Great time with Capt Jim today. Plenty of fish came back in. Not sure who the fastest was, Jim getting the bait on for all of us, or that pesky fish that kept stealing our bait? Looking forward to the next trip! - Mike Whitley

Gone Coastal Charters Fishing Trip

Our Fishing Boat

The adventure begins when you step onto the 2015 Sea Hunt Ultra 234. At just over 23 feet long, this charter fishing boat was built for people who enjoy a range of water activities. From fishing to skiing to pleasure cruising—the Sea Hunt Ultra can do it all! Other amenities include Lowrance HDS’s chartplotter and sonar system, which help track the coastline, preview the depth contours of upcoming locations, and plot a safe course, and a VHF radio for reliable communication.

On each fishing charter trip, Gone Coastal Charters will provide fuel, ice, fishing license, bait, tackle, and drinking water. Guests will want to bring their own sunscreen, sunglasses, rain gear, Dramamine (in case of motion sickness), and beverages (alcohol is allowed in moderation).
