Southern Comfort IV Charters

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. 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. All you have to do is pack your lunch and hop on board!

Your boat for the day will be the ‘Southern Comfort IV’, a massive 52’ custom-built fishing vessel with plenty of space for up to 10 anglers. Fresh on the water in 2009, 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 Tiagra and Shimano TLD with custom-built bent butt rods to land Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. 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, an ice box, and even a kitchen area. The only thing that’s missing is you!

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!
