Nearshore Fishing Charters

We would love to take you on a

Nearshore Fishing Charter!

For all fishing trips all tackle, licensing and bait is provided!  Trips are available in 4, 6, and eight hour durations!  Custom trip combinations available as well!

Our nearshore fishing includes up to nine miles off the coast line.  Our Gulf of Mexico is not very deep in our nearshore area,  and believe it or not nine miles out our water is about 45ft deep.  That bing said, we still have a lot of fun to be had nearshore!

Any where from a mile out and beyound,  we have submerged structure, wrecks, and artificial reefs scattered about!  We anchor on top of the various structure while we fish.  Dropping bait to the bottom can produce multiple snapper species,  along with many other colorful reef fish.  While anchored up out there it is also possible to fish different parts of the water column for different species.  Barracuda, Mackerel, Cobia, or even a handful of shark species can sometimes be found circling around our near shore structure. 

As far as taking fish back to eat, catching enough to make a meal or two can be a reasonable goal in our Nearshore waters.  If the bite and the correct species are cooperating,  Captain. Mark can fillet the catch for you and prepare it in a zip lock bag.

Due to wind and waves, sometimes nearshore fishing trips may not be possible. (*disclaimer)
