SHARK FISHING CHARTERS
Captain Jimmy wants more than anything for his customers to have a great time. He strives his hardest to stay on top of the fishing reports from other anglers as well as his own intuition, so that you have the best shot at catching that trophy fish. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your trip, please express this to Captain Jimmy. He will always consider a refund or rescheduled trip if warranted. We want you to enjoy your time with us.
Blue Voodoo Outfitters offers three different types of trips, all of which are offered at 4, 6, and 8 hours. Our reef and wreck trip is also offered at 10 hours, which is the recommended length for that trip. All trips are available for up to 6 anglers. That's right, 6 people can fish on our trips and are covered under our fishing license. You do not need to purchase fishing licenses. Please add $100 for groups of 5 or more . Departure times can be changed upon request and may vary based on the weather and the season. We do allow and encourage you to bring children, as long as they are of age 4 or older. All day trips depart between 6:00am and 7:00am depending upon the season. Afternoon trips may be booked upon request.
All fishing licenses are included. We supply all tackle, bait, fishing gear, ice, and bags for fish filets. Customers may keep fish as long as they are of legal requirements. We will clean it for you. We will have water and some soda drinks on board but please bring any other drinks or snacks that you would like to have.
We do offer catered food through our professional chef… @grilledcheesesocial. She is well known for feeding our town some of the best food in the country. Food requests must be made 48 hours in advance. Options will be discussed upon booking.
what to bring
Please dress accordingly. The Florida sun is hot and dangerous. Long sleeves and sunscreen is recommended. Please wear non-marking soled shoes. If they are not non-marking, you may be asked to remove them. This is a boat, and your feet may get wet. Please keep this in mind when picking footwear.
If you are doing a nearshore trip and are prone to sea-sickness, please take bonine or dramamine the night before as well as the morning of the trip. This helps prevent any sea-sickness.
