Carter Mobile Marine & Fishing Service

Carter Mobile Marine & Charter Fishing Service is looking forward to welcoming you aboard one of their fun and relaxing trips. Visit some of Captain Jimmy’s favorite fishing spots in the Pensacola Bay and surrounding waters. Lean on your captain’s 30-year experience fishing the Gulf and you’re guaranteed to catch fish!

The boat you’ll be fishing off of is a 27’ Pro Kat catamaran, equipped with dual 225 HP Yamaha engines. The boat’s spacious design can accommodate up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time. On board, you’ll also find all the electronics and safety equipment you need to have a safe and productive day on the water. The boat also has a portable toilet, an ice-box, and a large cooler for drinks and snacks so no need to bother bringing one yourself.

Take advantage of the rich bay waters and target some of the region’s most popular species, just moments away from the shore. Troll for pelagics like Kingfish or Cobia, bottom fish for Snapper and Grouper, or move further offshore and give kite fishing a shot, targeting Mahi Mahi and Tuna. One way or another, it’s gonna be an experience you won’t soon forget and soon you’ll find yourself wanting to come back and chase an even bigger catch!

On all their adventures, the captain will provide you with rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live and artificial bait. If you come across live bait on your trip you may opt to catch some yourself but there will always be bait ready for you. At the end of your trip, the captain can always clean and fillet your catch.

All that’s up to you is to get a fishing license, dress for the season, bring sunscreen and your choice of drinks and snacks. Now, set aside a date, book a trip and get ready for your upcoming fishing adventure!

Jimmy has been a captain for 15 years but has been fishing in the Gulf of Mexico for over 30 years.
