Come and enjoy some of the finest fishing on Florida’s Panhandle with Captain Kenny Way. Based out of the beautiful Pensacola Beach, Captain Kenny of Reel Way Fishing Charters offers inshore trips in the local bays, as well as nearshore trips in the open ocean.

Captain Kenny’s boat is a versatile 27 ft Ameracat center console that has a shallow draft for accessing skinny water at the same time as being big enough to fish off the beaches for larger species. Offering a fast, dry ride, the boat features a T-Top for shade and has plenty of storage on board for all your belongings. It is powered by twin 150 HP Mercury engines to get you to the fish fast, and features a trolling motor and an anchoring system to keep you close to them. With a full range of electronics and safety gear on board, the boat is ready to take you on the fishing adventure of a lifetime.

During your trip you will have the chance to try out a variety of fishing styles to fish for a range of local species, such as Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Snappers, Kingfish, and Sharks. Captain Kenny carries rods and reels by well known brands Penn and Shimano, as well as a variety of artificial lures and live bait caught before the trip, so that you can have the best chance of having an exciting day out on the water. Fly fishing equipment can also be provided - please inform the captain if you would like to use this method at least a day prior to the trip date.

All the tackle, bait, and lures you will need throughout your trip are included in the price, and the captain will also provide fishing licenses for your whole group. On top of that, once your trip has finished he will happily clean and fillet any fish you decide to take home at the end of the day.

Captain Kenny Way has been fishing the waters around Pensacola Beach since he was a kid. His dream to become a captain of charter boats came true five years ago and ever since then he has been guiding his guests around the local inshore and offshore waterways, sharing his passion for the fish and their habitat. His favorite fishing technique is stalk hunting Cobia, as these great tasting fish are some of the most exciting to reel in.
