Flats Boat Fishing with Captain Ed

If you’re looking for a 5-star flats fishing adventure, hit the beautiful bays of Fort Walton Beach with extreme outdoorsman and TV star Captain Eddie Brochin! Also known as “Captain Extreme,” you may have seen his face before on Ultimate Outdoors TV. He’s ready to bring star quality to your angling adventure on board Flats Boat Fishing with Captain Ed charters.

You’ll learn top tricks of the trade as you reel in a variety of fish species, including Speckled Trout, Bull Redfish, and Flounder. On your informative and exciting expedition, you’ll enjoy hours of angling fun, all while nestled in the tranquil bay and surrounded by gorgeous scenery.

Capt. Eddie offers guests the chance to try out techniques such as conventional fishing, fly fishing, bowfishing, and even Flounder gigging. His 17’ Eagle performance flats vessel is the perfect way to try out these fishing methods and really make the most of these shallow, fish-filled waters.

There’s room for up to 4 guests on board your captain’s vessel, unless you opt for fly fishing – on these trips, he’ll happily accommodate 2 anglers. The vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, life jackets, and a multimedia system.

Fort Walton Beach’s shallow waters are home to some world-famous fish, and your target species will vary slightly depending on the trip you go for. Your captain recommends that newbies and families looking for a one-off adventure opt for his bowfishing trip, and he’ll even provide specialized gear for little ones. You’ll mainly be targeting Sheepshead and Black Drum.

If you want to hook something tasty for dinner, a Flounder gigging trip under the cover of darkness is an unusual way to experience these waters. Expert-level anglers can bring along their fly gear for the chance to battle Bull Reds and Speckled Trout in the shallows.

Conventional rods and reels are included, as well as your license. Get ready to star in your own flats fishing adventure with Captain Extreme!
