With more than three decades of experience as an avid angler and diver, Capt. Frank is a highly knowledgeable guide to the coastal treasures that Florida’s unparalleled Big Bend region has to offer.

Capt. Frank’s 24’ Sea Hunt Triton center console is best fished with a maximum of 4 serious anglers or sightseers. The boat, which features a deep V, T-top and high gunnels, is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha four-stroke engine and is loaded with up-to-date navigational and safety equipment, along with a 60-gallon inboard bait well.

Depending on the season you’ll be able to target a variety of offshore fish, including Red Snapper, Grouper, Black Seabass, Amberjack, Triggerfish, Bonito, and King Mackerel. The most popular inshore species that Capt. Frank targets are Flounder, Speckled Trout, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Tripletail.

Freshwater adventures up the beautiful Apalachicola River, the Ochlockonee River, and the New and Crooked Rivers that form the Carrabelle River complement Capt. Frank’s saltwater excursions. Aside from the stunning scenery, these environments offer exciting fishing trips that target a variety of panfish—from Bluegill to Shellcracker, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and Blue Catfish.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels, that won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy catch. The fishing license for the day is covered by the boat for all the anglers fishing.

It’s time to book a trip with Capt. Frank’s Fun-time Charters – you’ll have a great time fishing and will make lifelong memories together. Capt. Frank will love telling you about local history and lore and information about the fish that call these waters home.
