According to customer reviews, Old Town Charters, Got'em Fishing Charters, and Beaver’s Guide Service are some of the most popular fishing charters in 30a. Full list of top fishing charters in 30a.

Old Town Charters, Got'em Fishing Charters, and Beaver’s Guide Service all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in 30a.

The most popular fish species you can target are Red Snapper, King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Amberjack. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling. Nearshore fishing, offshore fishing, and wreck fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The road may now be just 25 miles long, but locals still refer to pretty much the whole Panhandle as “just off the 30A.” From Pensacola to Fort Walton Beach, this road is the life and soul of the Emerald Coast. Renowned for its angling opportunities, it’s no surprise that you’ll find plenty of 30A fishing charters waiting to take you away – try not to lose concentration if you’re driving!
 
Wherever you go off the road, you’ll find the best the Panhandle has to offer. From the East Bay, through the Choctawhatchee, down to St. Andrew’s and the St. Joseph Bay, there’s no shortage of inshore fishing. Redfish, Trout, and Flounder can be found everywhere, while Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Sheepshead, and even Tarpon come at different times of the year. Head further south, and a scalloping or oystering trip may be in store.
 
All along the road, you’ll find charters ready to take you beyond the bays to the reefs and deep waters offshore. You’ll find the closest fishing grounds out of Mexico Beach but, no matter where you go, you’ll find a range of Snappers, Cobia, Kingfish, Amberjack, and many more. Head further out, and you can target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Tuna and Billfish in the deep!
 
There’s something for everyone when fishing along the 30A, with trips as short as two hours to the nearshore fishing grounds and as long as a few days offshore. Beginners and families can take advantage of half days, while keener anglers can get their fish on all day. 

 

Rules & Regulations

When fishing with a charter along the 30A, your fishing license will be covered, so that’s one less thing to worry about. Your professional captain will also be up to date with all the latest seasons and bag limits, so you can sit back and enjoy the fishing.

January
Inshore fishing can be great this time of year. Stay close to the coast and target smaller Redfish and Trout or head out a bit farther for some Triggerfish and Flounder. 
 
February
February can get really cold, but that doesn't mean that fishing can't be hot! Focus on Redfish and Trout in the bay, or venture out offshore for some Bonito and Mackerel. 
 
March
Spring is almost here, and that means that it's all about sight fishing for Cobia. You can also go for Vermillion Snapper and Mackerel nearshore, or try and catch some Bonito and Sheepshead in the bays.
 
April
Trolling for Kingfish offshore is a must in April, while bottom fishing for Vermillion Snapper and Amberjack in the Gulf can also be unforgettable. Go out with an experienced guide and make the most of it! 
May
Get ready for action, as May is the month of the abundance. Go after anything from Vermillion Snapper to Mahi Mahi, Triggerfish, Kingfish, and even Red Snapper, depending on the year's open season. 
 
June
Summer is all about targeting the biggest offshore A-listers! Go for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Kingfish, Bonito, and even Sailfish, if you're extra lucky. Vermillion and Lane Snapper are also abundant nearshore for a tasty treat.
 
July
The weather is hot, and so is the fishing action! You can target Trout inshore or venture out farther from the coast for some incredible offshore action. The sky's the limit wherever you go, so get your fish on! 
 
August
Reef fishing is amazing this time of the year, as you can pursue Amberjack and Kingfish, among many more nearshore. Beginners can stay on the calmer waters, however, where the Redfish bite is as good as ever.
September
Summer is going nowehere, with Ladyfish, Flounder, and Spanish Mackerel being caught close to shore, while Mahi Mahi are abundant in deeper waters. Prolong your summer with a 30A adventure!
 
October
October can bring winds on occasion, though Redfish, Trout, and Snapper fishing is still great inshore. You can also target Grouper, Mahi Mahi, and Flounder a bit farther from the coast, so there's always something biting!
 
November
Attention shifts inshore come November, with Redfish, Trout, and Flounder in the bays. You can also go for Sheepshead and other delicious fish without having to worry about bumping elbows with other anglers.
 
December
The weather can get cold, but that doesn't mean the fishing can't be great! Try exciting bottom fishing for Grouper, or stay inshore and target Redfish. Whatever you go after, you'll have plenty to keep you on your toes.

We have older children 10 and 13, I wouldn't recommend an offshore trip for younger kids it does take awhile to get to the fishing locations and if they aren't good swimmers I would stay more inshore. Bring plenty of water to drink, it gets hot and you need to stay hydrated. Wear shoes with good traction, as the boat can be slippery and be ready to get splashed if the water is choppy.

We had a party of 8, Captain Bob did an amazing job putting us on the fish, when it was time to pull up and move he never hesitated to tell us so. First mate or deck hand Jimmy was a true BAD ASS, the man knows how to fish and he's not afraid to share his knowledge, when it comes to chartered fishing this is the place to go, we caught our limit and still had plenty of time to just enjoy our time on the water. 10/10 highly recommend.

Capt. Chris and Jose knew where to find the fish. We started with a 10 pound King Mackerel and then proceeded to catch vermillion and red snapper. Jose was kept busy taking fish off our hooks and replacing the bait. There were six of us and we had a great time.

We wanted to do something different while being down in Florida. I surprised my husband with this fishing trip for our 15th wedding anniversary. Darius and Jim were nothing but great to us, for being our first time they showed us the ropes. Besides having to throw back the trigger fish because it wasn’t in season we had a great time! Thanks guys! 🙂
