Strictly Business Fishing Charters

Strictly Business Fishing Charters welcomes you to Santa Rosa Beach, a calm and pristine angling destination in Florida. You can choose from a wide range of fishing spots, including inshore and nearshore waters, offshore grounds, the backcountry, as well as reefs, flats, and wrecks. Captain Nick Tate is going to make sure you have a fun and successful fishing trip you’ll remember for a long time.

Your trip starts on a restored 23’ Cape Horn bay boat that can take up to 4 guests. It runs on a 225 HP Yamaha engine, features electronic navigation, and uses a wireless trolling motor. You’ll also have access to snorkeling equipment and you can use the onboard livewell and ice-box.

Santa Rosa Beach offers you a great number of species you can catch. To name just a few, there’s Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Mangrove Snapper, as well as Permit, Red Grouper, Black Drum, and many more. The fishing techniques you’ll use to catch them include bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as fly fishing. Whether you’ll keep or release your catch is totally up to you.

The captain will supply you with everything you’ll need for the trip, including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses. He will also clean and bag your catch free of charge. You just bring some food and drinks before you leave.

Come to Santa Rosa Beach and have a wonderful fishing experience with Captain Nick and Strictly Business Fishing Charters!

Member since February 2021
Captain Nick was born and raised in Rome, Georgia. He graduated from Rome High School and joined the Electrical Union in Atlanta, Georgia where he completed a 5-year apprenticeship program that allowed him to become a third-generation electrician. He quickly worked his way up through the electrical field and into electrical construction management. However, he wanted to do more. His love and passion for the Emerald Coast started when he was younger and it was the place he always knew he had to be. He decided he wasn’t getting any younger, so he packed up his life and made the 6-hour trip south for good.
