Florida Sport Fishing TV* is back at it again aboard the legendary Yankee Capts. Join Capt Mike and the Florida Sport Fishing TV crew this summer for an angling adventure like no other. We’ll be fishing the rich waters of Rankin Ridge, a rarely visited deep sea fish haven deep into the Gulf of Mexico. This will be a combo trip designed to fill the boxes with deep water deep dropping during daylight hours and shallower manual fishing up on the bank during the cover of darkness. Fish around the clock for a variety of highly prized grouper and snapper species with hard fighting blackfin tuna and trophy wahoo always a possibility!
*Pool: $100 cash collected on board winner take all (heaviest grouper or snapper)
