Bar Hop’n Charters offers amazing fishing trips along and around Florida’s Forgotten Coast. Operating out of Port Saint Joe, they are perfectly placed to take advantage of the relative peace and quiet of the area. They also run eco-tours to let you take in the beautiful scenery.
Visit uninhabited islands, and bask in the warm Florida sunshine. Captain Shawn Chalker has been fishing in the area for over 5 decades. He’s ready to show you all the secret spots and honey holes, and make sure your day is as productive as possible.
You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Pathfinder center console powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. It is a hardy and reliable boat perfect for zipping around the bays and flats, while still stable enough to go a little further out.
The boat comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder to pinpoint the very best fishing spots, and an anchoring system to keep you on them once you’re there. You will also be supplied with everything you will need for your day’s fishing, including fishing licenses for all on board.
Capt. Shawn has an emphasis on flexibility, and as such, he’ll provide the equipment for a wide range of fishing techniques, such as light and heavy tackle, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, and spinning. He’ll also provide a choice of live bait and lures, whatever you prefer.
While out on the waters you have the choice of hitting the bays and flats for Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, and Flounder, or going further out to target some Bluefish and Tripletail, or a bit of both – it’s up to you!
Explore the untouched nature of Florida with Bar Hop’n Charters, and have an adventure of a lifetime!
