Fish On Florida Charters - Bayport

Fish On Florida will take you on an exciting fishing adventure in Bayport, Florida that you’ll never forget. The town of Bayport is famous for the scalloping and excellent fishing and you will experience this first hand. The charter is operated by Captain Woody Hinson who has been fishing since he was a little boy and who loves all marine life. He works to preserve the fisheries by promoting and practicing catch and release fishing.

You’ll fish aboard a 24’ Mako 2400 center console boat, built in 1975, and restored in 2016. She is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. It is speedy and sound on the water, and will get you to your fishing grounds with ease. There’s a Hummingbird Helix 9 SI DI GPS, a Hummingbird fishfinder, a Minn Kota I pilot wireless trolling motor, and all the safety equipment as per USCG guidelines on board.

The area is well-populated with species such as Groupers, Snappers, Snook, Tarpon and other species that call the local waters home. Scalloping is huge here as the climate and the seabed suits the scallops perfectly, and they are mostly caught between June and September. You can wear a mask and fins, and snorkel in these crystal clear waters to collect your own scallops.

Trips are geared to the whole family and you’re encouraged to bring the young ones along to get them hooked on fishing, or take them scalloping during the season. Capt. Woody will give everyone a lesson on conservation, and will teach anyone who wants how to fish. Get down to Bayport and hop aboard Fish On Florida Charters for an unforgettable experience.

I’ve been fishing my whole life and running charters on the Gulf coast for over 10 years. When I was a small boy my family fished all the time. Being raised in the country we had streams, rivers, and lakes all around us. I spent all my free time either fishing or hunting. The best part of running charters is my clients and their families. I have had the honor and pleasure of being part of a lifetime of memories with them. From their first catch to their biggest. From avid anglers to beginners, I enjoy teaching as well as learning from them. Every catch is a catch of a lifetime! Time on the water is time well spent!
