GCIS On-Line Tourism Guide - Salt Water Fishing

The Gulf Coast offers many fun and exciting things to do on of course is Deep Sea fishing. Come visit the coast and fish, while you're here check out the other things the Gulf Coast offers such as world class golf courses and Las Vegas style gaming.

You may have fished in other places, but few vacation spots if any, offer the friendliness, variety, and value of a fishing adventure for families, friends, and companies off the Coast and barrier islands.

Our Deep Sea fishing charter boats specialize year round in both bottom fishing and trolling. They routinely take large catches of King and Spanish mackerel, snapper, jack, grouper, lemon-fish and sharks. In addition, many other sport fish are commonly caught. Your catch will generally be cleaned and dressed for a nominal fee.

A full day of fishing usually last up to eight hours with departure times at 6:00- 7:00a.m. Overnight and 1/2 day trips are available. The trips usually consist of four to six people with the average prices for a full day $400.00; 1/2 day trip-$285.00(up to six people). Prices may vary. For larger groups several boats may operate together. Ice, bait and tackle are provided for your convenience.

All the fish you will be reeling will work up an appetite. The chartering party usually provides food and beverages for itself, the captain and the mate(s), but special arragements may be made with most captains to supply the food and beverages for an additional fee.

Generally captains have no restrictions prohibiting consumption of alcohol on vessels, but for the safety of you and others, alcohol abuse is prohibited.

Dressing for the trip. Soft soled deck shoes are recommended. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreen are a must. During the spring, fall and winter, wear warm clothing to protect yourself from chilling winds. During the summer months, adequate clothing is needed to protect you from the sun.

If you are inclined toward motion sickness or if you are taking children on the trip, one of the many drug store remedies will be helpful if taken before departure.

To avoid disappointment, boats should be reserved in advance, especially for holiday or weekend trips. Reservations made the evening before may be sufficient for weekday trips.

A saltwater license is required, however many charter boats have licenses to cover you while fishing aboard their vessels.
