Gulf Life Charters

Gulf Life Charters offers trips out of Pensacola Beach and surrounding areas. They offer a variety of fishing styles to suit your desires. You might enjoy bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Trigger fish and Amberjack or maybe you are looking for a trolling set up to go after bigger fish like Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel or Billfish.  Gulf Life Charters also loves some near shore fishing for Redfish, Speckled Trout & Cobia. And if you are looking for shark action, they do that too! Captain Jesse Johnson will be happy to take you out and put you on the fish. He’s been fishing the Pensacola area since 2007 and knows how to find ‘em and slay ‘em!

You will be fishing from a 26’ Twin Vee boat whose amenities include both outriggers and a trolling motor. It rides 6 with room for 4 to fish comfortably off the back. Powered by twin Yamaha engines, it makes short work of the ride to the fishing grounds and will get you in position with plenty of time to fish.

Captain Jesse is a great captain who has dreamed of this title since he was a little kid. He followed in his fathers footsteps who was also a Charter Captain. Some of the best times of Captain Jesse’s life has been on the water. The only thing he enjoys more than fishing is sharing his passion with others.

Let Gulf Life Charters take you out on your next fishing adventure!

About the Captain

I grew up just south of Tallahassee in the Big Bend where my father was a charter Captain for many years. As early back as I can remember, Dad was taking me out on the boat and sharing his love of fishing with me. Some of the best times of my life have been spent on the water. My beautiful wife also comes from a family who loves to fish and so often times, it becomes a family affair. Over the last 30 years I've learned to respect the ocean and how to keep my passengers safe on the water. I've realized the only thing I love more than fishing, is taking out others fishing. Fishing is a way of life for me. So it was only natural to finally live my dream of becoming a Charter Captain. I can't wait fish with you!

Biggest Trigger Fish

April 24, 2016
Everyone said that the fish we caught were the biggest triggers they have ever seen.
