Offshore, Inshore, and Deep Sea Fishing
Pensacola Fishing Charters
Pensacola is a city placed between two very well-known fishing destinations, Orange Beach, Alabama and Destin, Florida. Don’t worry though, we all fish the same great waters in the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you’re looking for some inshore action or want to venture offshore we’ve got you covered.
Our inshore fishing is done in a number of different bodies of water including Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and Big Lagoon. You’ll find that what we call inshore / nearshore trips is a little different than what you find elsewhere.
We use 22’ to 24’ bay boats on our inshore / nearshore trips and when the weather cooperates we make our way out into the Gulf of Mexico in search of red snapper, gag grouper, amberjack, and triggerfish. We also do a lot of fishing just outside of Pensacola Pass and around the USS Massachusetts for king and Spanish mackerel.
If staying in the calm waters of Pensacola Bay is more your thing we have no problem hitting the flats and residential docks for redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. We also catch a decent amount of Spanish mackerel and mangrove in our inland waters.
We have a number of different things to choose from on our offshore trips just depending on how many people you have in your group and your budget. If you only have yourself or a small group your best bet is a walkon charter where you’re grouped with other people. On these trips there will typically be 10 to 25 people on board.
If you’re looking for a private trip you will need to decide whether you need a six-pack boat or a multipassenger. Six-pack boats can legally take up to six anglers, while multipassenger boats are told how many they make take based on their size, for us it’s anywhere from 7 to 49.
On offshore charters our most popular catches are red snapper, vermillion snapper, amberjack, triggerfish, grouper, and scamp. We can target blue marlin, white marlin, swordfish, tuna, wahoo, and dolphin if that is what you’re looking to do.
Give us a call today and we’ll help you figure out the best trip for you, your family, and friends. There are a few questions we can ask to put you on the right boat and insure you have a load of fun. All of our trips include fishing licenses, bait, tackle, ice, and fish cleaning.
THE BEST CAPTAINS IN THE BUSINESS!
At Pensacola Fishing Charters our top priority is the customer. To ensure you have the best charter possible our captains and crew stay on the water fishing pretty much every day from March to September. With the most experienced captains and guides in the area our job is to put you on the fish and look for that trophy catch to show all of your friends (and a little dinner on the table of course). All of our captains have fished these waters for at least 20 years and have mastered their craft. We want to share our knowledge with you and have a great time reeling fish in!
