Bout Time Charters specializes in affordable and fun trips in and around Pensacola, Florida. Join the crew for a day out on the beautiful Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound or head out into the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Whether you are a beginner who has never held a rod in their hands, a seasoned professional, or just want to introduce your kids to fishing, you have found the right place. With Captain Brett, you don’t have to travel too far out to enjoy an outstanding bite. There is a lot of fun for less money!

There is no need to limit yourself to backwater fishing. If the weather cooperates, you can venture out into the Gulf for a healthy dose of Snapper, King Mackerel, and Grouper.

Or just stay within the calm waters of Pensacola Bay and explore the inshore bite. Get your hands on Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, and Spanish Mackerel. And don’t forget about Sharks that can be caught any time of the day!

All trips come with fishing licenses, tackle, ice, quality rods and reels, and fish cleaning. It’s a good idea to bring your own food, drinks, sunscreen, a car, a small cooler to take your catch home with you, and a camera.

Bout Time Charters will welcome you, your friends, and family aboard a Federally Permitted 31’ Cape Horn. This is one of the bigger boats in the fleet. This is a clean, seaworthy boat that comes powered by a pair of 300 HP Suzuki engines. There is plenty of fishing space for up to 6 anglers.

The boat is outfitted with state-of-the-art navigational and fishfinding electronics, as well as other professional tools and accessories. Its Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor will hold you on the spot all day and the t-top will provide extra shade. All aboard!

I started fishing with my father when I was 3 or 4 years old. I immediately loved the whole feeling of being outdoors and enjoying all the cool things the world has to offer while fishing. There is so much more to fishing than holding a fish! I love all types of saltwater fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, free lining, sight casting, stealth approach, and even cruising.
