Drop Down Charters specializes in targeting a diverse range of fish species. Nearshore, we target Cobia, Sharks, Grouper, Snapper and Bull Reds, along with other popular game fish. Inshore, we target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder and Tarpon. Offshore, we target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish and the occasional Marlin, along with other exceptional bottom-feeding species.
Drop Down Charters offers diverse techniques for inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing adventures. Spin casting, trolling, jigging, live and soft bait, and hard plugs are used for inshore trophy species. Bottom fishing nearshore on wrecks and reefs produces tasty reef fish. Offshore fishing excursions are always a blast, trolling with baitfish or high-speed lures for giant pelagics, deep dropping for big reef fish, and targeting weed lines and birds for the bigger catch. With many more techniques at the captain’s disposal, Drop Down Charters ensures an unforgettable fishing experience.
Drop Down Charters offers nearshore and offshore/deep-sea fishing excursions, including Gulfstream trolling. These charters can accommodate up to 6 anglers and range from 4 to 12 hours. Inshore fishing excursions are also available for up to 3 anglers and are perfect for kids. Our very competitive pricing varies based on the duration of the trip and the number of anglers.
