Deep dropping is the name of the game on our 12 hour bottom fishing trips! We'll head up to 35miles off the coast to deep drop for Tilefish, a variety of Grouper species, and maybe even Swordfish! The season determines what we'll be fishing for, but be sure to bring a cooler because no matter what time of the year you plan you're trip, you'll be heading home with a cooler full of fresh fillets!
