Monster Shark Trip

NEW
31 ft 1 - 6 People $$

This trip is fishing for monsters. The targeted species are Cubera Snapper, Goliath Grouper and Sharks. This is the ultimate big game trip next to Sword fishing which I offer as a day trip. This trip is about focussing on catching huge fish hanging around ship wrecks. The bait consists of whole fish with the average bait weighing around 5 pounds. The gear used are big game set ups, butt rods, 50 or 80 Penn International 2 speeds spooled with 100 lb braided line, followed by 600 lb test leader to 400 lb wire leader, ending with two giant 18/0 hooks. The trip is aboard, Posiedon, my new 36’ Yellowfin center console. This boat is the ultimate in offshore, big game boats. Powered with triple 275 hp Mercury Verados, it is very fast and handles like a Lamborgini. Yellowfin is hands down the sexiest center console ever made and they haven’t changed the hull design in over a decade. The sexy hull design pushes water away from the boat making it very dry as water rarely ever comes over the rail. The hull design also provides a stable base for handling the roughest Seas. The tricked out lighting includes 6 blue underwater lights making it epic for night fishing. The brand new computer systems consists of 2 completely independent systems. The first is a 12” Garmin chart plotter with radar, GPS and a fish finder that will tell you what type of fish it is at 2000’ deep! The second system is a 12” Raymarine chart plotter with 4’ open array radar, GPS, adaptive autopilot and fish finder with side scan sonar. The Fusion BT sound system will keep the tunes and good times going. There is a head on the boat for girls and emergencies. Captain BrYan has thousands of marked fishing spots on the computers and is offshore at night about 3-5 times a week. His extensive knowledge of the Ocean, Haulover Inlet and the Intercostal Water Ways will keep you safe in any situation. The Miami Beach skyline is epic at night from a boat. There aren’t too many places in the World where you can deep Sea fish a couple miles from shore and see such a beautiful city scene. Fishing for monsters, offshore, at night in the open Ocean while enjoying the beautiful view of Miami is something all fisher persons must experience. Captain BrYan has everything you need, just bring your food and drinks, beer and glass bottles are perfectly fine too! There will be bottled waters in a cooler with ice for you on the boat. Usually Sharks are catch and release with the average fish weighing over 300 lbs. If you want to harvest a Shark that is legal, then please let Captain BrYan know prior to the day of the trip. Shark cleaning fees start at $50 and go up depending on size. Goliath Grouper is catch and release only, unless you have won a tag from FWC in the annual drawing. If you have one of these tags, please let Captain BrYan know when you book the trip. Cubera Snapper are delicious and can be harvested. Complimentary cleaning for Cuberas under 20lbs, fish over 20 lbs are $25 each to be cleaned. Vacuum packing service is provided for an additional fee to be determined depending on size of catch. This trip is for everyone, especially children and beginners! Read More

