Wave Cutter Charters

Wave Cutter Charters takes you fishing around the rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The boat has seen numerous anglers fish, including both hardcore anglers who head out up to 100 miles offshore and novice anglers who take on juicy tablefare inshore. Now matter how experienced you are, one thing is sure - Wave Cutter will give you a trip to remember.

The game is on throughout the year. You could be searching for Sharks with your kids, or invite your fishing buddies for some real offshore adventure, chasing Tunas around the rigs. Bottom fishing for Snapper is another great way to spend your day on the water. Or, if you care to fish for Mackerel, how about some early spring nearshore trolling? Depending on your target, you could be fishing anywhere between nine and 100 miles.

Captain Joseph is the owner and an experienced captain and knows these waters like the back of his palm. He loves fishing and enjoys putting his customers on fish. For Captain Joseph, these trips are not just work, but also enjoyment. He will put all his efforts in providing you with a trip to long remember.

You will be fishing from a 48’ Bacle offshore sport fishing boat. She has the stability and strength to help you take on big fish in comfort. The boat is powered by two 660 HP Cummins engines and features quality navigational electronics. The boat comes with two heads, a shower, two refrigerators, a convection microwave oven, satellite tv and Blu-ray player, as well as outdoor and indoor stereo. The vessel has the capacity to sleep six fishermen and has a spacious deck for when the fishing action kicks off.

The crew will supply all the bait, tackle, and licensing, and will also clean and bag your catch. Please remember to include 15-20% gratuities for the first mate. You should bring food and drinks, but please avoid bringing glass bottles. When you’re dressing for the trip, choose shoes with no black soles, put on sunscreen, a cap, and sunglasses. Bring a camera and hop on!

I've always had a love for the water. I've spent a majority of my life working just to get enough time to take my family out fishing. I decided it was time to make a career out of my passion. We sold everything we owned and moved to beautiful Pensacola Fl. I worked as a deck hand on a local charter boat for one of the best captains in the Gulf, while I looked for my boat. After finding my boat and revamping her to her current glory, I now make a living doing what I love. I have always had the mentality of work hard and play hard. I love taking people out and seeing their face when they get that big tug on their line. I truly love what I do and I am positive you will love fishing on the Wave Cutter as much as I do.
