Family Fishing Charters
4 hour, 5 hour and 6 hour fishing charters are ideal for families wanting to make memories together that will last a lifetime. A 4 hour near shore trolling charter is the perfect duration for small families with young children. King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bonita and Redfish are typically what are targeted on a 4 hour trip. A 6 hour, half day family fishing charter will travel farther offshore where bottom fishing, or deep sea fishing, will be the means of fishing. Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Black Snapper, Lane Snapper, Triggerfish, King Mackerel and Cobia are the main targeted species. A family can expect two hours or less of a ride out to the fishing grounds, two hours or more time spent fishing and two hours or less of a ride back to port. A 5 hour half day trip is a combination of bottom fishing and trolling. This is a great option for families that are wanting to go for the first time and are not sure what to expect. If your priority is take home as much fish as possible, please consider an 8 hour charter or longer. Please note, the availability of each species for harvest is dependent on federal and state regulations.
