Rock Bottom Charters - Gulf Breeze

Shoreline Drive
Gulf Breeze FL, United States

Rock Bottom Charters runs fishing trips out of Gulf Breeze that let you explore the finest of inshore fishing these fisheries offer, and beyond! Whether you’re a family on vacation, a group of novice anglers eager to get Redfish, or a hardcore fisher going after his dream catch, Capt. Gordon will make sure you have a trip worth the while.

You will explore numerous fishing opportunities aboard a 24’ Skeeter center console that can take up to six anglers. She is powered by a 350 HP Yamaha engine and features Garmin navigational gear, a Minn Kota wireless trolling motor, an assortment of fishing gear you can use, as well as a T top, and enough seating space. The boat is fast and reliable to weather offshore waters but flexible enough to get you to hidden inshore spots.

Capt. Gordon has been fishing his whole life and operates the whole region. His trips attract numerous repeat customers, and for a good reason – one look at the photos of catches and you will see why so many anglers book a trip with him. If someone can get you to massive Bull Redfish, it’s Capt. Gordon. But that’s not all you’ll catch here. There are also Speckled Trout, Flounder, Cobia, as well as Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, and Mahi.

All the fishing gear you need will be waiting for you onboard. The rates include the fishing license, so all you need to bring are food and drinks, sunblock, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera. These trips work for kids and adults alike, so if you want to give your kids a trip to remember, book on time.

Invite your friends, pack your belongings, and come chase that fish!

I have a passion for fishing and sharing this passion with others. I fish both inshore and offshore. I love to have kids on my boat and teaching them not only about the fish they catch, as well as the water ways they are fishing and the local history.

Captain Doug did a great job keeping our 11 and 6 year old enjoying the trip, while I attended our seasick child. Dad got to keep catching! He also stopped and let my little ones check out the sea turtles!!

Captain Doug did everything to accommodate us. He was excellent with my grandson!  We caught several fish we could not keep, but he stayed until we caught enough for supper.

My 16 y/o son and I had NEVER, EVER caught a fish. We booked a trip with Captain Gordon based on excellent reviews from experienced anglers. Of course we were nervous since we were big time Newbies. Well this man is a fish magnet. He was an excellent teacher! Within 30 minutes of the voyage, we were experts at baiting our own hooks with live bait and 1 hour into our trip my teenager had caught 3 sheepsheads and I had 1 sheepshead and a grey Snspper.  We they went to deep open waters where we proceeded to catch and release over 25 red snappers! This was easier than shooting fish in a barrel. I even bagged a couple of nice grouper. But the best part was feeding the small catch to 3 dolphins that were following us. Captain Gordon showed me how to clean and filet our catch but actually did most of the work. We brought home enough filets to feed our large family and we were treated to some of the best seafood the next day (Friday) I ever tasted. I paid for a 4 hour morning trip but we easily spent 5+ hours with him. His humor, patience and love for the sport are second to none. We can’t wait to go fishing with Captain Gordon again!!!!
