About Your Guide

Captain Buddy Wilson was born and raised here on the Emerald Coast and has lived here his entire life, a local boy. His dad took him fishing for the first time before he was even old enough to remember, and one of his favorite things to do, to this day, is go fishing with his dad. Buddy got to know the local bays and bayous from countless hours spent on the water with family and friends and he knows the waters of Choctawhatchee bay like the back of his hand. He loves fishing and he loves taking people fishing. Even in his off time he can be found running his boat all around the area constantly keeping track of where the fish are and what they're eating. Right Side Charters is owned and operated by Buddy and his wife and they operate year-round. We are fully licensed with the U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Wildlife Commission.
