Guided Gheenoe Fishing:
Fish the "no motor zones" in remote areas that are accessible by canoe only.
These places receive light fishing pressure from other anglers so the
fishing is typically excellent. Snook, redfish, tarpon, and sea trout are
common in these waters. These trips are tailored to the experience,
abilities, and requests of the client, so please call for pricing. Space is
limited to one angler.
Fish for a full or 3/4 or 1/2 day in an 18-foot Hell's Bay Skiff equipped to
handle all possible fishing challenges in the area. The unparalleled
maneuverability and shallow draft of this vessel allows our charters to
access areas that are off limits to other watercraft. Safety is our main
concern aboard the skiff, and we are equipped with the latest communications
gear, from VHF radios to mobile satellite phones. Tackle, bait, and other
equipment are also provided.
Near-Shore / OffShore:
A fishing trip on a deep-vee 21-foot boat to a Gulf of Mexico shipwreck is
unforgettable. Enormous Goliath grouper will test your strength and stamina.
You can also expect to find lots of free-leaping tarpon, loggerhead turtles,
and emerald green water. Permit, cobia, tripletail and mackerel are
plentiful as well.
