Fishing is one of those sports that, depending on the type of fish you’re going after, can be an exhilarating adrenaline rush or a calming as the bay you are fishing on. Some days you can enjoy a little bit of both. Charter fishing  is an outstanding way to spend the day with good friends and/or family – especially if you use a private jet charter to reach one of these six charter fishing areas.

Located within easy distance of Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport, Pensacola International Airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, Destin Airport, Duke Field, and Bob Sikes Airport, Destin, Florida has a lot to offer anyone looking to get lucky with fish.

Pier fishing is available year round in Destin, but the best months for hauling in a nice catch are between April and October. Deep sea fishing in the warm waters of the Gulf is best between August and October when white and blue marlin, wahoo, dolphin, and sailfish are active.

Golf isn’t the only game in town for visitors to Myrtle Beach. Just as there are world-class golf courses in abundant supply, visitors can also enjoy abundant deep sea fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, Gulf Stream fishing, and more throughout the year.

In addition to fishing charters, Myrtle Beach has long piers that jet out over the water for people who prefer a more social fishing experience, beach fishing, boat rentals, offshore fishing, inshore fishing, saltwater and freshwater fishing. If you’re looking to bring home a really big fish tale, though, deep sea charters are the only way to go. Night fishing charters just might net you a tiger or black tip shark.

Nearby airports that can easily accommodate private jets include Myrtle Beach international Airport, Grand Strand Airport, Conway-Horry County Airport, and Odell Williamson Muni.

 Great Lakes Fishing

The U.S. is home to five great lakes where opportunities to reel in that big catch abound. Needless to say, you’ll come home with a few great fish stories when fishing in any one of these Great Lakes:

  • Lake Superior
  • Lake Michigan
  • Lake Huron
  • Lake Erie
  • Lake Ontario

The great thing about the lakes for fishing is the diversity of fish you’ll find including brown trout, chinook, and steelhead. If you’re interested in walleye and sauger, night time fishing is your best bet to bring them in during summer months, and if you’re interested in daytime fishing, dark windy days are preferred.

Each of the Great Lakes features abundant airports and destinations where your private charter jet can land.

The fish are biting and now is the time to book your private jet charter flight today. Gather up your fishing buddies or your family, then call Presidential Aviation to work out the details of your private jet flight to outstanding charter fishing areas in the U.S.
