All Out Fishing Charters – 24', Anarchy Fishing Charters, and Liquid Prescription Fishing Charter all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Okaloosa Island.

The most popular fish species you can target are Red Snapper, King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Mangrove Snapper. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Trolling, and Bottom Fishing. Wreck fishing, nearshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Always happy to introduce this beautiful island to new anglers, Okaloosa Island fishing charters will show you all the spots that put this fishery on the map. Located on Florida’s stunning Emerald Coast, Okaloosa Island forms a barrier between Choctawhatchee Bay and the plentiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Whichever one you choose to fish in, it’s going to be a trip to remember!

Newbies and families can cruise the inshore waters of the bay for Speckled Trout, Flounder, Redfish, and other tasty table fare. More experience under your belt? Head south to the nearshore reefs and wrecks of the Gulf for Snapper, Grouper, and Mackerel species among others. The Gulf also offers up some incredible offshore action, with Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish lurking in deep waters.

Inshore family trips are typically over in four hours. This allows for enough time to visit some popular spots, see what’s biting, and take home a mixed bag on a productive day. Reefs and wrecks often warrant more time, especially if you’re not aiming for the ones closest to the shore. Finally, offshore trips to the Gulf almost always require a full day. Don’t worry, your hard work will be handsomely rewarded out there.

The locals here have fishing in their blood. You’ll find plenty of capable captains and charters aimed at fishermen of all ages and skill levels. A popular starting spot is the boat ramp in Ross Marler Park – making this a good spot to begin your search. After getting there, choose your angling adventure and discover what this island has to offer!
 

Rules & Regulations

If you’re joining one of Okaloosa’s licensed charters for a trip to the fishing grounds, hooking your target is the only thing you need to focus on. Your captain will provide you with all the necessary licenses and information on fish seasonality and bag limits.

We would certainly try bottom fishing if we had more time, but trolling got us on a handful of Bonito which are fun to catch.

Honestly it depends on the person and their commitment to fishing. We could have easily done the 1/2 day tour, we knew our son wouldn’t make it that long so we booked the 3hr…. Which is closer to shore.

Hard to say what to recommend to folks who actually know what they're doing when it comes to deep sea fishing. None of us had ever gone before, and it was an absolute treat catching whatever was biting, and things were biting as the bait hit the bottom!

Our fishing trip with Tanner was beyond anything we had expected or imagined!!! The fishing was GREAT!!! We all 4 caught many different species and he was extremely knowledgeable of each. There was very little time without a fish on someone’s line!! We could not have asked for a better experience! He will be seeing us again!! It was definitely more like fishing with a long time friend than with just a charter captain!!!

Captain Cody and deckhand Riley were fantastic! We caught our limit on Mingos in less than an hour. Then we headed in to the bay and trolled for Spanish Mackerel. Caught a bunch of fish and had a blast! Highly recommend booking a trip of your own. We will definitely be booking again on our next Florida trip. Thank you so much again!

We had a great time on the water. It was a chilly day but we got out there right at sunrise and as soon as we got our poles in the water we were catching fish. I know that’s not how it always goes but we seemed to have perfect timing and location. We did the 3hour trip and caught 6 fish and a 5ft shark! Captain Tanner was friendly and had ton so of knowledge. We enjoyed our trip with him.

This charter was an awesome time, We went out and started catching fish within a few minutes of getting to the spot. I had requested to catch a shark on this trip so I could tag it and they helped make it happen. We came home with a large feast of delicious fish, even after releasing large red snapper that were not in season. .

We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Beautiful sunny day with no wind. Caught our limit thanks to Captain Cody and Graham. Some people’s pride in what they do shows in their equipment, the way they communicate and their character. Captain Cody and Graham have all these traits. Thank you for a memorable day. David & Trina

We took our son out for his first fishing trip. He had an absolute blast and caught the biggest catch of the day! The crew took great care of us and were patient with our 5 year old. Our kiddo hasn’t stopped talking about it and loved getting to carry in his cleaned fish to the restaurant to be cooked up. It was a great day out on the water. We will definitely be coming back next year!!
