I think I should start by telling you something about me. My name is Capt. Tommy Pellegrin and I own Custom Charters, LLC. For some reason I gave up a good job with great benefits to go fishing for a living. I did this in 1995. I had been chartering part time since 1992, so add up all those years and that gives me lots of experience when it comes to fishing.
I run 2 boats; one is an offshore fishing machine. A 39’ Gravois Pilot house powered by triple 300 Suzuki’s. The other is a Team Skeeter SX240 bay boat powered by a 300 Yamaha.
I just flat out love to fish, so why not bring other people out and share the enjoyment. My smiles get bigger and bigger every time someone reels in another fish. I guess it's an illness of some sort but I know of no cure.
Make sure you bring your camera because you never know what will be on the other end of your line when you reel in. You will want to keep these memories handy for your jealous friends to look at. Whether it's corporate entertainment or just fishing with the kids, make sure to call Custom Charters, and we will make it happen for you. I will customize your trip to accommodate the type of fishing you want to do - hence the name Custom Charters.
I supply all of the necessary fishing equipment or you can bring your favorite rod and reel and put it to the test. I use Penn, Abu Garcia, and Shakespeare fishing equipment. Internationals for trolling the big tuna, Penn Spinning for top water tuna action and for mangrove snapper or cobia. Penn Torque reels for bottom fishing and Abu Garcia for inshore speckled trout and red fish.
All of this means nothing without fish coming over the side and going on ice. So trust in the fact that with my many years in the Charter business, I must be doing something right. Just remember that at the end of the day your back, shoulders and arms will be tired from catching but the smile you bring home will last a lot longer than the pain.
