Gaff Characters

Gaff Characters offers amazing fishing trips for all types of anglers. Whether you’re a beginner just looking for a calm bay trip or an experienced fisherman hoping to catch your new big game trophy, you’ll find all of that here. Captain Evert has been fishing since he was a kid and this is a way of living for him. Join the guide who’ll teach you lots of new tricks and make a great angler out of you in just one day.

It all starts on a 21’ Butt Cat that accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat is powered by twin 85 HP Yamaha engines and features modern navigational electronics. There’s also a live bait tank and trolling gear. And to make everything go as smooth as possible, there’s the first mate, ready to assist whenever you need him.

Your targets depend on the type of fishing grounds you choose. Some of the species you can go after are Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, Yellowtail Amberjack, Sailfish, Marlin, Barracuda, and many more. Ask the captain what’s in season and what would be the best target for your trip. There’s never any guarantee with fishing, but he’ll do his best to maximize your chances for a successful day on the water.

All fishing equipment is included in the price, so you only need to prepare your licenses and pack some food and drinks. Kids are welcome only on bay trips, for safety reasons.

It’s your turn to catch huge fish. Gaff Characters welcomes you aboard!

The reason I chose the fishing industry is because I've been doing it all my life. Fishing IS my life. I've fished everything from deep-sea to fresh water. It is my dream to have my own boat and to be the captain of it. Always strive to put fish on the hooks, but yes, as we all know, fishing is not that easy as we all think. Can only do my best!
