Apalachee Bay Charters connects anglers to the beautiful and productive waters of the Forgotten Coast. Fishing there is a way of life. Have you ever dreamed of landing bull Redfish on topwater as the sun rises over the flats?

Apalachee Bay Charters specializes in inshore fishing trips that can be customized to meet your specific needs. Beginner to pro, everyone is welcome to join in the adventure.

Drift fish, sight cast, or anchor the boat and stalk whatever patrols the waters. Capt. William Davis will guide you through the waters of Wakulla, Taylor, and Franklin counties. He will put his talent to work for you to make sure you come back to shore with your very own catch of the day.

Go around the flats, rock piles, and seagrass beds in search of everything from Redfish and Spotted Seatrout to Flounder, Tripletail, Spanish Mackerel, Rockbass, and the occasional Cobia.

The quality fishing gear will be waiting for you onboard as well as bait. Capt. William will greet you with a warm welcome aboard his 20’ Lake and Bay flats boat. It has plenty of fishing space for you and two other people. The vessel’s reliable 250 HP Yamaha engine will power you to the hottest grounds quickly and safely. All aboard!

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and bait. Your catch will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. You will only need to bring a valid license, food, and drinks.

Captain William Davis grew up in Wakulla County. He has lived here his entire life and has been fishing these waters all that time. Capt.
