Reel Eazy Charters

Reel Eazy Charters has been fishing Pensacola Beach’s Gulf waters for over 30 years! Captain Buddy Rogers runs one of the most experienced and longest operating charters there and he knows how to organize a memorable fishing trip.

This charter offers a wide range of trips, from a 6-hour adventure to a 12-hour fishing extravaganza. On your fishing menu are Mahi Mahi, many kinds of Snappers, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna and so much more.

If you’re a more experienced angler and want to keep your skills on point, there are trips available that will challenge your strength and fishing mastery. Amberjack fishing with Capt. Buddy has one of the best pulls outside billfishing.

Not only does he know how to get you on the fish, but he has a comfortable and reliable boat to take you there.

His 46’ Newton has a 22’ beam, which means that you will have plenty of space to angle in peace and soak in the view. She can take up to 28 people on board and has twin 450 HP Cummins engines to fly you to the top fishing spots.

The vessel is rigged with the top-of-the-line navigation gear to help you find those prized fish even faster. When you do get to them, you will have strong and reliable fishing equipment to reel in your catch. Rods, reels, tackle, lures and live bait are all provided for you, so you only need to worry about getting that fish into the boat.

Whether you’re a family that’s fishing for the first time, or the most experienced of anglers, Capt. Buddy and his first mate will show you a good time and help you hook your next great catch.  The first mate is at your disposal at all times during the trip and he works for tips, so gratuity is much appreciated.

Come and join the fun and excitement of a truly great Gulf Coast fishery with Reel Eazy Charters! You will never forget the moment when you first hear the cry “Fish On”, and you begin to fight your trophy catch.

    For this fishing trip, head out with the dawn and spend an entire day going after the deepwater superstars. Anything from Cobia, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi could find its way to your hooks, and you can also do some trolling and even fly fishing for Kingfish and Wahoo. The captain also likes to try and find larger Amberjack for some great fights. If moving out at 6 AM is too early for you, Captain Buddy will adjust the departure time to fit your needs.

    This long trip is reserved for deepwater fishing! The goal here is to go to the less traveled fishing areas and deeper waters for the bigger bite. You can expect a wider variety of catches - anything from Amberjack to Tuna. You can throw a fly line out or even troll a little from spot to spot, fishing for a Wahoo or King. These charters typically head out at 6 AM, however, Captain Buddy is flexible.

    On this 8-hour trip, you will be mainly fishing for the reef fish that are in season. You get more time to angle, so you will head to deeper waters to the bigger fish and expand on the species of fish you can keep — Cobia, Yellowfin, and Blackfin Tuna, and many more. On this trip, you may also throw a fly line out for a King Mackerel, and you have various types of live bait on the boat for a greater variety of catches. Departure times can change on this trip based on your needs.

Before becoming a boat captain, I enjoyed fishing the waters of Pensacola. I had spent a lot of my early years diving and spearfishing which honestly gave me a unique perspective of the reefs, reef fishing, and fish behavior. I know how Amberjack act and how to reel them in despite their acrobatic tendencies. I can find Triggerfish and Groupers easily, and I teach my crew these tricks of the trade. Also by knowing the behavior of fish, we know what we need to do to reel them in! I guess you could say, I learned to understand fish in their world, and that has helped me in sharing this sport with my customers.
