Background
Capt. Sean owns and operates Total Package Charters, a second generation charter business based in Pensacola, FL. He grew up fishing with his father, and started working as a deck hand at the age of 13. By the time he was 18, he had become a captain, taking over the charter business when his father retired. After graduating from the University of West Florida in Pensacola with a Marketing Degree, he chose to focus on his passion for fishing, and got his new fishing boat 'Total Package' in 2004.
Techniques
I prefer bottom fishing with dead and live bait. We work wrecks and natural bottom for consistent fishing action and table fare.

Went fishing on Wednesday, September 20, 2017

By far the BEST day of our trip. Captain Shawn never let us stay to long in one spot if the fish weren’t biting, but every time we stopped the fish were biting like crazy.  Jeremy, the deck hand, was the best. We had 10 people fishing at one time, I’m not sure how he did it but no one ever had to wait for help. Every time I needed something he was there before I turned around. He even told me the secret to catching the most fish…at one point I was catching fish every minute…I would highly recommend these two guys. It was well worth the money. We are already planning next year’s trip with Captain Shawn and Jeremy…

Tremendous experience!

I can’t speak highly enough for Capt. Sean and Jeremy. We caught a good variety of fish including: amberjack, triggerfish, red & vermillion snapper, barracuda, and a 5’ shark! Capt. Sean and Jeremy were professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. They also gave us the advice and assistance to land all of the fish listed above and gave everyone the chance to participate.

Clean boat with a good cabin and great music! We worked hard and had a lot of fun. Definitely a fantastic trip!

Highest ratings, to be sure!!

Great crew. Nice boat. Reels weren’t great but got the job done. We caught fish even though the sea was rough. Captain did a great job of keeping us over the fish in the middle of 5 foot swells. I recommend this charter.

Had a great day of fishing.  Both the captain & the 1st mate were most helpful- worked hard to ensure that all 11 of us enjoyed ourselves. 
My 15 year old son’s primary objective was to catch a shark- and boy did he get a big one.  One heck of a fight- thanks to 1st mate Jeremy for his help and advise getting the shark to the boat.  My son will tell that tale for years to come.
You will not be disappointed if you book with these guys

We had a great time! Capt Sean took us to where the fish were for sure… reeled them in as fast as we could bait the hooks. 9 of us fished and we came back with 83 keepers… vermillion snapper which was delicious tonight!

We had a great time caught our limit on red snapper, and a couple of sharks too! Would definitely recommend Capt. Sean and Sr. deckhand Jeremy always kept our hooks in the water.

Sean and Jeremy were first class. They met and exceeded all expectations. Would highly recommend booking a trip with them. All fish we caught was filleted and put in bags for us to take home.

This was a family fishing trip and we had an EXCELLENT experience. Mom, Dad, 4 college age kids, 15 year old boy and 13 year old boy. Captain Sean and his hand Jeremy were very knowledgeable and polite. We caught Red Snapper, Scamp Grouper, Amberjack and Trigger fish, which Jeremy cleaned meticulously and which we took to Paradis Restaurant very near to the dock where they cooked some of the fish for us. Talk about FRESH! I highly recommend TOTAL PACKAGE Charters. Happy fishing!
