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’ Tran Sport Boats catamaran, powered by a single Suzuki 200 HP 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 6 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!

Fished where we could as we waited for the wind to lighten up yesterday afternoon. Caught a few fish till the time was right to try for some legends. We cruised out to where I wanted to go. Dropped a few choice baits. Within 15 minutes, she was hooked into a hoss on light tackle... man, what a battle as that rascal made some long, hard runs. Initially, she thought she got broke off. Didn’t sound right as I knew which way the fish was swimming. Had her wind faster till she caught up to him! Awesome time and I managed to get some video footage before having to turn off camera. Snapped a few shots and released a healthy redfish. I was glad to be able to finally share this location with my wife. And happy she caught another big boy! Approximately 10 minutes later, I got bit on a special rod and reel (my Dad had it custom made for me for Christmas in 1990... it’s made to get big fish up and away from structure). Getting a little carried away here, but rest assured I would not have landed that fish on light tackle. Several times during our battle, I felt him run into the structure. Numerous hard charges towards the structure and i finally managed to get him next to the boat. My wife netted him. Once I saw him, instantly, I knew she was going to have her hands full picking up the net! That red was unique in that his tail was massive and shaped different than other big reds I’ve had aboard. Folks, i love doing what I do and welcome all!
