If you want to experience some of the finest fishing adventures that the abundant Apalachicola can offer, then Capt Charles Charters is the thing for you. Captain Charles Wilson is a 4th generation fisherman, born and raised in Apalachicola. With over 30 years of loyal customers and 40 years of experience, the captain will put you on top of the hottest bite.
His 22’ Mako boat can accommodate up to 4 guests max in full comfort. The vessel was restored in 2018, so you absolutely don’t have to worry about possible outdated amenities. It’s powered by a 150 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engine able to develop a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots.
When it comes to fishing, the captain’s motto is ‘Let’s go catching not fishing.’ He’ll take you fishing in the state waters of Apalachicola Bay and Apalachicola River, but also in the waters of St. George Island, and Port St. Joe areas. You’ll be targeting various species, such as Speckled Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Tarpon, Black Drum, Tripletail, Flounder, and many others. Expect to do some trolling, spinning, drift, and bottom fishing. In case you’d prefer to go on a flounder gigging adventure, that could be easily arranged with the captain.
Kids are more than welcome on board, and they should be at least 5 years old. The captain will provide lifejackets for them, as well as all the fishing equipment you’ll need. From Shimano spinning reels to Penn 330 GTI, you’ll be using top-quality fishing gear. Catch cleaning and filleting is available for an additional fee and the captain can also recommend you the best local restaurants to cook your catch.
