Going fast!

Soulwater Charters welcomes you aboard for a day catching awesome fish. Stay in the shallows, targeting big Bull Redfish, huge Trout, tasty Flounder, and other great inshore species. Up for more of a challenge? Head offshore, for a day pulling in Grouper, Snapper, Kingfish, and even battling Mahi Mahi and Sailfish!

No matter where you want to fish, you will find a variety of times and trip lengths to suit any schedule. More of a night person? No problem! Head out by moonlight. Sneaking through the shallows and targeting the big fish which come out after dark. Whatever you choose, you will be catching some tasty, hard-fighting fish and Captain Matthew will make sure you have great fun doing so!

The vessel you will be spending the day on is a 23’ Hydrasport center console. The boat was built in 2010 and has been loaded up with equipment to make sure you get the most out of your time on the water. The boat’s tower, GPS, and fishfinder combine to help lock on the best fish. Once in place, high-quality tackle and a choice of live bait or lures will have you bringing in the best of them.

Captain Matthew is a locally-born guide with a lifetime of experience fishing these waters. He is happy to welcome anglers of any age of experience aboard and will talk you through all the techniques you will be using on your trip.

So whether you are a complete beginner out for some fun with the family, or a seasoned pro looking to beat your personal best, Captain Matthew will make sure you leave with great memories as well as awesome fish!

Captain Matthew has lived and fished in Pensacola his whole life. He says he was born to do it, that's why he chose guiding as his career. He started running a professional charter service in order to share his love for the fish and fishing as a sport with other like-minded people. He loves taking novices out on the water and teaching them anything they want to know.
