Sunshine Fishing Charters

200 Northeast Eglin Parkway
Ft. Walton Beach FL, United States

Sunshine Fishing Charters are a locally owned and operated fishing charter service for up to six people. Offering both inshore and Gulf fishing trips, they will help you land the fish of your dreams out of Ft. Walton Beach, Florida.

You will be fishing out of a spacious 22 ft Cape Horn boat that is powered by a 225 HP Honda engine to give it a maximum speed of 35 knots. The boat’s T-Top will provide shade from the sun, while its large casting area on the bow will give you plenty of room to hook your target fish. With a live bait tank on board as well as GPS, fishfinder, and a VHF radio, the boat is well equipped to put you on the fish.

During your trip you could fish the bays for Redfish and Trout or travel further out to fish for Red Snapper and Grouper in the Gulf. All the live bait and lures you will need are included in the price of the trip, as are high quality rods, reels, and tackle, so all you need to bring is yourself and any snacks and beverages you might want during the trip.

We had an amazing four hours fishing. We moved multiple times to try and get the best fishing possible. Our captain was patient with my lack of fishing skills and his ultimate goal was for us to have a great time! If we come back to this area we will most certainly book with him again

Had an awsome time! Caught a lot of fish and Captian Jordan cleaned and packaged for us. Went back to condo and had some for lunch! Will definitely look him up again when back this way.
