We travel to the edges of the clear waters of the Gulf Stream to troll for some of the most impressive sportfish in the ocean. Knowing when and where to fish and using the right bait and tackle to catch them is always the challenge, but if they are out there – you will soon have a fish on line.

  • Sailfish
  • Marlin
  • Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) – Bull Dolphin & Schoolers
  • Blackfin Tuna
  • Yellowfin Tuna
  • Wahoo
  • King Mackerel – (Kingfish)
  • Cobia
  • Swordfish

Finding the better parts of the reef to fish usually pays off with a great catch. We hunt for fish like large groupers, mutton snapper, yellowtail, barracuda, and other species that enjoy coral reefs as home. These fish seek the shelter of the coral reefs and sunken vessels as their underwater homes. These same underwater havens offer loads bait fish, that also attract many sportfish of all sizes.

  • Grouper
  • Mutton Snapper
  • Yellowtail Snapper
  • Cubera Snapper
  • Mangrove Snapper
  • Kingfish
  • Spanish and Cero Mackerel
  • Cobia
  • Hogfish
  • Amberjack
  • Baracuda
