3 Hour Afternoon

This package is a good option for our spontaneous customers. On this trip we will make a boat ride through the bay where we will see Fort Pickens (a popular Pensacola beach destination) and the Pensacola lighthouse.

We will likely troll around some lures and catch fish like Spanish Mackerel, Ladyfish, Hard Tails, and Remoras. Most of them are fun hard fighting fish for the light tackle we will be using. There is always a chance that we will see Dolphins, Sea Turtles, and other wildlife while we are out.

√ Catch, photo and release.

√ Chance to spot wildlife!

√ Lower fuel burn (eco friendlier).

√ Our most economical option.
