Anglers will be happy to know that deep-sea fishing is possible and an exciting reality here in the Southeast . It’s as easy as chartering a boat to feel the thrill of the big blue deep waters. Some fish you can try to wrangle into the boat are: Atlantic blue marlin, Atlantic sailfish, yellowfin tuna, mahimahi, and wahoo.
