Southpaw Fishing Charters

Capt. Brad Simonds owns and operates Southpaw Fishing Charters. He’ll take you on exciting fishing trips aboard a 43’ custom-built Torres Sportfisher, constructed in 2002 by Claude Torres, a distinguished boat builder. The boat is powered by a 700 HP Lugger diesel engine, and comes outfitted with a comprehensive package of navigational and marine electronics. These include a GPS/Chart plotter, multiple fish finders and depth sounders, several VHF radios and a radar by Northstar and Simrad.

The vessels’ two-tiered livewell system enables the crew to maintain large quantities of live bait throughout the trip. Inside the cabin, there’s a comfy seating area surrounding a dinette and a spacious cushioned bench. One of Southpaw’s more prominent features is its Tuna tower, which the crew utilizes for a variety of fishing techniques all throughout the year, and which they feel gives them the edge over many of their competitors that don’t have a tower on board.

Born and raised in Massachusets, Capt. Brad first started working as a Captain over 30 years ago, running a 55’ Holton out of Key Largo, and spending the spring months on the Yucatan Peninsula. After being at the helm of several private and corporate-owned charters, Brad decided to go independent and started the Southpaw Fishing Charters in 2002.

The Southpaw crew specializes in light tackle live bait fishing, trolling, kite fishing, bottom and wreck fishing for a variety of pelagics and resident game fish inhabiting the area. Those include Billfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper and many others. Custom fishing trips can also be organized upon request, such as bluewater fly fishing, live bait kite fishing, tournament sportfishing, night Snapper or Swordfish trips, as well as fishing excursions to the Tortugas and other long-range trips.
