This trip departs Thurs 3/31 @NOON Returns Sun 4/3 @NOON

The Pulley Ridge area has a series of deepwater ridges that extend for up to 30 miles that run parallel to the West Florida Escarpment. The Badlands is an area offshore of pulley ridge that has huge ledges and vast diamond-hard bottom laced with coral heads.

Our competitors can’t fish the badlands simply because the Gulfstar is the only inspected charter boat with a 200 mile United States Coast Guard Certificate in our zone. Simply put…. We can get you where the fish are and we have been safely fishing Pulley Ridge for over a decade.

Fishing depth is 240-400 feet on Pulley ridge and up to 850 feet at the Badlands.

The ride out is about 13 hours, the trip departs 12 Noon and returns approximately 12 Noon 3 days later.

We will be day fishing for deepwater species like Snowy and yellow edge grouper, Grey and Golden Tilefish and Queen Snapper. Occasionally we catch Barrelfish in the deep water too. In the shallower spots you can expect Yellow Eye and Vermillion Snapper along with Scamp and kitty Mitchell Grouper.

For those who have enough energy left after fishing all day, this trip would give you a decent chance at a night swordfish. Bring a large lever drag reel, some 400 lb test leader and some swordfish squid along with a lot of energy to stay up at night, and you will be in business. Swordfish tackle and bait can be purchased through Handler fishing supply.
