Choctawhatchee Bay Fishing Charters

21997 US Highway 331 South
Santa Rosa Beach FL, United States

Choctawhatchee Bay Fishing Charters invites you for an unforgettable inshore fishing adventure out of Freeport, Florida. The charter is owned and operated by one of the best captains around, Captain Brad Bishop. At just 31 years old, he has spent 3/4 of his life on the water, working and fishing. He will use this vast knowledge and experience in guiding you to the best spots and fish.

The town of Freeport is conveniently located in the Choctawhatchee Bay which offers outstanding fishing year round. You can fish for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Founder, Cobia, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle. Depending on the season and the fish you want to target, Captain Brad will take you to the places he knows produce good amounts of that fish.

Captain Brad operates a 22-foot Sea King center console originally built in 2010. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, this boat is a beast on the water. It will get you to the desired fishing grounds quickly and in comfort. You will love the t-top as it provides the much needed shade in the hot Floridian Sun.

Choctawhatchee Bay Fishing Charters’ boat is equipped with all the USCG approved safety gear, electronics, and a wireless trolling motor for the extra shallow waters. Captain Brad’s number one priority is safety and putting meat in the boat.  He will provide the necessary fishing gear including rods, reels, terminal tackle, and a fishing license.

Captain Brad says: “Seeing our clients with the biggest smiles on their faces after hooking up on a big bull Red is priceless. We look forward to booking trips with everyone!”.
