Tuckered Out Charters - Floundering

Bay Avenue
Apalachicola FL, United States

Tuckered Out Charters invites you on a special trip in the nighttime in the productive waters of Apalachicola, Florida. The charter is operated by Captain Kit Mashburn who has fished the local waters of Apalachicola for more than 20 years. He is an avid fisherman who possesses first class gigging and conventional fishing skills and is a good teacher to first-timers.

This charter mainly focuses on nighttime fishing for Flounder using the gigging poles and boat lights. They say that if you have not tried Flounder gigging at night, you have not fished!

Captain Kit can also take you out during the daytime when you can target Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon. Each of these species can be found in abundance in the waters of Apalachicola Bay and flats, the Apalachicola River, and the Saint George Island sound.

Tuckered Out Charters will take you out on a 14-foot flat-bottom skiff built for the shallow waters of Apalachicola Bay and the natural habitat of Flounder. The boat has ultra strong lights that will light up the seabed allowing you to spot the Flounder which lie camouflaged on the bottom of the bay.

The boat has a portable GPS and the necessary safety equipment, as well as an icebox for the catch and a live well. You will have the fishing gear available including the gigging poles, conventional rods, reels, tackle, and baits.

Captain Kit provides a fishing license, water, and a fish cleaning service at the end of the trip, so all you have to bring is some positive energy!
