From the flats of Santa Rosa Sound to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Doubled Up Charters has you covered. Seasoned veterans, as well as anglers new to the sport are all welcome to join Captain Ryan Maxwell for a calm and fun-filled day on the area’s waters. With a whole slew of fish species to chose from, all types of anglers will have a chance to experience the excitement of local fishing on a trip you won’t soon forget!

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 2019, 24’ Blazer Bay center console, powered by a mighty 300 HP Suzuki outboard. She’s capable of reaching speeds of up to 55 knots and won’t leave you waiting to reach the desired fishing grounds for long. Equipped with all the necessary safety equipment, GPS, communication, and fish finding electronics, you’ll have access to all the tools necessary for a productive trip.

You’ll be provided with everything you need to fish. All guests will be equipped with top-notch Penn and Shimano rods and reels, artificial lures, and live bait. Depending on the trip bait may be caught ahead of time or at the beginning of the trip. Either way it’s included in the price. Kids are welcome to join in on the trips, there is no minimum age and appropriate life jackets will be available.

The meetup location has access to free parking but there are no stores nearby so be sure to get your drinks and snacks before you show up. On board, you’ll have access to a cooler and ice, so no need to bring one. Your fishing license is also covered by the charter so the only additional thing you should pack is your sunscreen.

Now, if you already have a date in mind, and it’s open in the captain’s calendar, you can go ahead and book your next fishing adventure right away!

About the Captain

Ryan Maxwell
Pensacola Beach, Florida, United States
16 Customer Reviews
Response time 3 hours
Member since August 2019
Ryan has been fishing for 40 years. He started fishing with his dad early on but got licensed recently to help his brother. He has fished many Red Fish tournaments alongside his brother and they have always been very successful. Kids are more than welcome on his trips, as he enjoys watching them catch their first fish, but also his effort is worth it once someone catches something they couldn't ever catch otherwise.
