As your Indian Pass host,  I am one of the most dedicated sport fishing guides on the Gulf coast.  I am a licensed US Coast Guard Captain.  I have fished all of my life.  I love to fish!   I am so passionate about fishing that I fish even when I don't have a charter.  So, I know where the fish are.  You can expect a 100% effort to put you on the fish.

My guided back country flats fishing charters are conducted from a clean and well maintained 18' tunnel hull flats boat.  For slightly deeper water and coastal fishing we use our 22' Pathfinder.   You will be provided with instruction, equipment, tackle, bait and ice.   In addition, the charter also includes all fishing licenses.  You only need to bring whatever you want to eat and drink, and be ready to have a great day on the water.

The Apalachicola Bay and St. Joe Bay area offers you the chance to see a diversity of wildlife in addition to the spectacular fishing.  During your trip, you may see a variety of land and sea creatures including:  dolphin, sea turtles, deer, black bear and alligators.  In addition, the area is home to an assortment of birds ranging from bald eagles and osprey to pelicans, ibis, spoonbills,  egrets, herons and more.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, we have a fishing charter to make your saltwater fishing dreams come true.

If you are looking for a saltwater inshore fishing guide, call me today to reserve a date for a fishing charter.

Welcome aboard!
