Reel Addiction Fishing Charters

With Reel Addiction Fishing Charters, the prolific waters of Pensacola Beach can be all yours. Enjoy a family-friendly adventure Florida-style with Captain Louis “Scooter” Porto.

Choose a fishing excursion that suits your needs. Introduce your kids to the art of fishing on a short “catch-and-release” trip. There is nothing better than seeing a smile on a young angler’s face when they reel in their first ever fish!

Spend your day exploring the calmer waters of the bay and passes and go for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and other species. Or venture up to 9 miles out in search of Red and Mangrove Snapper, Gag Grouper, Kingfish, Cobia, Amberjack, Bull Shark… and the list just keeps going! From slow trolling live hardballs for big King Mackerel and Redfish to bottom fishing trips for Snapper and Grouper, there is a trip for you.

The area’s wrecks and reefs, as well as the inshore waters, are ideal for any bottom fishing, light tackle, or fly fishing enthusiasts. With all the necessary gear, bait, tackle, and licenses provided, you will be able to tick a lot of species off your angling bucket list.

All you have to do is bring your food and drinks and hop onboard a 27’ Ameract. Its two 150 HP Suzuki engines will power you to the hottest grounds at a top speed of 40 knots. The boat is rigged with electronics, outriggers, a livewell loaded with bait, and professional accessories.

Reel Addiction Charters is your key to the finest fishing opportunities that the nearshore waters of Pensacola Beach have to offer. So book your trip now, and the crew will be ready when you are!
