Make the most of your time on beautiful Pensacola Beach and go fishing with Saltwater Fever.

Depending on the season, you might hook into Amberjack, Great Barracuda, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Flounder, Gag Grouper, King Mackerel, Blacktip Shark, Red Snapper, Vermilion Snapper, Grey Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Scamp Grouper, and whatever else takes the bait.

Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or free lining.  You’re free to keep the fish you catch, so long as regulations allow it. Plus, your captain will clean your catch for dinner at the trips conclusion.

Your excursion begins aboard a 22’ center console Robalo with a deep V hull, repowered in 2023 with a 250 Yamaha.  There’s a port-a-potty on board for your convenience, and everything else you’ll need for a productive day on the water.

Capt. Brandon will supply rods and reels for you, as well as cut-baits and lures. Live bait can be caught on the reef, or you can opt to spend a little time in the morning and pre-load the live-well.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for a good time! Have in mind that you will release some fish due to regulations. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more.

Capt. Brandon is happy to take kids 6 and older, so bring ‘em aboard and get the kids hooked while they’re young!  Also, remember to bring snacks you won’t find any offshore!

It’s always wise to bring sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen (non-spray), and anything you’d like to drink.

Give yourself something to look forward to and book a trip with Saltwater Fever!

My earliest memories are mostly standing near a pond with a cane pole snagging Channel Cats and Goggle Eyes. I was hooked at a very young age, daydreaming about the giant fish that were lurking in every roadside pond (something I still do). Around 8th grade my parents got a boat and bought me a subscription to Saltwater Sportsman. I proceeded to try every tip and trick inside and with so many types of fish and techniques for catching them, let's just say I caught the fever. I started deck-handing on a head boat in 2006 taking up to 45 passengers, 2008 I had jumped ship with my captain to a smaller walk-on vessel fishing 15, most recently I spent 8 years working on a private multi-passenger catering up to 28. I love taking people offshore to experience our beautiful waters and amazing fishery.
