Answers to common questions
What can we expect? (our number one question)
Fishing always varies from season to season. Visit our news section for fishing reports. Typically, half day trips you can expect to catch snapper, porgies, grunts, grouper, triggerfish and kingfish during season. Three quarter day trips you can expect to catch the same mix of fish but you will have more time to fish and a better chance for grouper and banded rudder fish. All day trips include amberjacks to the mix, grouper and snapper.
What do you supply?
We supply all required licenses, tackle, bait, fuel, coolers, ice, and lots and lots of experience
What should we bring?
You should bring any food or drink that you would like for your trip duration. Also, if you are fishing with us throughout the day, remember your sun screen, hats, jackets and sunglasses and anything else you need to be comfortable on the boat.
How many people can we have on our charter?
Up to 5 people in your party are allowed on Double Trouble but the boat fishes best with 4.
Are there any age requirements?
There are no age requirements but keep in mind the length of time you will be on water especially when fishing with children. Often the overall success of your trip depends on everybody enjoying themselves.
Do I need any special fishing experience?
No, we have all the experience that you need. We love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished a day in their life, but leave with a new understanding and a unforgettable experience. We also have seasoned fishermen and lots of locals that like to come out with us to pick our brain and learn new techniques. We love to share our knowledge.
Can I eat the fish I catch?
Some of the fish you are likely to catch is edible for sure, and yours to keep. Generally, if the fish is not edible, we release it, or sometimes use for bait. We partner with local restaurants like the Cortez Kitchen and the Swordfish Grill both offering waterside dining just steps from our dock that will cook your catch! After a day on the water you may not want to cook and just keep the party going to celebrate your great day on the water.
