Southern Comfort IV

Capt. John Schulz Hypoluxo, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Come aboard one of the very few Hypoluxo fishing charters whose Coast Guard Inspected vessel is licensed to fish up to 10 passengers! Southern Comfort IV offers affordable fishing charters for large parties, perfect for family outings, corporate fishing trips, bachelor parties, and everything in between! 

 

The Southern Comfort IV is a 48’ drift boat powered by a 670hp engine. She’s fully furnished with a wide variety of comfort features to ensure a relaxing ride to and from the fishing grounds, or in between bites. Her air-conditioned salon lets you escape the elements for a quick snack and inside you’ll also find a clean restroom. For safety features, onboard is a CPR-Trained crew, first-aid equipment, and an abundance of life jackets. On top of the comfort amenities, Southern Comfort IV is loaded up with top of the line fishing equipment! Her outriggers allow Capt. John to troll multiple lines at once, and the fishfinder ensures you’re always on the fish.

 

Captain John Schulz will be at the helm of the Southern Comfort IV. He’s a second-generation Hypoluxo native with decades of fishing experience. Captain John, along with his veteran deck hands, will make sure everyone on board is comfortable with the fishing techniques needed to land your trophy catch. Young anglers are more than welcome aboard! Captain John and the Southern Comfort IV crew are great with kids and will dedicate their time to make sure they’re having the best fishing trip.

 

There’s a variety of trip lengths to choose from for your Hypoluxo fishing charter. The half day trips, both in the morning and afternoon, are popular for the anglers that are short on time. The ¾ day and full day trips are for the fishing enthusiasts that are looking to bring a cooler full of fresh fillets back to the dock and catch their share of trophy fish! The fishing technique, season, and trip length will determine the species we’ll be targeting, but you can expect to catch Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, Grouper, Triggerfish, Mangrove Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Cobia, and more! 

 

The entire team here aboard the Southern Comfort IV is excited to share their passion with you. Captain John Schulz custom tailors each trip to YOUR preferences, no two trips are ever the same!
