Based out of peaceful, idyllic Santa Rosa Beach, Pharmasea Outfitters is in the perfect location to show you some productive inshore waters and to get you out in the Gulf. Captain Brandon Simon invites you aboard to share a fantastic fishing experience. A pharmacist by trade, he’s always been an avid angler, moving to Florida to pursue his passion. He can’t wait to show you the reasons why he came.

The 2019 25’ Pathfinder bay boat is a modern vessel, designed for both nearshore and inshore fishing. Light, yet spacious, she’s able to navigate the shallow waters with ease, while cutting across the tops at speed as you head out into the deeper waters. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and with a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio on board, rest assured you’ll be chasing those fish like there’s no tomorrow.

See for yourself why Capt. Brandon fell in love with this place. Whatever trip you choose, you’re in for a treat. Along the inshore flats, backcountry, and bays, you’ll get to target delicious and exciting Redfish, Trout, Pompano, Sheepshead, and many more. During the summer months, you’ll even have the chance to go after every angler’s dream catch – Tarpon.

Using live bait and a range of lures to entice the bite, you can troll offshore or bottom fish the nearshore reefs. Radiant Red Snapper can be caught during season, but magnificent Kingfish and tasty Mahi Mahi will also be biting, as you look to take a delicious treat back to shore. With Capt. Brandon’s experience, you can be sure of taking something succulent home for dinner.

At the end of the day, your catch will be cleaned and prepared, so all you need to do is cook it up when you get home. The fun will continue long after you step back on dry land! Bring some snacks and drinks to make the most of your time on board Pharmasea Outfitters, and that’s that. You’re ready for a great day on the water. Discover why the Panhandle is famed for its fishing!

A pharmacist by profession, Capt. Brandon spends all his spare time on the water. He moved to Florida 7 years ago to take advantage of the incredible fishing on offer, and decided to make his passion a new profession. From Venice, Lousiana to Key West, he's fished all over the Gulf, competing in several tournaments along the way. His 2019-model boat is his new vessel, which he's looking forward to sharing with other fishing fanatics, as well as any keen novice.
