Double Trouble Fishing Trips
Our fishing trips
Double Trouble specializes in Grouper, Snapper and Amberjack but we also target most Gulf of Mexico species depending on the duration of the trip and time of the year and of course, what you like to eat.
We offer half day, three quarter day and all day trips. We do not push you into a one-size fits all fishing experience. Each trip is customized to your individual tastes and preferences, the number in your party, weather conditions and the bite.
We quote each trip on an individual basis to deliver maximum value for your day on the water with us. A quick call to (941) 746-6919 or email and we will gladly give you a price and availability.
If we are out on the Gulf or unavailable to answer your call, text or email immediately, we will return all inquiries within 24 hours and often much sooner.
In addition, Double Trouble is one of the few boats that offer SPLIT CHARTERS where an individual or duo can put their name on a call list and be notified when others would like to join them to lower their individual cost by filling the boat. If a full fare charter is booked and the scheduled split trip is not filled, it will be moved to the next convenient date. This is very popular with our seasonal locals and guests alike who can be more flexible with their fishing times.
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.
Also in Cortez we are all like family, we sit adjacent to two of the area’s best casual waterside seafood restaurants, The Cortez Kitchen and the Swordfish Grill. They will both cook your catch for you and provide sides for a nominal fee so you can keep the party going. In Cortez, everybody is just “off the water” so you can come as you are for sure.
