Inshore / Nearshore Fishing Charters
Inshore fishing charters out of Pensacola are a cross between inshore and nearshore depending on the weather conditions, what’s biting, and what you would like to catch. These trips are priced for up to 4 anglers but can take up to 6 people.
True inshore species like speckled trout, flounder, redfish, and sheepshead are caught in Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and Big Lagoon. This type of fishing is great for small kids or anglers prone to getting sea sick.
Nearshore fishing is also a Pensacola fishing charters option when the weather allows. On these trips, you’ll venture out into the Gulf of Mexico for species like red snapper, triggerfish, amberjack, and grouper.
Fishing regulations also dictate the type of fishing and target species if you want to take fish home for dinner. Many of our popular species have short seasons, but catch and release are always options. A photo with a trophy fish lasts a lifetime.
Pensacola Offshore Fishing Charters
Offshore fishing charters (deep sea fishing) in Pensacola and Pensacola Beach venture out into the Gulf of Mexico for various species, including red snapper, gag grouper, triggerfish, amberjack, vermillion snapper, scamp, sharks, mackerel, and much more.
Our popular bottom species, red snapper, triggerfish, amberjack, and gag grouper, are highly regulated and have a short season. The seasons are not consistent from one year to the next, so if there’s a certain species you’re trying to check off your bucket list, give us a call.
The majority of the fishing on our offshore fishing charters is bottom fishing. That’s what our area is known for worldwide. On these adventures, everyone on the boat gets a rod and reel and gets to be part of the fun.
If you’re more into trolling for big game species like tuna, wahoo, dolphin, and billfish, that’s also an option, but please understand you’ll need a longer trip because it’s about a thirty to fifty-mile trip just to get to the grounds to target them.
