Scout About Charters is a family-oriented company, located on the beautiful waters of Port St Joe, Florida, and operated by Captain Scooter. With its remote fishing spots, rich marine life, and stunning coastline, that area is ideal for friends and family. Kids are very welcome, and the more the merrier!

You will be sailing aboard their newly uphauled 21-foot skiff boat, powered by a 115 HP Yamaha SHO engine. Equipped with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio, the vessel is air-conditioned and is rigged with an anchoring system. There is also a live bait tank and an ice-box. The boat can cater up to six anglers on board.

Scout About Charters offers a lot of various trips to choose from. You will be able to go inshore, sail up to ten miles nearshore, fish the flats, shallow wrecks, and backcountry. From four to six hours fishing, each trip can be customized to your needs and personal preferences. You will target a variety of fish species, including Speckled Trout, Redfish, Pompano, Flounder, Tarpon, Cobia, King Mackerel, and Tripletail. A Shark Fishing adventure will see you staying in the bay area, where the Captain usually catches from 2 ft to 4 ft Sharks. During the scallop season, you will be able to enjoy a day out on the water hunting for those creatures.

It does not matter whether it’s your first time on the water or you are a pro – Captain Scooter is great with any angler. He especially enjoys teaching kids and putting them on their first ever fish!

The trip of your choosing will include rods, reels, fishing licenses, live bait, and lures, and well as snorkeling equipment. Your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip.

I'm from Port St Joe and have been fishing these waters since I was a kid. I offer a fun fishing experience and a wealth of information about the area. Kids are welcome. My absolute favorite fishing style is Wade fishing. We catch our bait then go to a spot and get out of the boat and canvas the area. It's great for the hot summer days and kids can swim and play while the fishermen walk off to hunt monsters. With parties larger than 4, this is the style of fishing that is the best - less boat noise. But I also love to sneak out of the bay and go get those King Mackerel.
