Trek Description

Fishing near the shore while out on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico gives you a ton of flexibility to experience a fun-filled adventure. While you are out on a Gulf fishing trip, you will be within sight of land the whole time! Enjoy fishing right off of the beautiful Gulf beaches that line Florida’s coast, or fish on underwater wrecks a bit further out. You’ll have the chance to catch large and small fish alike out on a fishing trip in the Gulf. Species like Cobia, Grouper, Snapper and Mackerel can be found while bottom fishing; Barracuda, King Fish, Mahi-Mahi and more can be caught trolling the beaches.

Fishing in the Gulf is diverse, so anglers are almost guaranteed a great time out on the water. Your Captain will always have an adventure planned, so you can comfortably sit back and enjoy the boat ride out to prime locations. Your Captain is there to assist with every aspect of the trip, including providing all gear and equipment necessary for your Gulf fishing charter. He will also take time to teach any of those that want to learn about the basics of fishing. Looking for a specific species? Our vetted Captains are skilled at putting those trips together, as well.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the amazing creatures you might see along the way. Dolphins, turtles, manatees, osprey, and pelicans might make an appearance. If you are really lucky, you may even see a whale shark! If you’re not ready for deep sea, but want to catch more variety of fish, a Gulf fishing charter is for you!
