Our guided inshore bay fishing trips take place in the Choctawhatchee Bay. You will fish around structures such as docks, bridges, jetties and oyster beds. In the warmer months you may also drift along grass flats with popping corks and live shrimp for some top water action.
Our most popular trips are our 4 or 6-hour half-day trips.
Live bait is most commonly used but artificials may be brought in in certain situations. We use all light tackle spinning reels and lightweight rods. Our equipment is top of the line and easy for everyone to use even the beginner angler.
Are you worried about getting seasick? Well this is the prefect trip for you! Whether you fish 75 days a year or just want to have fun with the family, fishing in the calm backwaters of the Choctawhatchee Bay is a perfect fit.

Often over looked or not taken into consideration, our late afternoon, night trips are a great way to whined down and catch the outgoing tide. These trips are designed specifically to target Speckled Trout and Redfish. You will also catch the occasional Black Drum and Black Snapper as well. Benefits to this trip include, cooler air temperatures so you don’t have to fight the hot sun. The water is often calmer towards the end of the day when the wind lies down. This allows us to throw live chum out and usually the fish will start feeding right on top! Believe it or not, this can be one of the best times to inshore bay fish! Our 4-hour late trip will consist of 3 hours fishing as the sun goes down and the last hour completely at night around dock lights. Depending on the time of year, our late trips usually depart around 4:00pm. (Central Time)

Not too far but not inshore fishing, our Near-shore Gulf fishing trips are a great way to experience bottom fishing and trolling without having to go out a long way from shore. These trips are not quite considered “deep-sea fishing” but they allow for you to catch species such as Red Snapper, King Mackerels, Spanish Mackerels, Black Snappers, White Snappers, Triggerfish, Vermillion Snappers, and the occasional Amberjack.
On this trip, you will be fishing two to seven miles off the beach and you will be in-sight of land the entire time. These trips are weather dependent! For instance, if you book a Near-shore Gulf trip on our 22ft boats and the weather does not permit, we will just keep you in the Bay to avoid the rough seas. We only take a max of 4 passengers on the 22ft boats in the Gulf. For larger parties we will refer you to our 40ft boat called the Backlash. (See Offshore Fishing Page)
KIDS FISHING AT ITS FINEST! With kids being the future of our sport, we take pride in our Kid’s fishing trips. We offer a 3 Hour kid-fishing trip designed for ages 12 and under. The first hour and a half will be fish time! We will target anything and everything that is biting to ensure constant action. We will teach the kids hands on technics on how to use the rods and reels. The last hour and a half we will wrap up the trip with a boat ride and private dolphin cruise. The dolphins here quite often put on a great show and allow boaters to get up close and personal with them. Be sure to bring your camera!
ALL LICENSES, TACKLE, BAIT, ICE AND FISH CLEANING are included on every trip. The only exclusions are food/drink and gratuity for the captain.
