INSHORE, INLET & NEARSHORE CHARTERS

INSHORE AND BACKWATERS

Inshore trips are shallow water fish in the bays, rivers and our for redfish (red drum), speckled trout, flounder, bluefish, etc. These trips are typically on my Pathfinder 19′ flats boat. These trips are for a variety of skill levels – from novice to serious fly anglers. Fly fishing for tailing red fish. Chasing drum and trout with artificials are common trips. Two anglers is preferred, three anglers is maximum.

INLET AND NEARSHORE

Inshore and nearshore trips in the 23′ Parker are designed for families and larger groups who want to stay closer to shore. Our “inlet trip” is a perfect half-day trip for families with kids doing easy, fun fishing in the inlets throughout the course of the year. These trips have a MAXIMUM OF FOUR ADULTS although if kids are involved I can tweak this to take up to 5 passengers.

OCEAN AND OFFSHORE CHARTERS – 23′ Parker

For the serious anglers who want to travel aways and “get to the good spots” we specialize trips to the occasion. Fishing offshore is an expensive endeavor for both the guide and the clients, so in order to offer the fairest possible situation, we customize the rate to the individual trip taking into consideration gasoline, etc.

Serious ocean trips come in two flavors – 3/4 day (long half day) and Full days.

Offshore trips are FULL DAYS ONLY and are longer than the normal full day (8-10hrs).

Serious ocean trips are often bottom fishing  and trolling on the nearshore  wrecks and reefs within 20 miles. Fly Fishing for amberjack. King Mackerel fishing. Cobia, etc.

Offshore is for serious bottom fishing (THE GOOD SPOTS) and trolling often outside of 20 miles.
