Capacity:

Max 4 guests (base trip price includes 4 guests)

Description:

This a full day 10 - 12 hour (It is listed for 10 hours but depending on the bite and weather I have no problem with 12 hours at no additional charge) 40 to 50 miles offshore for red grouper and red snapper (seasonal). On these trips you never know what we may catch! We have caught king fish, sailfish, blackfin tuna, amber jacks, mangrove snapper, vermillion and lanes. While I do not have an age limit it is recommend that these anglers have been offshore before and a little experience bottom fishing. I love these trips!!
