Fishbonz Charters invites you to explore the beautiful water of Pensacola, Florida. Beginner to a seasoned angler, everyone is welcome to spend an enjoyable day. Join Captain Mike, a local professional, and create your own angling memories that will last a lifetime.

Check the bite in Pensacola Bay, Big Lagoon, and Escambia Bay. Head out to Escambia River and the world-renowned Pensacola Pass. Test yourself in light tackle sport fishing and come back to shore with an ice-chest full of outstanding catches.

Fishbonz Charters specialize in targeting Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, the most famous inshore species. As well as that, you can land Triggerfish, Mangrove Snapper, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Vermilion Snapper, and Little Tunny.

Your key to the best Pensacola adventure is the 19’ Hewes Bayfisher boat. Its single 115 HP Yamaha engine will power you to the hottest places and honey holes. The boat is outfitted with state of the art navigational and fish finding electronics, including a Lowrance GPS and a Down Scan Imaging. There are also other professional tools and accessories to save your time while searching for fish, such as an 80 Lb Motorguide Wireless Pinpoint Trolling Motor. All aboard!

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. If you want to catch fish with a fly, just let your captain know and he will provide you with quality fly fishing equipment. As well as that, the rates include the use of rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and fishing license. When you return to shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan.
