Explore Florida’s Choctawhatchee Bay and nearby Emerald Coast for some of the best inshore fishing around with Rising Son Expeditions and Captain Trey Senterfitt! He’s a local pro who works hard to earn your trust and business and enjoys building friendships with returning clients. Whether you’re a family with children or a group of fishing buddies looking for a productive day out, Rising Son Expeditions has got you covered.

Hop aboard a 22’ Blue Wave 2200 bay boat, powered by a single Yamaha 250 SHO outboard. She’s equipped with a spot lock trolling motor, top-notch electronic fish finding equipment, 2 10’ power poles, and a trusted arsenal of artificial lures and cast nets for catching live bait. This is the ideal vessel for 4 anglers who all want to fish at the same time.

There are a ton of legendary Florida inshore fish to go after, including a healthy supply of Redfish, Black Drum, and Trout year-round. In the winter and early spring, you’ll hook into a ton of delicious Flounder and Sheepshead too! Choose to explore the nearby Choctawhatchee River instead and there’s plenty of Bass and Trout to stock that cooler with.

Hooking your targets is made easy with gear provided by Capt. Trey. Onboard, there are Daiwa reels with rods and tackle to match, and for targeting those larger game fish, he’s also got several heavy-duty Penn Reels. If you run out of bait, stop by one of the many legal bait traps Capt. Trey has in the Bay and stock up!

There’s no need to pick up a fishing license if you’re doing saltwater fishing but if you plan on exploring the River you will need to get a freshwater license. Returning customers should also get in touch with Capt. Trey to inquire about special discounts!

Pack your drinks, snacks, and sun protection and get ready for an epic day of fishing in Santa Rosa Beach with Rising Son Expeditions!

I was raised around my father’s marina and fish camp on Black Creek, which is located between Santa Rosa Beach and Freeport, FL. Early on, I was excited to see what folks brought in. Then I started fishing on his dock hoping to catch fish as big as the ones brought in. After some success, I began to understand that this was something I could do on my own and I was hooked! Later, as a young boy, I was allowed to take the boat out on my own. Often times, I was invited to go along with some of the best fishermen and learn from them. During my downtime, I would rent VCR tapes and watch the pro’s how-to videos. Though times have changed, especially with technological advancements, I still find myself watching them from time to time. One thing remains constant: the more I watch and learn, the more driven I am to locate and catch more fish, especially the big ones! The best part of it all, I cast my burdens and cares away before the end of each day!
