Siesta Key, Sarasota Nokomis, Venice FL Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Half-Day Offshore Fishing Charters

What is included:

A Half-Day Fishing Charter of about 4 hours in the Gulf of Mexico

FishFactor offers a great selection of tackle and fishing rods onboard to choose from that are custom fit to the size and strength of each angler so you can catch that big one! However, it’s not all about using a big rod… to catch big fish. It’s also about being able to handle and control a rod and being able to reel that BIG FISH in!

All the necessary fishing equipment, bait and licenses are included

This 1/2 day fishing charger trip is ideal for:

Most of the year, a four hour fishing charter trip is a very friendly trip for:

  • The novice angler and families
  • The avid angler hoping to bust a trophy fish
  • The whole family or for those not so sure on how their “sea legs” will handle a full-day fishing charter trip.
  • Good action is practically guaranteed all year round on a half-day fishing trip.

What this trip is like in the winter season:

Cooler water temperatures provides many species very close to our Sarasota County Beaches, great for shorter trips.

We suggest you dress in layers so you can shed them if needed.

If there’s a cold wind, bring a warm wind-breaker jacket.

What this trip is like in the summer season:

While the heat of summer pushes Grouper and Snapper well offshore, there is still plenty of fish closer to the coastline

Bring lots of sun protection and water!

If you’re not sure which trip length to choose:

Start out with a half-day fishing charter because there may be the option of extending that 4 hour trip into a 6 or 8 hour offshore fishing charter trip if the crew is wanting more line stretching pain and Captain Ed has no other commitments.

Full-Day Offshore Fishing Charters

What is included:

A full-day fishing charter is a trip where you can be sure not to be seeing any land or having cell phone reception, after reaching the fishing grounds.

Our Full-Day deep sea fishing charters usually average just over an hour of travel time to the desired fishing grounds, leaving plenty of time for fishing and having fun. Maybe it seems to you like a long day on the water but time flies by fast when you are trying to get revenge on that grouper that took you in the rocks and “busted” you off!

Typical fishing trips range from going 20 to 30 plus miles offshore, depending upon were the fish are at that time of the year.

FishFactor offers a great selection of tackle and fishing rods onboard to choose from that are custom fit to the size and strength of each angler so you can catch that big one! However, it’s not all about using a big rod… to catch big fish. It’s also about being able to handle and control a rod and being able to reel that BIG FISH in!

All the necessary fishing equipment, bait and licenses are included

This full-day fishing charger trip is ideal for:

  • Anyone who is not afraid to be offshore without seeing land
  • Anyone who loves fishing and can spend a full day on the water
  • Anyone who is serious about catching the “BIG ONE”
  • All experienced anglers
  • The whole family, including kids who can handle being out all day

What this trip is like in the winter season:

Cooler water temperatures provides many species very close to our Sarasota County Beaches, but plenty of big game fish offshore as well.

What this trip is like in the summer season:

The heat of summer pushes Grouper and Snapper well offshore, which means this is perfect for choosing the full-day trip because we go farther out.

On a trip like this… as Captain Ed always ends his articles in “Gaff Magazine”….

”Expect the unexpected!”
