Our Reel In Fun Charter team has a wonderful crew of friendly professionals ready to assist you in any way we can. Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or have never been fishing before, we are here to make your Gulf Coast fishing experience fun, safe, and enjoyable. The best compliment we can receive is that you want to come back and fish with us again. We offer many types of charters, since the Gulf of Mexico has a wonderful variety of fish, including red snapper, grouper, amberjack, triggerfish, mingo snapper, scamp, wahoo, marlin, flounder, speckled trout, blue fish, redfish, sheepshead, cobia, Spanish and king mackerel, and sharks. We also offer spectacular sunset cruises and dolphin charters. Our cruises operate in and around Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key, Gulf Breeze, and Navarre Beach. Our boats visit the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, Escambia Bay, Big Lagoon, and East Bay.

Trolling & More

Because of the vastness of the Gulf and the fact that many of the fish we target are migratory, finding where the fish are located requires covering a lot of water. Trolling lets us find fish and entice them to strike. Trolling is pulling a number of baits behind the boat as we motor across the water. The baits can be live, rigged dead bait or some or our custom made lures. The baits are spread across the water to cover more area and to prevent the lines from becoming tangled. Some baits are drug across the top of the water and some are placed at various depths using our custom downriggers.

Jigging & Bottom Fishing

One of the easiest ways to find fish is to look for offshore structures, like small rock piles and natural bottom cavities. There are hundreds of 20’ to 50’ structures anywhere from 1/2 to 10 miles out. We use electronics and custom charts to position the boat up-current to set up a drift over these areas. The jig head weights we use are varied, depending on water depth and current speeds. Just drop the bait all the way to the bottom, making sure you can maintain good bottom contact and start bouncing it around the structure as you drift. I like to let the jig free-fall to the bottom as I think the commotion of it banging on the structure or kicking up sand helps to draw attention. Then, set the hook!
