Deep Sea Fishing in Santa Rosa Beach

Want to explore the Gulf of Mexico’s incredible offshore angling opportunities and avoid the crowds at the same time? It’s time for you to experience what deep sea fishing in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida has to offer. 
 
Located along the Panhandle region’s Emerald Coast, this small gem is usually overshadowed by the neighboring fishing villages of Destin and Panama City. If you prefer your big game fishing with a side of peace and quiet, however, Santa Rosa Beach is calling your name!
 
Deep sea fishing in Santa Rosa Beach can mean two things. Many charters here advertise deep sea trips that’ll see you bottom fishing the area’s reefs for huge Red Snapper (when in season!), and other Snapper and Grouper species. The reefs are also home to hard-fighting Cobia, so mix up your bottom fishing with some trolling if you’d like to target them. 
 
If your idea of deep sea fishing involves battling big game such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and more, you’ll also find captains willing to take you out to deeper waters. You’ll have to invest plenty of travel time, though! 
 
On a tight schedule? Head to the nearby fishing hotspot of Destin, around a 30-minute drive from Santa Rosa Beach. It provides direct access to “The Edge,” a deep drop in the Gulf’s waters only 23 miles from shore, and it’s full of big game fish. 
 
Charter captains in Santa Rosa Beach will make sure you’re decked out with rods, reels, bait, tackle, and a valid fishing license. All you need to bring is plenty of energy, and your best game face. Get ready for an unforgettable deep sea angling adventure!

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Santa Rosa Beach

Unusual in that there had just been a hurricane nearby, but I would say a knowledgeable guide makes all the difference. I tried some surf casting in my own and about got beat to death BY the surf!

I would suggest going in the morning. As the day goes on, it gets hot so be prepared.

It’s fun being out there early in the morning but many people are fishing so the fish aren’t super active. Other than that, it’s great!

Ask the local bait shops questions if you want to gear up for your trip as they are so friendly and helpful or ask your charter captain questions to help you become a better fisherman while you are on the boat.

Bring cold weather gear, especially for children, if the temperatures are in or blow the low 70’s. Boat ride wind gets real chilly, real fast.

It was an extremely tough day of fishing. Captain and boat were excellent. I hope to return next year and take the same trip.

When it gets really hot the fishing slows down. We will stick to deep sea fishing in the future rather than bay fishing.

It was a great time and we know fishing is fishing but the little fish (I cannot remember what they were called) kept stealing our bait. They were a bit of a menace.
