Big’Un Charters is your winning ticket for a day of making memories in the great outdoors of Apalachicola, Florida. Captain Greg “Big’Un” Kembro is your guide for the day, and you can count on him to show you a great time in this little piece of paradise. Bring the kids, grandparents, and pets – everyone is more than welcome aboard!

Your trip will take place aboard a spacious 24’ Proline dual console boat, which provides a stable fishing platform for both large and smaller groups. It’s powered by a single 250 HP Evinrude engine that can reach a top speed of an impressive 45 knots. It’s a versatile vessel that is great for both fishing inshore as well as heading offshore when Red Snapper season hits.

Some of the fish species you’ll find in the inshore waters include the likes of Redfish, Seatrout, Tripletail, and Pompano. If you decide to head further out, you can look forward to Kingfish, Cobia, Sheepshead, and Red Snapper (when in season). Capt. Greg will do his best to tailor the trip to your individual needs and fishing preferences.

He will also provide you with all the necessary gear you’ll need for the trip, including rods, reels, and terminal tackle. The only thing you need to do is pack a pair of polarized sunglasses, along with some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined. After that, you’ll be ready to jump aboard and make some memories together!

Join Big’Un Charters and have a fishing expedition you won’t soon forget in the waters of Florida! in

I am a third generation Captain and I have a son that is the 4th generation fisherman now. I have a great love for the outdoors that God has given us to enjoy, and the best office in the world. Sometimes it's hot or wet or cold but it's still the best office! I love to fish with people, some I have been fishing with for 35/40 years, some are out on their first trip in the saltwater! I love to see children go out for their first trip, and there are those that have been with me many times who now bring their children. I wish I could make every day a great weather day, but I am not that good so I do try to make every day a great experience. Come see me and let's make some memories together!
