About Your Trip

Bring your kids or your angling buddies and embark on a nearshore fishing adventure in Pensacola Beach, Florida with Captain Justin Simmons of Paradise Fishing Charters!

On this 3, 5, or 8-hour trip, you’ll be fishing within 9 miles of the shore, so you’ll be out in more open water. You will target Amberjack, Cobia, Dorado (Mahi Mahi), and King Mackerel / Kingfish among other species.

You’ll be fishing aboard Captain Justin’s 24-foot center console that is equipped with a 250 HP Yamaha engine. She can accommodate 6 anglers.

Don’t forget food and drinks for the day, a hat, and sunscreen. Captain Justin will provide all licenses, rods (Shimano Torium, Penn Spinfisher), reels, and tackle. You’ll fish with live bait if it’s available to be caught. Paradise Fishing Charters will clean, fillet, and bag your fish after your trip.

Get ready for an exciting day on the water with Captain Justin!
