Contact Front Charters

If you are looking for a great experience, then fishing with Contact Front Charters is the perfect fit for you. Captain Jeremy and Captain Johnny have both served in the Marine Corps, with 6 tours between them. These childhood friends understand the importance of being outside and making memories with loved ones. They will make sure you have a great day on the water together.

You will fish in a recently restored 24’ Blazer Bay boat. It can comfortably fit six people on board without crossing lines. It has all the navigational equipment you could ever want, as well as a trolling motor to sneak up on the fish. All gear and bait are provided, you just need to bring food and drinks with you.

These guys have a great ethos of encouraging kids to be more physical. For this reason, kids under 8 are exempt from the additional person cost. They want to help these kids make lasting memories, have loads of fun, and discover a great love of fishing. Although there is no minimum age on board, for kids under 8 or very petite children please let Capt. Jeremy know beforehand so they can get the right sized life vest in.

Contact Front Charters also offer 10% discounts for all those in the military or law enforcement – just bring along your ID on the day of your trip. The time Capt. Johnny and Capt. Jeremy spent in the military has had a huge impact on both of them – from Capt. Johnny’s prosthetic leg (which is now wrapped to look like a Redfish!) to the name of their charter company – “Contact Front” is what you call when you need help out on the frontlines of battle. After calling this out, your comrades come to you and help you out when you need it the most. This sums up these guys perfectly – they will be with you every step of the way on this trip.

If your sole purpose is to fill the freezer, this isn’t the trip for you. But if you are looking to learn something, have an amazing trip, and make memories that will last a lifetime, then this trip will be perfect for you.
