High Tailin’ Offshore Fishing Charters
Welcome to High Tailin’ Offshore Fishing Charters website. First and foremost we want your experience with us to be the best that it can be for you and your family. Capt Kent Fey has been fishing out of Port Canaveral and Florida waters since 1979. He has many tournament wins to his credit and has a true desire for you to get that “catch of a lifetime” aboard his 31′ Contender. Contenders are fishing machines and they are a safe, stable platform that will get you to the fishing grounds not only safely…but QUICKLY with its twin 250 HP outboards. It can accommodate up to 6 passengers and children are welcome 5 and over. Capt Kent is also a Professional Lieutenant with fire rescue with over 30 years experience and is also a licensed EMT for those with medical conditions that may be of concern.
Capt Kent specializes in slow trolling Live Baits for Dolphin/Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Cobia and Sailfish…Other incidental catches are Jacks, Barracuda, Bonita and SHARKS. We also bottom fish for Amberjack, Grouper and Snapper. Wreck fishing is outstanding in this area due to the amount and size of these man-made artificial reefs. There are also vast amount of natural reef areas out of Port Canaveral that are fish magnet areas. These area are anywhere from 60′ deep to 270′ and we catch just about all species in these areas depending on the time of year. July is the month for red snapper if the Federal Government establishes a season. These fish are referred to as GENUINE American RED Snapper and are great table fare. The season is short, usually 2/3- 3 day weekends in July so if this is something you would like to book, please visit the Book Your Trip page to send me a message.
We also troll dead baits, high-speed troll for Dolphin / Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel and Sailfish. This is a fishery that is BEST in Spring, however it is still productive into the summer months and improves again for the Fall run. Wintertime if weather permits can be good also.
We have the best equipment and a knowledge base that is reflected in our successes daily and in the tournament arena. Capt. Kent also has seminar’s and teaches while on board. There are many sites to see while fishing out of Port Canaveral. There are scheduled launches from Kennedy Space Center and Canaveral Air Force Station, Submarines, Porpoise, Sharks, Sea Turtles and an occasional Whale. We are available for Charter for just these events and sites also not only for the Ocean but in the Inter-coastal waterways/Banana and Indian Rivers where the waters are calm and sites are abundant including Manatee’s.
