Whether you're an offshore angler looking to add some species to your collection, or a vacationer looking for a great experience on the deep blue, this trip is perfect for you! Captain Gil is an expert when it comes to deepwater bottomfishing and "deep dropping" and will make sure you get hooked up on some cool species, including Snowy Grouper and Tilefish.

One of the many great things about fishing in Fort Pierce, FL is that you can access this deep water just a short distance from the harbor! With the banks so close to shore and the rich waters of the Gulf Stream behind you, you'll spend more time fishing and less time getting out there.
Once you're over the prime fishing grounds, you'll be dropping cut bait down to the ocean floor, where it will attract bites from cruising bottomfish. Once they're on, it's all you! You'll haul them up to the surface, where Captain Gil has iceboxes waiting to keep them fresh till you get back to the dock.
You'll be fishing aboard Gil's 40' Tiara sportfisher, a beautiful boat designed to be a fishing machine. She features all kinds of gear and amenities, including a flybridge, full cabin, live wells for bait, ice boxes, and more! With this gear and Captain Gil's expertise, you'll be set up for an amazing day and a full cooler when you're finished.
Captain Gil has been on the water since the day he could walk. He started his career at the age of 14, working as a mate on the waters of the Delaware Bay fishing for Trout, Stripers and Flounder. However, soon the blue water called his name and he began working as a mate on the offshore canyon boats running out of Indian River Inlet. He soaked in the vast knowledge of some of the best captains on the East Coast while chasing Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Swordfish....Read More
A few years later, Captain Gil took matters into his own hands and started his own charter service, running out of Delaware and eventually Port Saint Lucie and Fort Pierce, Florida. He put the knowledge that he had learned over the years to good use, and has become one of the best on the East Coast of the United States. Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin and Wahoo are what he knows and he excels in catching these fish. Captain Gil is one of the most aggressive and competitive fishermen on the East Coast of Florida, and he ensures that his clients have enjoyable trips and catch a bunch!

We had a very positive experience with Cap’n Gil. This Man and Mate have a passion for fishing and it is very obvious. We fished in very challenging Summer conditions along with a New Moon, yet we were the only boat at the docks to have quality fish. I will ...Read More fish with him again given the opportunity.

Captain Gill was top notch. He personally cares about catching fish. Not a captain that just want to put his time in. I would/will go fishing with him again. Also his mate Hunter was great. He was on his game and socialable at the same time. Don’t hesitate book this ...Read More charter.

Capt. Gil and his mate Hunter provided an excellent day for our group. They worked hard to put us on fish and for us to have an enjoyable experience. It is highly recommended for anyone - novice or pro alike - to fish with Capt Gil and Hunter.
