At Fisherman's Wharf, our deep sea fishing schedule is based on the seasonal migrations and availability of various species of fish in the Gulf of Mexico. We offer half and full day drift fishing trips aboard the Wharf Cat for king mackerel, ling, dolphin, bonito, shark, etc., from mid-May through Labor Day. Year round, the Scat Cat, equipped with "electric tackle" makes 12 hour and special extended trips to far offshore banks (coral and rock formations) for red snapper, grouper, amber jack and other highly prized bottom fish. Bait, tackle, rods and reels are included and no fishing license is required on deep sea fishing charters. The Wharf Cat and Scat Cat offer a full concession on board serving hot and cold foods, snacks and beverages served by friendly, helpful crews. Both "Cats" are comfortable, smooth riding catamarans for deep sea fishing at its finest.
Private charter boats are available for our customers who prefer to fish with their own family or group and Fisherman's Wharf offers the finest private charter boats in the area, guided by professional, licensed captains. For bay and jetty fishing, we offer boats in the 18 to 25 foot range. Our popular 27 to 31 foot boats can fish in close or head for the horizon and if you are looking for all of the amenities of home, including heating and air conditioning, we offer 33 to 50 footers for your comfort. The United States Coast Guard approves these boats for up to 6 passengers with licensed captains
