USA Ultimate Shoreline Adventures offers professional fishing trips on the stunning waters of Pensacola. Right at the tip of the Panhandle, Pensacola offers a unique opportunity to fish inshore in its wealth of bays, keys, and islands, as well as being a gateway to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Captain Mike Mcgahan has 20 years of experience in both types of water and is just the man to guide you.

You’ll be cruising these rich waterways on a 22’ Sea Fox Viper center console boat, powered by a 200 HP Yamaha outboard motor. While this will ensure a fast and smooth ride out to the deep, the wireless trolling motor at the front of the boat ensures that you can quietly sneak up on your fish in the skinny waters too.

A fishing charter with the crew will have you chasing Redfish, Red Snapper, Triggerfish, King Mackerel, and Cobia. Trips include the use of rods, reels, and terminal tackle, lures and live bait, as well as free water. The crew will also clean and bag your catch at the end of the trip, setting you up for a delicious dinner at home.

The different types of fishing available mean that the trips are suitable for all ages, and Capt. Mike prides himself on creating a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for all groups. He’ll lend a hand to the younger ones needing some tips, or will let the more experienced get on with it at the most lucrative spots. There’s something for everyone here, so heed the call and step aboard!

Join USA Ultimate Shoreline Adventures and explore some of the most productive waters under the Floridian sun!
