What are Palm Island Offshore Fishing Charters known for?

The Gulf of Mexico & the surrounding areas are scattered with offshore wrecks, reefs & ledges that are home to dozens of species of fish. Snapper, grouper, mackerel, amberjack, tuna, kingfish & cobia are some of the common species caught on these fishing trips. Numbers of fish caught regularly top 100 on our offshore fishing trips, providing non-stop fun for all.

What other species will we catch on our Palm Island Offshore Fishing Charter?

Jack, grunts, blackfin tuna & American Red Snapper or the occasional Mahi can be caught on our Palm Island Offshore charters.

All of these species are targeted with great confidence throughout most of the year. They provide fun for all ages and skill levels.

Bait & Tackle

Medium & heavy spinning & conventional tackle with artificial lures, live, or cut bait.

Boca Grande fishing charters require tackle that not only helps you hook the fish but also helps you to successfully land your catch. Fin-Nor reels matched with custom rods are up to the task and are the best in the industry. They are spooled with Power Pro braid & Seaguar flourocarbon leader to make the the ultimate offshore rigs.

**Remember that communication is the key to a successful fishing trip. Make sure that Captain Hutch knows your expectations so that he can make sure that those become a reality. Please remember that the availablity of species is dependent on many different factors throughout the year and that the most fish will be caught on your trip if we target the species that is biting at that time.
