Welcome to Fort Walton Beach and its gorgeous sea view. Aside from the beautiful beaches, the area has great fishing potential. So when you drop by, be sure to contact Fishing DJ Charters - RSII. Captain Philip Rainey will take you on a fishing adventure and he’ll share his knowledge and passion for fishing.

You’ll be cruising the area on board the Grady White, center console model from 2020. It is 33’ and it can take on groups of 4 guests per trip. The boat is fitted with a double Yamaga engine that can reach the top speed of 43 kn. You’ll be going from one hot spot to another in no time. For your maximum fishing experience, there’s fishfinding equipment available, and you can use the outriggers.

The charter covers nearshore and offshore areas that include reef and wreck locations. The fish bites all year round, but not all species are constantly available. So check with the crew which fish is in season. During winter you’ll most likely encounter Amberjack, while in summer you can target Mahi Mahi, Grouper, and Red Snapper. You can go after your catch with several techniques like light and heavy tackle, trolling, and drift fishing.

Be sure to acquire your Florida fishing license as the charter doesn’t cover it. As for the fishing gear, lures, and bait, they will be waiting for you on board. For your comfort, the crew offers bottled water as refreshments, and you can use the onboard toilet. Families with children are welcome. IF you end up catching your fish, you can keep it. What’s more, the crew will help you clean it and bag it.

Have yourself a memorable adventure with Fishing DJ Charters - RSII.

I have been fishing my whole life from the age of 5. I used to go fishing with my dad for Largemouth Bass and Catfish in the Tennessee River and on Kentucky Lake. I fished for Striped Bass in Lake Cumberland, Kentucky, and in San Francisco Bay after I joined the military. I even picked my military assignments based on where the best fishing opportunities were located. Besides the Striped Bass in San Francisco, I also fished for Salmon, Halibut, and Sturgeon. I took assignments in Washington State so I could fish for Steelhead Trout and King Salmon, and I went to Alaska to fish for King Salmon and "Barn Door" Halibut. I retired from Hawaii where I fished for Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Sailfish, and Marlin to name a few. I spent 28 years in the US Army and I traveled the world. When I was in Okinawa, Japan I fished for Tuna and Mahi-mahi. In Germany, I fished for Trout mostly and Carp on occasion. But my favorite fishing has been right here in the Gulf of the Emerald Coast.
