Doin’ Better Inshore Experience is located in Navarre and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Daniel aims to tailor every trip to your specific needs, so let him know what you’re after! Depending on the trip and species, you’ll be using techniques like light tackle spinning. Light tackle makes this experience one of a kind, as you battle with the hardest fighting fish per pound in the area.

You’re looking at 3 to 5-hour trips, where you’ll usually go after the likes of Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, and Snapper, depending on the weather and time of year.

Your adventure begins on board a 17’ Mako boat that can fit a maximum of 2 anglers. The boat is fitted with an ice box and wireless trolling motor. All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. It’s up to you to use it as best you can. The captain will supply all the needed fishing licenses for your trip.

The price of your trip also includes complimentary drinks, but you’re welcome to bring your own. Please let the captain know if you have any questions or special requests.

Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Kids are welcome aboard, so you’re free to make it a family adventure.

    This is personally one of my favorite trips, in that we are strictly chasing giant fish. Come with me as we go explore the 3 mile bridge in Pensacola in search for a giant bull redfish. We have a chance to also catch some sharks certain times of year there are other species as well! The bridge offers a beautiful view of the skyline in Pensacola and will be the talk of your vacation! This is a chance to get that redfish of a lifetime!
