5 Hour Private Fishing Charter

Get on the water and have some fun......... (6AM or 7AM available!)

Service Description

If you're looking for an introduction to deep-sea fishing, this trip is perfect for you! Our shortest and most beginner-friendly option (available seasonally), this trip will get you around 15-20 miles offshore for some great fishing fun. You will troll to your first fishing spot and during your return to shore (and in between, time permitting), but your main focus will be bottom-fishing. Typically targetting species like Vermillion Snapper (Mingo Snapper), White Snapper, and Porgys, the casual angler can "usually" land these fish with minimal strain (but that doesn't mean you're catching small-fries). Don't be fooled, though- anything can and DOES happen in the Gulf of Mexico! The default departure time for this trip is 6AM, but 7AM is also available! Please just let us know at the time of booking if you would prefer to depart at 7AM. The base price of this fishing trip covers our passenger minimum, up to the first 8 passengers. Each passenger after the 8th is an additional $150. The deposit is only 10% of the base price, and the final balance will be collected on the day of departure. Thank you for your interest in this booking, please let us know if you have any questions. Lets go fishing! Notes: 5 Hour Fishing Trips are not available during Red Snapper season (typically 6/1- 8/15). If you're looking for a 5 hour trip during that time, please go back and select our 6 hour option for availability. A 3% Payment Proccessing fee will apply for all online, credit card, or digital wallet transactions and will be assessed and collected at the dock. No fees apply for payments made with cash/business check. Please remember- deckhands humbly work hard for and graciously accept tips. Customary gratuity is 20% of trip price and can be accepted before or after your trip. Thank you for your generosity!
