(Morning or Afternoon) Focusing on inshore or south drop offshore fishing. Targeting a large variety of species including kingfish, barracuda, blackfin tuna, bonito, mackerel, tarpon, sharks, sailfish, mahi-mahi, jacks, snappers, groupers and other bottom fish. On the south drop we can also catch wahoo, yellowfin tuna, white and blue marlin along with the other fish listed. This is a great way to introduce kids and adults into the world of offshore fishing since the closest area on the drop off is only about 7miles out! Inshore trips we can generaly find calmer conditions for those who maybe a little less adventuresome.

We knew from our very first contact that this was a professional organization. We were contacted the night before our trip and given instructions on what to bring and where to meet. We were then met at the dock promptly and shoved off. After transiting about 30 min. We set lines in the water. We got our first bite within literally 5 minutes. Our captain, Bryan, could not have done another thing to make us more comfortable and to give us a better experience. This is a top notch professional group with excellent experience and equipment. I have absolutely no hesitation in giving them my very highest recommendation. In a word, this excursion was nothing short of AWESOME!! Michael and Deborah Holum McKinney, Texas
