While a variety of recreational activities allow you to enjoy the beauty of the Gulf, few are quite as satisfying as deepsea fishing. The 30A region provides some of the state’s best fishing conditions, as well as gorgeous scenery to enjoy as you make one impressive catch after another.
If you set out with Blue Sky Fishing, you’ll receive plenty of guidance to maximize your catches. With Blue Sky’s experts on your side, there’s no need to worry about returning from your trip empty-handed.
A notoriously family-friendly tour company, Blue Sky caters to fishing newbies and veterans alike. A variety of exciting journeys are offered, including both deepsea and inshore adventures. Each booking provides access to all the essentials, including not only rods and reels, but also the necessary licenses.
Blue Sky Fishing’s success lies primarily with the knowledge and exuberance of Captains Nick Dorado and Josh Sapp. Both grew up fishing and continue to adore it to this day. These friendly captains are eager to share their passion with all those who board their vessel: the 21-foot Nautic Star.
Adventurers may appreciate the boat’s comfortable design, but they’ll be even more impressed by the ease with which it’s commanded by its captains — and by the attention to detail evident in every aspect of every trip.
The captains are also notoriously helpful. They want the fishing experience to be as fun as possible, so they’re always on hand to assist with baiting hooks or removing fish. They take a real interest in their passengers and love to make conversation. They’re especially great at interacting with kids, as they’re unfailingly patient and kind.
A few of our favorite activities include the following:
Deep sea Fishing
Deep sea fishing is far more accessible than most 30A visitors realize. Captains Nick and Josh are confident that their passengers can score amazing catches just three miles away from shore. With longer trips, however, it’s often possible to head dozens of miles past the bay. Catches can vary considerably based on the time of year, but red snapper, cobia, triggerfish, and mackerel are all common. Some guests have even managed to land sharks with the captains’ help.
Not feeling up to potentially rough waters? No problem. Inshore trips offer all the excitement of deep sea fishing but none of the worries about seasickness. Opportunities for landing great catches abound throughout the bay and in the lagoon. Depending on water conditions at the time of the trip, a brief stop for a swim on the sandbar may be possible.
A popular option among couples on the hunt for 30A romance, Blue Sky’s sunset cruises provide the perfect opportunity to decompress in a lovely setting. This is also a great alternative for anyone who is unable to commit to the four-plus hours required for standard deepsea fishing trips. Grab your camera and be prepared to snap awe-inspiring pictures from some of the region’s most beautiful vantage points.
Captains Nick and Josh of Blue Sky Fishing 30A prove that deepsea fishing can be an amazing experience, regardless of your fishing background — or lack thereof. Book a trip to discover the joy of deepsea and inshore fishing.
– Feel free to stock up on adult beverages for your fishing trip or sunset cruise. These can be kept in a provided cooler along with any snacks you might crave during your journey. Keep in mind, however, that only cans are allowed — no glass bottles.
– Booking takes place over the phone. Be sure to call well in advance, as it can sometimes be difficult to find openings for longer trips.
