All breeds of anglers have the opportunity to fish Florida’s Atlantic coast like never before with Southern Comfort IV Charters. You can fully enjoy their hospitality and professionalism and who knows, you might even come back for more!

Troll the offshore grounds or drift fish the wrecks and reefs. Certain species are more prevalent in different seasons, so if you are targeting a specific species, it’s best to call in advance to find out when that time of the year that might be. The best thing about this part of Florida is that you don’t even have to travel too far out to get to deep waters – it’s almost in your backyard.

Black and Red Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sailfish, Wahoo, Kingfish, Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper, Skipjack and Albacore Tuna – all these and more await offshore. We will always try our best to keep you and your guests entertained and go for what is biting at the time. Again, it is a good idea to touch base with us prior to your charter to make a game plan between crew and guests.

The ‘Southern Comfort IV’ is a massive 52’ custom-built fishing vessel with plenty of space for up to 10 anglers. She can cruise at a top speed of 30 knots thanks to her twin Cummins engines.

The Southern Comfort IV is fully outfitted with everything you need for a successful trip. She comes complete with stellar gear by Shimano TLD with custom-built bent butt rods to land Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. We use Penn 4/0 outfits for the reef fish. The Southern Comfort IV has all the comforts of home with her clean restroom, freshwater sink, air-conditioned cabin, a Bluetooth multimedia system with speakers to play your favorite tunes.

I am a true native, live and grew up in south Florida fishing inshore lakes, Intracoastal, and offshore waters, diving all the local wrecks and reefs, and surfing! Can't picture doing anything else but being on the water. Through my diving experience, I know the reef from the bottom of the water up! I love to be diversified and like to adjust the charter depending on the conditions for optimal catching, whether it is trolling or drift or both!
