... Read More first aid and safety equipment, this sportfishing boat is a great base for a half and 3/4 day fishing trips. Praised for its excellent ride, the boat will offer a smooth and stable trip out to your fishing destination.
Embark on an all day 10-12 hour adventure of true sportfishing on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. For these trips you can expect to troll your way offshore hoping for a Wahoo or Mahi bite on while you venture further offshore. Once you're a ways out there Captain Seth will get you rigged up to hit the seafloor with live or cut bait up to 500ft below for Snapper and Amberjack. Check the bite in the Gulf for Red Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, and who knows what else? If it swims and can bite a hook, the crew will catch it. It’s as simple as that!
If you have a fishing technique you would like to try, just let your captain know. You will be provided with licenses, bait, tackle, and ice. If you have a favorite rod and reel, feel free to bring it.
The fish cleaning service and a tip for the deckhand are not included in the price

We went out on the Rip Current on Tuesday which was originally scheduled for Monday but the weather didn’t cooperate and we were thankful that captain Seth Wilson suggested going out the next day. The weather was perfect and he put us on the snapper. We had a big

We had a great trip. Captain Jerry & Deckhand Fisher were amazing. They put us on the fish & helped this momma out. Will definitely use them again.
My family and I had a great experience. We caught a mess of fish. The captain and deck hand were great. I will definitely go out with them again.
We had an awesome time with Captain Seth and Gauge. Fishing started off a little slow but that’s fishing. Captain Seth keep us moving till the bite picked up and we caught a good number of fish.
Great trip. Caught a large number of fish and had plenty of help from their team. Seth was very responsive with calls before our trip and was nothing but helpful. I 100% recommend this guide service. Also, had 7 people in my group and there was still plenty of room

8 family members took a morning 3 hour trip with Captain Seth and crew member Fisher. Weather was sunny, but cool. Trolling did not result in fish, but the bottom fishing was outstanding. Caught 5 different species but mostly Red Snapper. Everybody had big smiles when

I would highly recommend booking with Captain Seth. The boat was well maintained and comfortable. We went out on a 4 hour trolling trip targeting king and Spanish mackerel. The captain let us know you don’t always catch on these trips, but that he’d do everything he could (changing speeds,

Whether we were catching fish or drinking beer, both Seth and Harrison were enjoyable to be around. We ended up catching 2 king mackerels, a Spanish mackerel, and 5 Bonita. I would highly recommend this trip and will definitely book again next time I’m in the area looking for charters. Thanks for a great time Seth and Harrison!
It was a great time for 4 adults and 4 kids ranging from 16-7. We caught a lot of fish and always busy with kids having fun to pull in fish as we were going out to places to drift. Mike and Gage were great to move us to new

Gage was really very excited to help us and did not get frustrated with us at all. Zeke’s Marina was a great place for parking and connecting with charter boat.
Captain and crew were great on the riptide! Air conditioning and a potty was a huge plus for my family. It was a great experience and the memories were priceless.
