Our 36 hour trips are the ultimate off-shore experience! Our trip takes you out to bottom fish reefs and structures in 150- 400 ft of water for a variety of deep water species such as types of snapper, grouper, amberjack and more. At night we fish floating oil platforms over 120 miles offshore for yellow and black fin tuna. Our second day we bottom fish again before it is time to head for home. Your catch on these trips may include types of snapper, grouper, amberjack, tuna, sharks, ling, kingfish, dorado, and many other deep water species.
The Capt. John is a 75 foot catamaran that can accommodate the 40 fisherman on a 36 hour trip comfortably. There are 40 sleeping bunks inside the spacious cabin. There is a full galley inside the air conditioned cabin where there is also a television you can watch while you eat and take a break from fishing.
The boat will leave at 7:30 A.M. the first day of your trip and will return at 7:30 P.M. the next day. We do ask that you make it here around 6:30 A.M. so that you have time to get your gear loaded and the boat can leave on time. We will provide you with a fishing rod, reel, hooks, weights, and squid.
