Florida Boy Adventures

(50) Going fast!

Explore the pristine waters of Florida’s Emerald Coast with Florida Boy Adventures. Specializing in fishing flats and backcountry, this charter service will introduce you to the variety of fish species and stunning wildlife this area has to offer.

Your trip will be spent aboard a 22’ Sabalo skiff that can take up to 6 people plus the guide out for a day on the water. This boat is specially designed for fishing the shallow waters of Florida and features a poling platform and a trolling motor to get you to the best fishing spots without scaring the fish. On board, you will find a spacious livewell filled with bait to help you entice the fish to bite your hook. If you would rather fish with artificial lures or fly, you will also find all the necessary equipment on board the boat.

Your trip will be spent fishing and/or sightseeing in and the bountiful Choctawhatchee Bay. Captain Hunter Ray has been fishing the local waters all his life and will guide you expertly towards your target species, whether that is a Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, or Sharks.

Florida Boy Fishing Charters can arrange charters from Santa Rosa Beach or Panama City Beach, depending on your wishes. They provide all the gear, bait and lures you will need for your trip, and will also clean and bag your catch for you at the end of the day. Just bring some light snacks and sunscreen and get ready to go fishing!

A passionate outdoorsman, Captain Hunter Ray grew up fishing the Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. His family has been on the water for generations, and Captain Hunter was introduced to the fishing business at an early age. As he grew up, he spent countless hours working as a deckhand for his family’s shrimping business, which gave him a thorough knowledge of the local waters and all their inhabitants. Nowadays, he translates this knowledge to his clients by providing fun local inshore fishing trips that stand out because of his local knowledge and family friendly attitude.
