You’ll experience a smooth ride aboard the captain’s 24’ pathfinder bay boat, built for shallow inlets and flats, but also sturdy enough to face the choppy nearshore waters of the Atlantic. You’ll reach the fishing grounds in a jiffy with a 225 HP Yamaha outboard engine and a fishfinder used to detect sonar pulses deep beneath the surface.
Capt. Ben is a master at using light tackle to battle Stripers, Trout, Snook, Redfish, and other tough-fighting fish. He’ll take out the medium-to-heavy tackle when big Cobia come out to play between the beginning of May and the end of June. In the summer months, he likes to take his customers a little further out into the ocean to troll for Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel to experience the chase of the fast pelagics. Other target species include Sheepshead, Flounder, Black Drum, and whatever else is biting at any given time of year.
In general, seasons run from spring to fall, but Capt. Ben also does winter trips for those willing to make longer runs to areas where the fish are. You’ll be provided with top-of-the-line equipment, from ultralight to medium-heavy tackle. Maximum capacity on each trip is 4 guests and everyone can fish comfortably at the same time without tangling their lines.
