Partner up with Cool Change Inshore Fishing to experience the excellent inshore bite Florida has to offer! Captain Joe Nash runs his light tackle fishing service from late August all the way through the Memorial Day weekend and he’s happy to take you to where the fish hide.

You will cast your line for a variety of species – from Speckled Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, and Black Snapper to Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Gafftop Catfish, and Bluefish. Not only are all of these inshore superstars challenging to catch, but some of them make for fabulous table fare too.

All licenses, tackle, and bait are included in the trip’s price, so you don’t have to worry about anything, except maybe your favorite snacks and drinks. Capt. Joe will take care of everything else, it is up to you to enjoy the fishing action.

Your ride for the day, as well as a reliable fishing platform, is a 24’ Kenner sportfisher with the capacity to take out up to 6 anglers eager to explore the inshore waters around Orange Beach. She’s rigged with a 150 HP Yamaha engine, which makes her efficient in different conditions.

Rods and reels will wait for you on board, as well as lures and live bait, depending on what you will need. If you’re pursuing spooky fish in the shallow waters, there’s a wireless trolling motor to hum your way to the best catch.

Going on a trip with Cool Change Inshore Fishing is a great way to introduce your wife and the kids to fishing and create some great memories for the whole family. With a good boat and a friendly guide like Capt. Joe, you’re in for a fun and bountiful expedition you’ll want to repeat!

I started commercial fishing the bays at the age of 12, and have since worked on the water, running all types of vessels. I have been in the charter fishing business full-time since 1987, and I have been USCG licensed since 1982. I have fished over 4,000 paid charters and still love to see people catch fish! Our crew takes pride in our boat, customers, and catch. I would like to have the opportunity to take you and your family, or a group of friends, fishing!
