Rock Bottom - Galvez Landing

Rock Bottom Charters will take you around the waters of Pensacola to explore numerous inshore honey holes and offshore reefs and wrecks. You can target anything from massive Redfish, Trout, and Flounder inshore to Grouper, Amberjack, Mackerel, and Mahi offshore. No matter how skilled you are, Captain Doug will make sure you have the trip of a lifetime.

These fisheries are productive for the better part of the year and you will have a knowledgeable captain by your side to help you out. Capt. Gordon has been fishing for years and knows these waters well. His mission is not just to put you on fish, but to make your day on the water unforgettable.

You will find Capt. Gordon at the helm of his 24’ Skeeter center console. She is fitted with a 300 HP Yamaha outboard and can reach speeds of up to 45 knots. The boat is equipped with Garmin navigational electronics and features a Minn Kota wireless trolling motor, a live well, an ice box, as well as a T top, and safety gear. Up to six anglers can come along and they will have a range of fishing equipment available for use.

Depending on how far you want to go and what you want to catch, you could be fishing within minutes from the dock or spend some more time reaching the offshore hotspots. The boat is fast and reliable and you will be fishing in comfort.

When packing for the trip, make sure to bring food and drinks, as well as a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, a camera, and medication against sea sickness, especially if you’re fishing offshore for the first time. The captain will supply all the fishing gear, tackle, bait, and the fishing license.

Get your friends and kids, and come have a blast chasing the fish of your dreams!

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.
