Overnight Fishing Charters

The fight is on for this lucky angler!
We are overnight trips at its best! We built our core business on two day fishing trips and over the years and have grown our business into one of the most respected and well known guide services in the entire Gulf of Mexico. We can carry a maximum of 10 passengers on these overnight fishing charters but average just 6 to 8 passenger as our clients have come to enjoy all of the room and attention.
Flexibility in Angling Adventures
Our charter boat was custom built from the keel up for these long and exciting fishing adventures. She is 65 feet long and 20 feet wide. Complete with Ice-makers, water-maker and is ready to serve you and your group. We have all new gear waiting for you and your group and our tackle will handle the largest of the game fish with no problem. We invest tens of thousands of dollars each year to insure you catch a lot of fish.
The overnighter trip departs at 6 am and starts with generally some bait fishing for cigar minnows and herring and then we will start breakfast which is generally biscuits, eggs and sausage as we ride out to the fish bottom fishing stop of the day. The ride to the first spot may vary from trip to trip but it is just an effort to get us set up in a direction to the offshore grounds. While we are riding we will generally get the boston butt or lunch fixings slow cooking on the grill to be sure they are ready by lunch time.
Once we arrive to the bottom fish grounds we will fish a good bit for seasonal fish like red snapper, grouper, amberjack and triggerfish. (most every fish has a seasonal and bag limit on them) then once this part of the trip is over we will put the hi-speed wahoo lines in as we troll our way out to the deep water production rigs to spend the remainder of our time fishing for dolphin, wahoo, yellowfin and black fin tuna. On occasion we catch fish like blue, white marlin and swordfish but they are not quite as common the others.
Once we get in the tuna mode around dark most of the time we will hang in there with and continue fishing up through the night if need be to help ensure your sucess on our fishing trip. If we are still not done by the next morening we will continue to fish at day light and then work our way back to the dock sometime around lunch or there after,
These extended trips also allow you to stop and fish around the oil rigs for amberjack and will sometimes afford us the time to stop and do some deep drop fishing for species of deep water grouper and other unique species such as Scorpion Fish, Golden Tile fish and Long Tail Bass.
