Service Description

OFFSHORE CANYON Yellow Fin, Blue Fin, Big Eye, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi These overnight 24-48 hour trips offer anglers lots of canyon fishing time. These trips are available July - November weather permitting. Trips may include daytime fishing for Mahi-Mahi or tuna trolling if there has been hot trolling action. The decision on what to fish for will be a 'captain's choice' depending on conditions. We will then fish for tuna during the 'sunset bite', the entire 'night bite', and the 'morning bite'. We suggest you bring a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED for these trips.
