The world is your oyster when you book this 10 Hour excursion with Captain Linus. After you meet up with Captain Linus at the dock, you guys can go over your game plan for the day. Whether you and your captain decide to go offshore, stay in nearshore, or hit the reefs will depend on the weather conditions, the tides, and of course your personal preference. You can even talk with your Captain about hitting multiple areas for a trolling/bottom fishing combo. Captain Linus will provide expert advice on what will be fishing the best that day so listen carefully and heed his advice when deciding how you'd like to spend your day. No matter what you and Linus decide, he will help you load up and store whatever you've brought on board, and make sure you're comfortable! After you get settled in one of the many comfy seats, Captain Linus will start up his triplet 300HP Mercury Verados and you will motor out a couple of miles offshore to do some trolling, bottom fishing, and relaxing. Offshore trips usually involve a lot of trolling and target Marlin, Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi). Nearshore trips can include a mix of trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel, and bottom fishing the Reefs for Snapper Species and Black Seabass. Targeting the nearshore Reefs, in particular, can result in Cobia and Amberjack as well! Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Linus will provide you with top-of-the-line rods, reels, tackle, and bait, specific to whatever type of fishing you'd like to do that day, along with a cooler full of ice and water, and all necessary fishing licenses you will need for a successful day out on the water.
