The North Star Deep-Sea Fishing boat is a 90′ aluminum hull boat with 75 marked fishing spots around the perimeter of the rail; with 5 of those spots located on the  “bow pulpit” that hangs out over the water.   She has a spacious upper sun deck with benches and can hold an additional 75 riders.  Benches run around the exterior of the main deck cabin and inside you will find a cash galley serving hot breakfast and lunch, tables & seating areas.

The North Star is great for beginners; the 5 hour trip time will be approximately 1/2 travel to and from, and 1/2 time in the fishing reef areas.  Your choice of morning or afternoon trip does not make a difference in fishing….whichever is better for your itinerary because the fish can’t tell time!

Sunset at the marinaAs the heat of the day fades away while the beautiful sunset advances, on Tuesday and Friday nights we’ll slip out past the rest of the boats coming in for the day.  You won’t need sunglasses to watch the lights of the shore line fade away, and you can also forget the sunscreen as the large & comfortable Capt. Anderson heads out into the Gulf of Mexico and enters the calm and vast beauty of nighttime.  Night fishing trips are very unique, and after all the hustle and bustle of the day – it will seem like you have the whole ocean to yourself!

While the boat is traveling, feel free to kick back and relax on the upper deck or hang out in the large climate controlled cabin; then as the captain approaches the reefs get ready to “get your fish on”!  Fishing under the moon and stars will put a whole new perspective on your trip.  The deckhands on board are very knowledgeable and helpful, and while some species don’t bite as well at night, there are some who give better action at night than they do during the day.

20140605_221255Our night trips are on the Capt. Anderson head boat, the same vessel that takes passengers out on the 10 HR day trip, and can accommodate up to 60 fishers.  This trip will be headed out approximately 20 to 25 miles offshore and fishing in approximately 80 to 100 feet of water.

Upon our return to the dock at 2:00 am, if you wish to have your fish cleaned and filleted, the captain will open up the ice house of the Seafood Market and tag your catch with instructions.  They will be processed when the market opens and then ready for you to pickup by 9:00 am the next morning.

THIS TRIP IS PERFECT for first time fishers as well as the experienced fisherman; great for a “date night” as well as a chance to have quality time with your family; or just right for hanging out with your group of friends or co-workers –  and bring home the fish stories that will last a lifetime!

With these two 12 HR Deep Sea Fishing boats from the Hall Queen Fleet, there is versatility!  They are both 89′ wooden hull boats, with the Star Queen holding 60 marked fishing spots and the Florida Queen holding 52.  They are both interchangeable on the 12 HR schedule, so if you prefer a particular boat or captain make sure to let us know when making your reservation.

The 12 HR trips approximately 1/2 travel to and from, and 1/2 time in the fishing reef areas offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.   These boats are built for overnight trips with bunks down below equipped with a mat so all you need is to bring a blanket and pillow to catch a few winks while the boat is travelling; make sure to mention you want one while making your reservation so we can allocate it.
