Depending on what trip duration you choose, the species you target can differ:
The half-day trips are his entry-level excursions and are a great way to get acquainted with the local fishery. On these 4 hour trips, you will troll for Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel either in the morning starting at 6 AM or in the afternoon starting at 2 PM.
His 3/4 day trips are also offered in the morning or the evening starting at 6 AM or 3 PM. With a couple more hours on board for this 6-hour trip, you can head further out to reel in Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Triggerfish, and much, much more.
On his full-day adventure, you can really get the full saltwater experience. Trips start at 7 AM and you can spend the whole day on board, fishing for Red and Vermillion Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, and a ton of other tasty food fish. You really need to make room in the freezer before this trip!
No matter which trip you choose, Captain Doug's 43' Bertram sportfisher comes loaded with all the fishing gear you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. She's a beautiful vessel and a badass fishing machine, with a full cabin, tower for spotting fish, outriggers, a full head, and much more.
With all the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses provided, all you need to bring is your sun protection, some snacks and drinks, and your camera!
Captain Doug knows his guest are looking to relax and have a good time on their fishing trip. He wants everyone on board to have a memorable fishing experience so, even when the action in the water is low, he and his team will work hard to keep you entertained. Their goal is to make sure their customers have a great time, bring home the best catch, and create lifelong memories with family and friends.
Captain Doug was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. He has been fishing the area waters since he was old enough to sit on his dad’s lap and hold a rod and reel. He carries on the tradition as a 3rd generation boat captain. Captain Doug has been on and around the water all of his life, including fishing, surfing, and scuba diving....Read More
Captain Doug started his first charter fishing job in the early ’90s and never looked back. “I get enjoyment from watching my customers smile, laugh, and make memories that will last a lifetime.”
Six Shooter Charters is a family-owned and operated company. His son, Jonathan, has been the mate now for 2 years.
Had a great trip Capt Doug was very responsive to our communication back and forth in preperation prior to Hurricane Elsa in tge Gulf. He, his mate and boat were ready to go when we arrived at the dock. The fishing was amazing, he really new his spots. When they ...Read More appeared to small he moved on rather than burning time and saving bait and fuel. Top notch guide and Capt from start to finish. Cant say enough about John John his first mate. Excellent work ethic and very servant minded. We had an 8 yr old along and John paid him the special attention needed to make this the trip of a lifetime for the little guy. All without leaving the 4 adult men in need for anything. Thanks Captain Doug for a great and memborable day. PS. Yes we caught our limit of really nice snapper early and enjoyed some trolling on the way in.
I cannot say enough good things about this trip. Our priority was making memories with our children (7 & 9) who had never even been on a boat until today. We booked a 4 hour in shore trip. Again, not knowing how our children would react to ...Read More this new experience we went with the shorter trip. This was the perfect trip. We left early in the morning at the end of April. It was a little cool, but within an hour we were completely comfortable without wearing our light jackets. Captain Doug and his son Jonathan were amazing. They were so patient with our novice, excited little fishermen.
It was a lot of fun! The water was a little rough that day but we still ventured out. Our group consisted of my grandson, sister, brother-in-law their grandson and myself. This was our first time on a private charter. My grandson caught the first fish a red snapper. King ...Read More Mackerels were caught and filleted. Captain Doug was great and Josh was excellent. We definitely recommend Six Shooter Charters.
Rave Review. I’m sure the charter business is competitive and most of these captains are good guys to go with, but this right here is the real deal. Doug is a 4th generation Pensacola native Captain, with over a dozen charter boats under his belt, and the know how to ...Read More go with it. With Son John crewing, there was really nothing to do but enjoy the ride, and we were having a great ride before the fish started hitting. However, pulling in a cooler full of Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish, with a good sized Red Drum for a cameo photo op, obviously made it that much better. We were looking at going offshore to look for deep water species but with wind advisories and Doug’s experience, we stayed closer to shore and did just fine without getting thrown around as much. The Marina Mascot, a Great Blue Heron named Bob, met us on return and paid close attention during Doug’s rapid fillet session. We’d do it again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!!
We had an absolute blast! The captain was amazing at keeping us updated on what was going on and telling us tips and tricks. They where super patient with us tangling up the line! His first mate and son was super helpful in keeping our hooks baited and helping the ...Read More kids make sure they caught something as well! We will be booking again on our next trip ❤️
