Pelagic Magic Sportfishing

Pelagic Magic Sportfishing takes you around the waters of the Atlantic Ocean where you can sample some of the feistiest game fish and also get a nice meal. Capt. Geoff is a seasoned angler who knows these waters well, and he will take you fishing anywhere.

Trips with Capt. Geoff run year-round and target a variety of species, including Snapper, Mahi, Tuna, Shark, and even Sailfish. You can try numerous techniques including trolling, kite, drift, and bottom fishing.

Capt. Geoff has been a captain for over 30 years and has taken part in tournaments with plenty of success. He has been a diver and angler his whole life and his expertise will surely be of help when going after game fish. Pelagic Magic are also members of the Ande Monofilament and Engel Cooler pro teams.

You will be fishing aboard a 53’ Buddy Davis custom boat, great for offshore sport fishing. The vessel is powered by twin 825 HP Detroit Diesel engine and can take up to six anglers. This big boat has plenty of room for anglers onboard and comes equipped with a set of reliable navigational gear, including GPS and a fishfinder. The boat features a toilet, kitchen, a live well, A/C, a multimedia system, an ice box, and outriggers. This is the vessel that can cater to seasoned anglers but also novice fishermen looking for safety and comfort.

Captain Geoff will supply all the fishing gear, mostly by Penn, as well as lures and licenses. Live bait is optional, though, when chosen, its cost is paid directly to the live bait boat the day of the charter in cash, generally between $60-$120, depending on species requested (goggle eyes or pilchards usually). The charter provides all other baits at no additional cost – typically ballyhoo, squid, sardines, or bonita.

There will be snacks and drinks onboard on all trips. The captain can also organize catering on full day trips. Get your friends and family and make sure to book on time. You don’t want to miss a ride aboard Pelagic Magic!
