Background
capt scooter was born and raised on and around the waters of pensacola and he loves nothing more than to share his 20 plus years of knowledge with his clients. "At a very early age I knew this is what I wanted to do and never looked back" He's fished commercially as well as fishing many tournaments over the years. With experience in almost every different type of fishing over his career thus far definitely helps in his ability to put his customers on fish consistently. So let capt scooter take you on a fishing adventure you won't be disappointed!
Techniques
Our fishing techniques differ depending on the time of year and what we are targeting. But my preferred method for most of my charters would be live bait but we lure fish troll and bottom fish as well. We do both inshore and offshore fishing so we do use a lot of different styles of fishing. whatever's working best at the time for what species of fish we are targeting is what we will be doing. From slow trolling live hardtails for big kings to live shrimp for trout and reds we've got it covered!

Brought my boys (8 and 10) our for an afternoon trip. We had a blast! If the fish stopped biting, we took off to find where they were biting. Definitely would book again.

Captain Scooter called and offered us the opportunity to reschedule because it was a windy day and the water was a little choppy.  Because of our timeline with family in from out of town for the event, we chose to proceed.  We didn’t catch as many as we’d have liked, but still had a very good time and enough to cook for dinner.  Captain Scooter did his best to help us catch fish, and everybody had a great time.  There will always be off days fishing.  This happened to be one of them.  I’ll definitely schedule more trips with Captain Scooter.  I imagine just about anyone can make a fishing trip fun when the fish are biting like crazy.  He made it fun on an off day by giving us a lot of local history.  Even my wife and mother-in-law had a good time.

My wife and I had a great time with Scooter.  He knew where to find fish of all types and sizes, and we were bring them in from 3 different spots.  Great captain who did everything he could to give us a fun experience.  II wouldn’t recommend riding with anyone else but would chose Scooter first.

What a wonderful time. Thanks to Capt. Scooter we had a blast and caught fish. He took great exception and patience with the three boys we had. I would recommend him and his fishing guide service to anyone that comes to Pensacola. thanks again.
