If you’re a more experienced angler and want to keep your skills on point, there are trips available that will challenge your strength and fishing mastery. Amberjack fishing with Capt. Buddy has one of the best pulls outside billfishing.

Not only does he know how to get you on the fish, but he has a comfortable and reliable boat to take you there.

His 46’ Newton has a 22’ beam, which means that you will have plenty of space to angle in peace and soak in the view. She can take up to 28 people on board and has twin 450 HP Cummins engines to fly you to the top fishing spots.

When you do get to them, you will have strong and reliable fishing equipment to reel in your catch. Rods, reels, tackle, lures and live bait are all provided for you, so you only need to worry about getting that fish into the boat.

Whether you’re a family that’s fishing for the first time, or the most experienced of anglers, Capt. Buddy and his first mate will show you a good time and help you hook your next great catch.  The first mate is at your disposal at all times during the trip and he works for tips, so gratuity is much appreciated.

Come and join the fun and excitement of a truly great Gulf Coast fishery with Reel Eazy Charters! You will never forget the moment when you first hear the cry “Fish On”, and you begin to fight your trophy catch.

Before becoming a boat captain, I enjoyed fishing the waters of Pensacola. I had spent a lot of my early years diving and spearfishing which honestly gave me a unique perspective of the reefs, reef fishing, and fish behavior. I know how Amberjack act and how to reel them in despite their acrobatic tendencies. I can find Triggerfish and Groupers easily, and I teach my crew these tricks of the trade. Also by knowing the behavior of fish, we know what we need to do to reel them in! I guess you could say, I learned to understand fish in their world, and that has helped me in sharing this sport with my customers.
