East Pass Inshore Charters

(126) Going fast!

East Pass Inshore Charters is a locally owned and operated private fishing charter located in Destin, Florida. They are fun and enthusiastic about fishing and showing their guests a wonderful time on the water, as well as teaching them about the fish and techniques. They love kids and make sure every kid gets a go at catching the fish of their dreams. The crew is patient and friendly, and happy to share their fishing tales if you need extra entertainment for the children. 

The boat is a 22’ Cape Horn series powered by a 250 HP Evinrude engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. It accommodates up to 5 guests of any age or experience level. The boat features a GPS, life jackets, a fishfinder for locating schools of fish, a live bait tank, an ice-box for the fish you will catch, and a wireless trolling motor needed for fishing the shallow water. It also has a multimedia system for some relaxation and sunbathing on the spacious beam. 

East Pass Inshore Charters are so familiar with the local waters as they have fished in them for over 15 years, that they will be able to put you on some of the best specimens.

In the bayous and flats, the fish mostly caught are Redfish and Trout, and if the weather is nice and permits going into deeper waters, you will be fishing for Snappers, Groupers and Amberjacks.

The crew will provide you with rods, reels, and tackle, as well as artificial lures and live bait. You will have a fishing licence necessary for fishing the Florida waters, and complimentary water is served onboard. The crew are also happy to clean and fillet you catch once back on shore so make sure you bring a small cooler to take away your fish.
