What types of black seabass fishing charters are common in Florida?

Deep Sea fishing is the most popular type of fishing for black seabass in Florida as well as nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and flats fishing.

The most common fishing techniques in Florida are bottom fishing, live bait fishing, and light tackle fishing but cut bait fishing and artificial lure fishing are popular as well.

How much do Florida black seabass fishing charters cost?

Prices for black seabass in Florida can range anywhere from about $550 to $1,672, but the average price for a half day trip for black seabass in Florida is $675. The average price for a full day trip for black seabass in Florida is $1,163.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.
