishing both inshore and offshore for a huge variety of species, from Redfish and Sheepshead all the way up to Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin.
The “Grandpa” is a 40’ Northshore fishing boat which has served faithfully since 1998, and still makes for a world-class fishing platform. Equipped with everything from the latest electronics, to outriggers and a fighting chair, the “Grandpa” is easily adaptable to any style of fishing.
Having been designed and built specifically as a fishing vessel, the boat excels both inshore and offshore, and has plenty of space on deck for up to 6 guests. The vessel also has a large flybridge for you to take in the view, and a head for extra comfort on longer trips.
With trips ranging anywhere from two to ten hours, and targeting species as diverse as Flounder and Tuna, you would expect a variety of equipment to tailor each trip to the fish you are after. That is exactly what you get, with light and heavy tackle, and the option to troll, drift, bottom fish, spin, and even spearfish to make sure you land what you are after!
Most of all, the thing that makes Grandpa Charters special is the level of experience and skill with which each trip is run. Captain Russell is a 3rd generation Captain, and he and his mate have over 50 years of experience between them. This means you are in safe and capable hands, that you can trust to make sure you have a fun and productive trip, every time.
All trips come with tackle, bait, and licenses for everyone on board, so all you have to do is turn up and have fun!

I decided to take a near shore trip as my 11 year old son has never been on a boat. Captain Russell put us on the fish right away and Mate Mike made sure we had the right rigging to keep catching. My son had a great time catching bluefish and Spanish mackerel. Ms. Holly kept in touch with me on the days leading up to the trip to make sure we had everything we would need. It was a great experience for us and literally all we had to do was show up and catch fish, Grandpa Charters took care of the rest. I am hoping to book an off shore trip soon, based on the success of the near shore trip.
Thank you Captain Russell and crew!
