One day tour: For Beginners, For Amateurs, For Anglers, For Family, For Children

Buena Vida Charters is offering daily nearshore fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico. Join Captain Champ as he takes you out on the water to catch a variety of fish. If you’re looking for a safe and fun ride, come along with us. Whether you’re looking for a short time out or want to spend the better part of the day doing some fine angling, Captain Champ has something for you. The boat has a toilet, bed, flybridge and the necessary safety equipment for a comfortable and safe ride. Equipped with outriggers, it uses GPS and fishfinder to put you on the right track. You will be fishing the wrecks and platforms for Snapper, Grouper and Sharks while drifting baits for Kingfish, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi. Try your hand at bottom fishing and trolling as well as jigging. The captain and his first mate will supply you with rods, reels and tackle as well as live bait and lures. If you’re successful, you will keep your catch and earn yourself a tasty meal. Just wear comfortable clothing and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses (polarized so you can see things in the water.) Add an ice chest full of your favorite snacks and drinks, and you are good to go. Meals and snacks can also be provided upon request. So grab your outdoor gear and come along to have a trip to remember!

Booked the half day trip for my sister in laws birthday. Our group of 6 had a great time and we all caught plenty of fish. Capt Champ headed out to a marked reef and anchored up, him and his deck hand did a great job of putting us on snapper quickly we caught a bunch of fish. Trolling for kings and spotting Ling around the stand pipes wasn’t in the cards for us that day but it wasn’t for lack of effort on the crews part. We would book again without question.

Awesome day with Captain Champ and Tyler, we got into some good Kingfish, and managed to catch several 50”-65” sharks. Kids all had plenty of action and were wore out by the end of the trip. Captain Champ and Tyler work great together and were great to be around. I will certainly book them again!

I brought my non fishing wife and 2 sons age 10+11. Overall it was successful, we would have limited out on Kingfish if not for 2 that were taken by sharks(caught 10total- 128lbs) The reason the trip was not 5 star is the only style of fishing we attempted was trolling. We did not try to catch red snapper. There are red snapper pictures all over bueno vida’s website so I thought that was an option. All other boats came in with a mix of reds and kings. We trolled 2 rods all day waiting to hear the drag run. Its fun for a while but a change up to snapper would have made it a 5 star trip. I waited 2-1/2 hours for the fish to be filleted at the end of the day, just to be told to go home and they will call us. The captain lead me to believe he paid for the fish to be filleted as that is usually part of getting a charter, when I finally picked up my fillets at 7:30 I got hit w an extra $68 bill+tip. Better communication when we docked would have kept me from wasting my day sitting at woody’s. Overall though, good trip as my sons and wife landed 32”-40” king mackerel. We got wonderful memories and had a very good day w Tyler and champ.
