Fishing Charters

Spend a day on the water and catch the big one! Let Sea Gate Boating’s professional guides take you out and be successful. We can go inshore, nearshore and even offshore and target whatever species you desire:

  • Flounder
  • Speckled Trout
  • Drum
  • Bluefish
  • Spanish Mackerel
  • King Mackerel
  • Grouper
  • Shark and more!

What separates us from other guide services is while we can take you out for a single trip, we strive to train you to be successful on your own. While others are secretive about locations and techniques we are open books and will show you our own tried and tested methods.

Things we can teach you:

  • Proper knots
  • Tackle & bait options
  • Trolling
  • Anchoring over reefs and ledges
  • Using GPS and entering waypoints
  • Fishing tidal creeks
  • Crabbing and oystering
  • Much more!

Fire up the engines and head for the open water!

Sea Gate Boating offers you an unforgettable experience with as much or as little hands-on training and instruction as you desire. Our objective is to provide you with numerous opportunities for learning how to accomplish basic tasks of boating including: firing up the engines, driving the boat, handling the lines, navigating, chart plotting, and even anchoring up to shore for easy and safe access.

DO-IT-YOURSELF CHARTERS are fun for the whole group!

Fish for fresh local varieties using live bait that you catch yourself! Navigate with GPS, anchor over an offshore ledge, rig the fishing poles, choose the right rig, bait the hook, set up downriggers & outriggers, gaff the fish and bring her in!
The captain’s always on board to help.
