We offer trolling & bottom fishing trips ranging from half-day to full-day trips. No license or special gear is needed, as we provide the required equipment and licenses to make your fishing trip worry free!
When trolling, the boat moves at a steady pace through the water with multiple lines of various lengths astern. The deckhand handles setting the line, baiting the hooks, and lands the fish once you have reeled them in! Common species caught while trolling are King and Spanish Mackerel, Bonita, and Mahi Mahi.
Bottom fishing involves going 10-40 miles offshore, depending upon the length of trip, and dropping lines down to the gulf floor, usually while above reefs, wrecks, or other fish habitats. Common species caught while bottom fishing include Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Amberjack, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, among many other species.
You should bring food & drink (a cooler is allowed), sunglasses & sunscreen if needed, as well as an empty cooler for your catches. We provide the necessary fishing equipment for your trip.
You are not required to have a fishing license. We carry all the proper licensing, so you don't have to!
Yes, alcohol is allowed on the boat.
As long as the weather will not pose a threat to any passengers, the trip will still continue.
In the event a trip is cancelled due to the weather, the trip can be rescheduled or a refund will be issued to the responsible party.
