This 8-hour trip allows you to fish toll the deep-water for delicious and hard fighting fish like Wahoo, King Mackerel, Cobia, Red Snapper and much more! Being out in deeper water allows you to bottom fish for amberjack and several types of grouper as well. But an 8-hour trip rarely allows time to do both trolling and deep water bottom fishing for long. If you're looking to do both in one day, Captain JW would recommend his 10-hour trip at least.
Everything is provided by Captain JW and his Crew From rods and tackle to expert guidance and tips. All the deckhands and responsible crew members tirelessly work around the clock to ensure that you as guests are accompanied by professionalism and are comfortable on the boat while catching your favorite fish. All deckhands will help you with rigging your lines, baiting your hook, teaching those with less experience proper fishing techniques, offering those who may get sick small comforts, cleaning your fish, and so much more. Your gratuity is how they get paid, so please show them, love, if you are happy or satisfied with the service they provided you!
Captain JW grew up in South Texas, and has always enjoyed fishing out on the water, and he enjoys getting to share this love of fishing with others. One of his firm beliefs is that you can't catch a fish if your hook isn't in the water... Thus he works hard to make sure you always have a line out! Whether that's trolling out to your destination, bottom fishing, site-casting, jigging, or any manner of fishing. If the method catches fish, Captain JW knows how to do it!
