Luckily, here in SE Florida, the gulf-stream runs very close to shore, so its only a 10-20 minute ride to fishing grounds and in most cases, you’re fishing within 20 minutes of leaving the dock.
Can we eat what we catch?
Want to eat the fish you catch? If you catch edible fish that you’d like to take to eat, we will carefully fillet, clean and de-bone your catch and seal it in Zip-lock bags and ice so you can take it home or bring it to the marina’s restaurant and have them cook your catch. (NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE)
Can I mount a fish? Do I have to kill it to mount it?
We are partnered with a taxidermy service that can create an exact fiberglass mounted replica of your catch without killing or keeping the fish. We simply, measure the fish, and send the dimensions and photo to the taxidermist. They’ll create an exact replica and the airbrush artists will paint the trophy to look like your catch! Your fish will arrive 20-30 days from the time of your trip. Prices vary based on size of fish. Ask your Captain if you would like information.
What’s Included? And what do I need to bring?
We provide everything needed for fishing- licenses, tackle, rods and all the gear needed. Our coolers will be stocked with ice. All you need to bring are food, drinks and sun protection. We recommend a waterproof jacket or poncho even if rain is not in the forecast.
What kind of fishing is this?
This is PURE Sport-fishing, we are not a “drift boat” or “head boat”. We specialize in light tackle live bait fishing for game fish (Keep in mind you don’t need any fishing experience to enjoy the trip, our skilled captain and mate(s) do all the work and all you have to do is fight the fish, and enjoy the battle) If you’re an experienced angler and want the maximum amount of involvement just let us know.
Our Angler Management and Angler Management 2.0 Vessels are fully sponsored and will have all the latest and greatest reels from quality manufactures, mounted on 20# custom rods built exclusively for our fishery and needs. Nothing will ever be old, rusted/corroded or abused!

ADDITIONAL FISHING INFO
Kite Fishing – if you haven’t kite fished yet, you need to try it, it’s the deadliest technique ever created. We will fly 1 or 2 kites ahead of the boat, each kite has 3 spacers on it and 3 rods will deploy 3 live baits from each kite right at the surface. It’s a deadly way to fish in front of the drift and the surface baits create an epic scene where fish will smash and crash the bait, chasing it around and putting on an awesome show. We catch multiple fish with this technique, sometimes as many has 10 at once. Kite fishing is our specialty… and passion.
Trolling with Artificial / Dead Bait – An industry standard where several lines are pulled behind the boat with a combination of lures and dead or “strip-cut” bait at about 5-8 MPH.
Trolling with Live bait – Deadly method to catch a large variety of game fish where a spread of live baits are slowly trolled around behind the boat at different depths.
Drift Fishing (Reef, Wreck fishing) – The boat is turned off and we will drift over reefs, wrecks and ledges, dropping and free lining live and dead bait or vertical jigs to trigger bites. We can also use live Shrimp or live Mullet, Pin-fish, and Pilchards for inshore live bait fishing around the inlet mouths, spillways and beaches.
How much is enough? How much is too much? The “industry standard” is typically 20% and up depending on the level of service.
Fishing Charters – No worries, if you have to cancel, its fine but please give us the respect of calling 24 hours before as the worst case. If you elect to go in early due to sea-sickness you may also select to fish the calm waters inshore. Any collected deposits are refunded as long as you cancel outside of 72 hours. Deposits may also be applied to any future trips.
Kayak Charters – We collect a 50% deposit for kayak fishing reservations. The balance due is payable the day of your trip. Cancellations must be made 72 hours before scheduled trip to receive a full deposit refund. Late arrivals (More than 1 hour late) and no shows will forfeit their deposit. Bad Weather? Unless you hear otherwise from Capt. Brian, we will be at the launch location at the scheduled time. Should threatening weather (lightning and/or Severe winds) force us to cancel your trip you will have the option to reschedule at that time. Your deposit is good for 6 months. After 6 months your deposit will be forfeited.
If you drop a rod/reel overboard or lose it while fighting a fish or during the landing a fish, it’s your responsibility to cover the retail costs of a new setup immediately following the trip, at $450.00.
