Deep Sea Fishing

Sustainable practices

While fishing the Gulf of Mexico, our typical catches include red snapper, shark, ling, kingfish, dorado, amberjack, grouper, tuna and jack crevalle. The catches are seasonal and have licensing requirements.

We encourage catch and release to preserve the sport of fishing for future generations.

The Osprey II is licensed to operate 100 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico, is powered by twin Detroit 8-92 diesels, and has large auxiliary generators.

Black Dragon Pirate Ship

Smooth cruising

70′ in length

The Osprey II is a modern fishing vessel built by Breaux Bay Craft of Louisiana, one of the premier builders of aluminum off-shore vessels. Their state-of-the-art design uses the latest in electronics and fish-seeking equipment. Both are heated and air-conditioned for your comfort. They’re fast and smooth.

Each boat is equipped with spacious cabins, comfortable seating, and men’s and women’s restrooms. Ample fishing room and overall cleanliness make your trip more pleasurable.

Master Captain Bobby Dunkin and his co-captains are highly regarded fishing professionals with over 50 years of combined experience. You’ll find all our Captains and their crew friendly and efficient. We fish year-round as different species migrate through.


Sustainable fishing practices

We practice catch and release conservation!

Help us make fishing a durable recreation. We support sustainable fishing practices so that you, and generations to follow, may enjoy the opportunity to fish by catching only what we need and releasing what we don’t.

All billfish and other gamefish (tarpon, mako, etc) will be freed as soon as possible. All non-edible fish (jack crevalle, bonita, etc) will be released at boatside unless used for bait.

Fishing responsibly

Any and all fish that the catching fisherman does not intend to clean and eat will also be released before gaffing or landing. At this time, we allow the gaffing and landing of some shark species, but encourage fishermen to release these fish as well after enjoying the sport of playing them.

We are not in the business of killing fish. Our purpose is to provide you with the opportunity to experience the thrill of fishing and savor the taste of fresh-caught fish while preserving the species for future generations.
