Night time charters are available to fish during prime feeding for some species.

  • Offshore fishing: Beyond the reef and into the blue water of the Atlantic waters, pelagic schools of dolphin, king mackeral, sailfish, tripletail and wahoo are on the hunt for smaller bait fish to call lunch. Capt. Marcus gives them what they are looking for while trolling offshore.
