Blue Bay Outfitters

30 Heron's Watch Way
Santa Rosa Beach FL, United States

Blue Bay Outfitters invites you on an Emerald Coast fishing adventure with Captain James Whitaker. He operates the original light tackle and fly fishing guide service specializing in Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Tarpon, and wants to share it with you!

Captain James will take you out on a 20-foot Lake And Bay flats boat powered by a 225 HP Evinrude engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 65 knots. This monster speed means you will not waste a moment and will get to your fishing location very quickly. The boat is fully equipped with the necessary safety equipment such as life jackets, as well as electronics in the form of a GPS and a fishfinder.

The boat has a wireless trolling motor which is used to navigate the very shallow waters and not to spook the fish. It also contains a live well, an icebox, and snorkeling equipment which you can use for scalloping. Other species of fish you can target include Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Little Tunny, Spanish Mackerel, and Tripletail.

Blue Bay Outfitters will include everything you need on your full and half day trips: all the tackle, rods, reels, lures, and flies, unless of course you have your own outfit that you enjoy using. Let their friendly, professional guides give you a great learning experience and an unforgettable time on the water.
