Shearwater Fishing Charters is operated by Captain Lynn Perry and specializes in nearshore and offshore fishing. Captain Lynn runs a family-friendly business and is more than happy to accommodate both veteran anglers and newcomers. With more than a decade of experience in the field, he is more than able to point you in the right direction.

You will be fishing on a 26’ Maycraft pilothouse boat that is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and can develop a cruising speed of up to 25 knots. It has all the necessary navigation and safety gear, as well as plenty of space for up to five prospective anglers. The top provides plenty of shade for when the hot summer months hit.

When going nearshore, you can expect to go out some three to five miles out and fish for the likes of Spanish Mackerel, as well as Bluefish and False Albacore. Offshore trips can take you anywhere in the range of 20-25 miles, where you will be trolling for Kingfish, Sailfish, Barracuda and Mahi Mahi. There are also plenty of artificial wrecks and reefs to explore if you’re a fan of bottom fishing.

All the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle come included in the price, as well as the required fishing licenses. After the trip, Captain Lynn will clean and fillet anything you’ve caught, for your convenience. It’s up to you to bring some snacks and drinks, and the adventure can begin.

Lynn is a great guy.  Very personable and fun to spend the day with.  Did whatever he could to keep us on fish.

1st time trip with this charter, Jordan was a great captain, he was constantly trying new things to catch fish.  In past things with other charters they did not do this.  I would highly recommend this charter and I will definitely be using them again.
