Half Shell Fishing Charters is owned and operated by USCG licensed Captain Cody Margate. Captain Cody comes from a family of fishing guides, so fishing itself is sort of a family tradition for him. He runs a family-friendly business and encourages family trips because he knows how valuable it can be as a bonding experience for parents and their children.
You will be fishing aboard a 17’ Spyder FX17 that’s powered by a 70 HP Yamaha engine. Apart from the standard safety and navigation gear, it also includes an 8’ power pole, a Minn Kota trolling motor, three livewells, as well as a Yeti cooler to keep the drinks cold. Due to its small size, the boat can easily navigate some very tight places off the beaten path that others just can’t reach.
Captain Cody can offer you a variety of trip types ranging from harbor or backcountry cruises to shark tooth hunting, shark fishing (when in season), dolphin watching, flats fishing, fly-fishing, shark fishing and multi-species inshore fishing. There’s also quite a variety of fish, including Jack Crevalle, Bass, Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead, Sharks and more.
The price of the trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as the necessary fishing licenses. The captain will clean and fillet anything you catch for your convenience. As for drinks, there will be water and Gatorade aboard, but feel free to bring your own drinks too. Make sure to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and you’re all set.
