Offshore Fishing Charters
The Offshore Fishing Charter is for our Guests that want an adventure on the Big Water looking for a chance to land a fish of a lifetime. The L & T at 28 feet with twin 200 hp engines is a solid offshore platform. The Captain monitors the weather/wind & wave/swell forecast for safety and comfort. Typically, the decision to confirm a trip happens with-in 48 hours and the final Go No Go decision will be made at the dock. On this trip, our Guests are expected to actively participate in helping the Captain. You will be instructed how to set the lines in the water, keep lines clear of debris and retrieve lines when we are fighting a fish. When the fishing is hot, you will have earned every fish landed and put on ice.
Cost is $2,000 per charter for Offshore Fishing - May 1st to October 31st

We use a mix of Shimano TLD (30 & 50) Reels all spooled with 80lb test braided line with 100 yards of Momoi Topshot. We use this equipment for both trolling and chunking. When trolling we typically set up 7 rods using a mix of Artificial Baits (Spreader Bars, Squid Daisy Chains, Birds, Flippy Floppies) and Ballyhoo rigged on Chutes or just naked on the hook. When chunking our lines will be set at different depths with live or cut bait on circle hooks. Depending upon the bite we will either drop anchor or drift while making a chum/chunk slick. If the bite is on we will be busy working hard to clear lines and be prepared to handle the leader to put the fish in position to be gaffed. If we are lucky and run into structure holding Mahi we will switch over to mix of lighter spinning and conventional reels and lighter tackle to drift baits into the structure. From past experiences when the fishing is hot you will be busy and tired at the end of the day.
