Flattie Daddy Guide Service

If you’re looking for a fishing trip that has an enthusiastic captain at the helm, then you need to book a trip with Flattie Daddy Guide Service today. Captain Dillion has been fishing since he was a kid and is thrilled that he now gets to fish every day as his career.

Step on board his classic 22’ Bay Stealth boat. There’s enough room for 4 anglers to fish at once without crossing lines. This boat can easily get to those hard to reach areas, giving you that extra edge over your prey. The boat is decked out with safety gear too, so you can fish with peace of mind.

Some of the species you’ll be targeting include Flounder, Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Alligator Gar, Blacktip Shark, and many more when bay fishing. If you opt to try out gigging, you’ll mainly be targeting Flounder, as well as Sheepshead and Black Drum.

Speaking of gigging, on these specialized trips there’s a minimum age of 18 for all anglers. The bay trips are suitable for everyone, with no minimum age. Life vests are provided. All equipment is provided on every trip. When fishing using conventional techniques, you’ll be casting off with Penn and Shimano gear.

Also included in the price are snacks and drinks. You’ll have pre-wrapped sandwiches, candy, water, Gatorade, and soft drinks. You’ll need to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat with you.

Live bait will be prepared before the trip so more time is spent fishing for the species you really want to hook. This is included in the price of the trip. After the trip, the captain will clean your catch for you, too.

You must buy a fishing license before the trip begins and bring this with you on the trip.

Book a trip today with Flattie Daddy Guide Service for a fun and memorable day out with an accommodating and friendly captain!

Captain Dillon has been fishing his whole life. He began running charters in 2019 and is very enthusiastic about starting this new career – when you love fishing as much as he does, it doesn't even feel like work! Capt. Dillon loves to see people catching their first fish. Something he's very proud of is that the state record Flounder was gigged out of his boat, measuring 34.5 inches and weighing 14.7 pounds!
