Make the most of your time on Florida’s Emerald Coast and go fishing with Small Wave Charters. Captain Sean will be your guide in and around Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, and Navarre Florida, giving you access to local experience.

Species like Speckled Trout, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Flounder, Tarpon, and more are in the cards, depending on the season.

Capt. Sean is an enthusiastic fly fishing guide. The skiff is set up with top-of-the-line fly fishing gear from brands like 3-Tand reels, Forgotten Coast Outfitters, Sage, Orvis, and other top companies. All flies are provided, with most being tied by Sean to match local baits. Small Wave Charters also offers light spinning tackle trips (LT) with all lures and live bait provided.  All tackle is from reputable manufacturers.

Small Wave Charters is a kid-friendly charter service, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! Child-sized life vests are available on board if you elect to bring a kid along for the adventure. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

You’ll step aboard a 17’ Ankona Advent skiff that can carry up to 2 adults, can carry up to 3 people if children are on the trip, please reach out to me to verify the number of people before booking. It has everything you need for a productive day on the water. Capt. Sean will provide rods and reels for you, along with lures, and live bait if required for the day.

There’s no need to buy a fishing license, just show up ready for some fishing! Have in mind that you may release some fish due to regulations. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish. A few items to bring include sunblock (non-spray), a hat, and sunglasses. There will be water provided on board, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now’s the time to experience fishing on Florida’s Emerald Coast for yourself, with Small Wave Charters!

Member since July 2023
Captain Sean Lincicome grew up in Oklahoma where he learned to fly fish for multiple types of fish starting at the age of 10. Once Sean turned 19 he left Oklahoma and joined the Air Force and an Aircraft Mechanic, while serving Sean fished in many of the countries that he went to. During his 20 year service he found that he was teaching people how to fish and most of the time it was fly fishing. Sean started pursuing his passion to guide and became a licensed captain. Sean is passionate about fly fishing and is driven by getting other anglers hooked up on multiple species and seeing the joy in them when they hook their 1st fish or their 1000th fish on a fly rod.
