Summersalt Fishing Charters

The Gulf of Mexico is known worldwide to be one of the best places to fish, ever. However, there’s a lot of water to cover while going after the big fish. Luckily, Summersalt Fishing Charters has quite the beast to ride around with – you’ll be at the hottest fishing grounds in no time!

The vessel you’ll use is a 40’ Ronin, offshore fishing boat extraordinaire. She can hold up to 6 anglers fishing in absolute comfort. The power behind her is quite something, twin Caterpillars with 400 HP each. Don’t lose any sleep over boat amenities, she’s fully equipped with tuna tubes, outriggers, live bait wells, and a state-of-the-art electronics and navigation system.

Comforts aren’t lost either, you can rest in the onboard bed, use the fully outfitted kitchen, or (if needed) the full-head bathroom. A flybridge is available as well, for sight-fishing and just plain, old enjoying the view.

Captain Steven Allen will be your guide and instructor on this charter. With him by your side, you’ll use light and heavy tackle to spin, jig, pop, drift or bottom fish, as well as troll. The species you’ll go after are all well known, Mahi Mahi, Red Snappers, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Black and Red Groupers, and others you may run across.

There’s no minimum age for children on board Summersalt Fishing Charters, but the captain recommends parents with children under 5 to contact him prior to booking. Catch cleaning and filleting is included in the price, though gratuity for the crew is always appreciated. Customers should bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and a waterproof camera.
