Able Body Charters/Native's Son

Are you looking to looking to fill your coolers with the bounty of the sea? Maybe you’re chasing the next personal best? Whatever the question, Living Water Fishing Charters has the answer! Captain Steven Miller will take you into the blue, off the coast of Florida, in search of the hottest bite around.

Join him on board his 37’ Buskin. She’s a walkaround vessel, well-suited to navigating the waters surrounding Pensacola. You can bring 5 fishing buddies with you on this angling adventure, her deck design allows all of you to fish at once – all around the boat. You’ll get to your fishery in no time, thanks to the twin 250 HP Cummins engines.

Capt. Steven will take you after a wide range of species in the nearshore and offshore waters off the coast of Pensacola. The main attractions are Red Snapper, Black Grouper, and Triggerfish, but a variety of other species can be landed as well. Make sure to pack a cooler with you so you can take your hard-earned catch home.

The captain will provide you with all the necessary tackle for this fishing excursion. You don’t need a fishing license either, the captain’s license covers all passengers. Just remember to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and adequate clothing – it can get quite hot on the water.

Trips are customizable – contact the captain through instant messaging to work out what’s best for your fishing preference and skill level.
