Experience offshore fishing like never before with Reel Lucky Fishing Charters! Join Captain Joseph, who grew up fishing with his father. He has been guiding fishing trips for decades and has lots of knowledge to share. This charter is federally permitted to fish in federal waters aka past 9 miles for the big fish of a lifetime.

This 35’ Marlago vessel by Jefferson Yachts was based on the original 33’ Cigarette wide body by legendary Don Aranow with a pad hull and step transom added. She’ll get you offshore fast, comfortable, and with style. The boat has Garmin and Simrad electronics, including satellite radio, satellite weather, 14 speaker stereo system with 1000 watt JL Audio, Bluetooth, fish mapping, radar autopilot, etc.

There’s enough room for 6 guests to start this adventure. To make the experience more comfortable, the boat also features fresh water shower, saltwater washdown, huge swimming platform with a ladder for easy on and off.

June and July are all about Red Snapper and the beginning of Gag Grouper season. This is the most popular time of year for offshore fishing. After catching your limit of Red Snapper and some Grouper, you can move on to trolling for pelagic fish like Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and even Sailfish. Or fish wrecks and offshore freshwater springs for fish like huge Amberjack, Goliath Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Yellow Tail Snapper, Barracuda, Sharks, Wahoo, and other exotic fish.
