Sweet Lips Fishing Charters is your one-stop shop for offshore adventures with a local captain. There is a trip tight for you, no matter your age and skill level.

Join Christopher Hazlett and hop onboard his colorful and powerful 25’ SeaCat catamaran. The boat features a wide 9’6’’ beam and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. It comes powered by twin 150 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engines.

This cool orange boat is outfitted with the latest Garmin and Raymarine electronics, a live well tank to make your hooks irresistible, and an anchor winch. There is a portable toilet in the hull, which makes the vessel perfect for the full-day trips. Of course, there is also an ice box on board to keep your drinks and lunch cool during the trip.

As far as fishing is concerned, the possibilities with Sweet Lips are endless. You can target anything from inshore species to the blue water monsters.

Bottom fish in 70’ of water (or deeper!) for Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Triggerfish, Cobia, and many more. Capt. Christopher will provide you with 30-50lb rods with 4/0 Penn or Oakum reels with very little drag.

Troll for pelagics, such as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, various types of Billfish, and who knows what else?

All trips come inclusive with everything needed to put your catch together. Any legal fish you catch is yours to keep, and the captain will clean and bag it for you.

I have been fishing my entire life. I grew up riding my bike to the local lake after school to catch Bass and Garfish and teaching all my friends how to fish. My father was an avid fisherman, spear fisherman, and a captain. He taught me everything I know. I went to college to study electrical engineering and started working in the electrical field but after a couple years of doing that, I knew that I did not belong there. I quit my job and went to a captains school to get my license and have been working as a boat captain since. All I ever wanted to do is have a job on the water. Now my dreams have come true. I love being able to teach people that have never really fished. There's nothing like putting a big smile on someone's face after they have reeled up the fish of a lifetime. Tight lines, Capt. Chris.
