Sportfishing Charter: Family Trips

Booking a sportfishing charter boat trip is the perfect way to connect with nature and your family. From drag screaming fights to non-stop action, booking the right type of sport fishing charter boat trip for your group requires a little planning.

Here are different types of sport fishing charter trips to consider when you're booking a trip for your family.

Spouse and Kids

If you're looking for a sportfishing charter trip that appeals to your wife and children, you'll need something that provides excitement and novelty. You'll also likely want to avoid long trips through rough seas.

In Shore

Some of the most diverse sportfishing trips available can be found inshore. This can mean targeting Snook in the Mangroves or jigging for Snapper along bridge pilings. The key to booking the right type of trip for your wives and kids is about adaptability. Before you book a trip with a sportfishing charter boat captain, ask them to give you a general game plan. This game plan should include a little sightseeing and also some variety. Thus, if the Snook aren't biting or the Snapper are scarce, your sportfishing charter boat captain should have several back-up plans. Knowing that your spouse and children will be entertained, regardless of the bite, can be reassuring.

Trophy Trips

If you're fishing with seasoned anglers, you can book sport fishing charter trips to target trophy catches. Although it might be hours between bites and your success won't be guaranteed, the thrill of the chase can be more than worth the price of the trip.


In the Gulf of Mexico, the ocean floor is relatively shallow many miles from shore until it plummets to unfathomable depths. Where the ocean floor drops, the water changes color to the deepest blue you can imagine. Along this edge of pellucid blue water, schools of monster sport fish find both shelter and an ambush point. Booking a bluewater trip with a sportfishing charter boat captain will involve a boat ride of several hours. Once you reach the precipice of the blue water you can begin trolling with deep-diving plugs for sport fish like Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Spinner Sharks, Tuna, and Grouper. If you can locate a school of fish, you might be able to catch several trophy fish. You might also want to consider booking a multi-day trip just in case the bite takes a while to turn on.

A Memorable Anniversary Trip

My sister recently celebrated her first wedding anniversary with her amazing husband. To commemorate this special occasion, my sister and her spouse traveled to the small, mountain town they visited on their honeymoon. On their anniversary trip, they reserved a beautiful guest room at an inn. The friendly staff at the inn did everything in their power to make my sister and her husband feel welcomed and comfortable. The staff at the inn even prepared a delicious, hot breakfast for them each morning. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of celebrating a momentous occasion in a peaceful mountain town. Enjoy!
