A Breakdown of a Typical Season

We offer light tackle fishing charters in the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. The options include inshore guided fishing trips, offshore charters, and surf fishing charters. The trips are for four people (or 5 if at least one is under 13 years old). We fish with gear light enough to get to know the fish but heavy enough that you should be able to land it. 

The boat is a 2016 Sea Hunt Triton 210 with a Yamaha 150. We can run anywhere from the shallow flats in the bay, up the rivers, to even 30 miles offshore on a single trip. Yeti coolers will keep your drinks and food cold while two fish boxes up front full of ice will keep your fish and filets fresh until we get back to the docks. The boat is registered with a fishing license so no additional licenses need to be purchased. All safety equipment is also provided in case of emergencies.
