Southern Instinct

A trip with Southern Instinct is worth every single cent. With huge fish, a wealth of local knowledge, and incredible angling opportunities, this fantastic crew is a great choice for every breed of anglers.

If you have been looking for legit offshore fishing and are tired of slow boats, junk gear, and small fish – Southern Instinct has got the cure. They go deep into the Gulf, targeting the biggest and best around. After your day out on the water with them, you will come back to shore with a richer knowledge!

Permitted for Federal waters, they can go as far offshore as necessary, even up to 100 miles out. You will be using the latest high-end tackle from Dan James custom rods, Shimano reels, and Truth Reels. No expense is spared – you will be provided with only the best!

Leave all your daily routine behind and venture out for a full offshore extravaganza. Get your hands on Red Snapper when the season allows. Go for Yellowfin Tuna, Amberjack, Permit, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Red, Black, and Goliath Grouper, and even Cubera Snapper. The trips are all-inclusive; you will only need to bring your desire to hone your angling skills.

This and more will be yours on board a 36’ Contender center console. This fishing machine is a true work of art and comes powered by triple 250 HP Yamaha engines – it can almost “fly” to the fishing grounds!

The crew won’t be satisfied until they see all rods bent to the fullest. This is no cheap imitation, this is a real adventure. You won’t regret it.
