Fishing in Pensacola can lead you anywhere! Our Inshore/Nearshore Charters fish all different locations including: Pensacola Bay, Pensacola Pass, the Intercoastal Waterway, and up to 9 miles off of Pensacola Beach into the Gulf of Mexico. To fish all of these different locations we have to use very versatile boats. Using our 22-24 foot center console bay boats our guides are able to have you fishing for redfish next to docks and grass flats in 3 feet of water or bottom fishing for red snapper in 65 foot off water in the Gulf of Mexico.
Varying throughout the year our guides on the Inshore/Nearshore charters target a number of different species of fish. Inside of Pensacola Pass we primarily target redfish, speckled trout, flounder, sheepshead, Spanish mackerel, and occasionally red snapper depending on the bite. When we get out into the Gulf of Mexico we target the northern gulfs famous red snapper. Throughout the year red snapper have a very short season for when they are able to harvest but we are still able to get on a great catch and release bite. Other types of fish in the gulf include our favorite, King Mackerel, triggerfish, amberjack, black snapper, and many other reef fish that frequent our local waters.
Our guides are on the water every day from March through September and about 4-5 days a week the rest of the year and do their best to stay on a consistant bite to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. These are fantastic trips for any type of fisherman be it your first time on a boat or a seasoned veteran. Our Inshore/Nearshore trips are great for groups up to 4 people and some boats can fit an additional 5th person in your party.
