16/18 HOUR SPECIAL INSHORE EXOTICS TRIP – BLUEFIN TUNA, MAHI, ALBIES & BONITO (July & Aug.)
Our 16/18 Hour Special Inshore Exotics trips primarily target BLUEFIN TUNA as well as MAHI, ALBIES & BONITO. The GOLDEN EAGLE has several of these trips scheduled for the 2021 season starting on July 12th, 2021.
These trips depart at 11:00 PM (departure time subject to change based on fishing conditions) and return from 3:00 to 5:00 PM the next day. The cost is $310 per person. On these trips, a rod & reel set up that has a 60 to 80 lb test line & that is “jigging capable” is the preferred type of equipment. You should also have a spinning rod & reel with a 20 to 30 lb monofilament line for the Mahi, Albies & Bonito. We primarily use “slow pitch” lures for the BLUEFIN but we have bait on board for the times the fish want it. Generally, these trips fish between 40 and 60 miles offshore.
Due to the many regulations that NMFS has on Bluefin tuna, any Bluefin boated will be cleaned and divided among all passengers who want some.
Bunks are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
All of our 16/18 Hour Special Inshore Exotics trips are limited to the number of passengers that we carry and ADVANCE PREPAID RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.