    Experience of a Lifetime! You know when you book an Air&BnB or an excursion and you have a slight apprehension due to the uncertainty of what the host guarantees? I will tell you this upfront, book with confidence. Let me explain… I’m going to do my best, but to capture the essence of what we experienced, in simple written word, is nearly an impossible task. Our guided fishing trip really started out like any other excursion. We met early morning, dockside at the “Bait House”. The host gave very clear and concise directions to our link up, what to expect and recommendations on what to bring along. The day before our trip, the staff reached out directly to ensure everyone was on the same page. We had (6) in our party. (3) adults and (3) kids. We packed our own lunches, drinks, adult beverages and snacks. This kept the guides fully engaged on fishing and not preoccupied preparing some spoiled kids’ lunch on the water. We also packed along warming layers and rain/wind gear. Our cadre of guides consisted of a captain/primary guide (Luke) and deckhand/assistant guide (Ben). Both were very cordial, professional and entertaining with their banter and dialogue. The boat was a 33’, fiberglass, Suzuki twin-engine, center console workhorse that appeared to be specifically designed for guided fishing. The live-well was fully packed with ice to preserve our harvested fish. (3) large bean bags were provided to lounge on while underway. The boat had been fitted with modern electronics for navigation, communication and fishing. Very nice, reliable, comfortable and safe vessel. Upon boarding we got a quick brief and were given ample storage space for all the gear we brought. This was key as everything must be stowed while underway. Our initial boat ride was 24 miles off the shore of Clearwater, FL. The ride was teeming with wildlife. As the sun came up, the city skyline disappeared into the horizon until you couldn’t see anything but ocean in every direction. It was magnificent. From start to finish, our guides were very organized on the boat. Gear, tackle, cabin, live bait, ect. all well organized and serviceable. As situations changed, they communicated clearly what they needed from us. Personnel management to balance the vessel and alleviate excessive listing, along with keeping the deck open to allow freedom of movement was well executed. The equipment provided was better than adequate. All of the gear was well maintained and prepped for use. From rigging and baiting to removing the fish and cleaning/prep, the guides handled every aspect of the equipment very well. My wife wanted to accomplish (2) things. She wanted to harvest fish for our family dinner that night, and catch the biggest fish. Both were achieved. We caught A LOT of fish. We began fishing for large Amber Jack, however the guide identified that the bite was slow so we shifted gears to catch our daily harvest. We slammed a bunch of amazing fish. Porgy, Hogfish, Red Snapper, Grunt and others. We also caught some fun interesting fish like: Lizard fish, Remora (suction cup fish) and blow fish. Some were even reused as bait for the huge Amber Jack we caught later in the day. After catching plenty of fish for dinner, we moved back to our original location for another run at the large Amber Jack (AJ); an artificial reef of an intentionally sunken ship. Fishing in about 80’ of water, we quickly hooked into our first AJ. After locating the targeted species, the guides quickly switched gears in an epic display of professionalism and mastery of their craft in order to draw out the largest AJs. The communication between the guides and their actions was impeccable. One man on the rod, the other in full support. As the guide asked for a certain type/color of bait fish, the other pulled it from the livewell and began to toss the same baitfish overboard. When that particular bait was unsuccessful, they moved onto another type. This was system repeated several times until they found the right bait. It was really cool to see. Very fast, deliberate and accurate fishing. Once we had the right bait, it was like the AJs were “switched on”. Shortly we were pulling monster AJs in the boat. Huge fish the size of both of a grown man’s legs. After an exciting run of pulling in several huge AJs, we were down to our last baitfish. What I’m about to tell you just can’t really capture how awesome this last cast truly was. Now, earlier in the day we had an AJ get bit by a shark. We got it in the boat and it had some teeth marks and a gushing blood. It was crazy cool. However, this last cast set into motion a series of events that we’ll certainly remember for the rest of our lives. The line was cast and immediately hooked up. My wife was fighting this monster AJ (Yes, the biggest fish of the day) for several minutes. As the AJ was retrieved and became closer to the boat (so close we could see it) two HUGE sharks swam right to it taking a gigantic bite out of the AJ. When I say “bite” I mean a literal shark-head-shaped-bite. A cartoonish bite. Like, imagine what you would see on a Saturday morning cartoon. The bite was so clean and the exact round shape of the jaws of a shark. It was remarkable. As it got up to the boat, guide Ben (in an epic display of reluctant courage mind you) reached down and pulled up this AJ. Even the pictures just don’t do this experience justice. My wife, grabbed this fish holding it right in the bitten area like a savage. She was so excited! We were all excited. As we unhooked the AJ, the guides tossed it back out and a full-on shark feeding frenzy erupted. Multiple sharks attacking this AJ in just the most amazingly violent display. This was straight up, no BS, some National Geographic sh!t. When the AJ was pulled in, nothing remained but a huge sardine head. The Gulf gave us a show we’ll never forget and it was all due to the expertise, fast thinking and relentless efforts of our guides. As if our experience wasn’t enough, our ride back was filled with dolphins, sea turtles and a host of other incredible wildlife. The guides cleaned and prepared all of our harvested fish. They even labeled them by name so we knew what types they were. Our family loves the outdoors, and we have a saying when we venture out, “Don’t expect anything”. The fishing trip that day took everyone by surprise as to how incredible it unfolded. If you are looking for an amazing experience on the water, book with confidence because we had the experience of a lifetime.

    Captain Nick tried his best but the fish just weren't biting. Nick was very nice and knowledgeable we just wish we caught more fish.

    Had a most excellent time on Blue Magic. We were scheduled for an offshore trip but wind and waves caused us to cancel this trip. However, we rescheduled for later in the day for a tarpon fishing excursion. This was a blast ! We saw sharks up close and landed several yellow jacks which gave us a good fight before being returned to the water. After trying and trying (never give up) we snagged a good sized tarpon. After a good fight which included multiple boat maneuvers it was brought to the side of the boat before being cut loose to fight another day. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with the captain and first mate. Both were very attentive to us, making sure that our hooks were still baited and that we had all the help required for landing and documenting our catches before returning them to the water. A great time was had by all! The boat was immaculate and we had no issues if any sort.

    We had an outstanding fishing trip with Captain Jack, and caught our target species at the first location of the day. In my experience this is rare. The snook were big, hungry, and plentiful. My son and his friend were astounded by the 30 inch snook's ability to fight. We had a great time, and I highly recommend Jack.

    We had a great full day trip with Captain Chris. Chris really helped my wife with his patience and encouragement fight big fish in deep water and use lighter tackle at the shallower wreck. She landed nice yellowtail, yellow jack, mackerel and amberjack. Chris worked hard all day keeping us in fish and rigged as the shark tax was high though the morning. At the end of the day we got great local restaurant recommendations and tips on cooking our catch. Loved the boat playlist! Highly recommend and hope to come back to fish with Chris again.

    Great day on the water with an awesome captain. Immaculate boat and equipment. We didn’t land any tarpan but we hooked a few and saw many. Would highly recommend this charter!

    We were scheduled to go off shore but the winds and waves were too high for it to be enjoyable. We cancelled the off shore trip and regrouped later in the afternoon for several hours of tarpon fishing. Had a great time ! Caught one big tarpon and several yellow jacks which were also fun to bring in. My shoulders hurt the next day! Steve and his first mate were very friendly and made sure that I had a good experience by helping me bait my hooks and take off my fish. We even had a queen conch come up hooked on a point of our anchor (which we returned to her watery bed). Would heartily recommend taking a trip with Steve and the crew of Blue Magic.
