My name is Capt. Buddy Powers. I was born and raised fishing the waters of Pensacola, Florida. I am a 4th generation fisherman with over 30 years of experience in inshore and near shore fishing. I pride myself in being a family man....Read More
I am a married man of 14 years with an 8-year-old boy and 4-year-old triplet girls. To me there is nothing better than to take a family fishing, watching them having fun catching fish.
My license allows me to carry customers (where a fee is paid directly or indirectly) for the purpose of catching, attempting to catch, or possessing saltwater fish. All saltwater fishing guides in Florida must comply with U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) requirements. The U.S. Coast Guard (USGC) requires all operators of for-hire vessels to have a Captain license. Charter and saltwater fishing guide operations with Captain Buddy have an FWC charter captain or boat license to cover their passengers, so customers authorized to fish under the vessel license are not required to hold a recreational saltwater fishing license.

After getting 3 Snapper (2 to keep for limit) and 1 Triggerfish to throw back (out of season) we went back inshore to the harbor where I caught some little fish. This day the gulf could have been called The Rough Of Mexico. The experience of the guide made a good trip out of what could have been a bad day. I wanted to fry & eat ole Trigger after all the bait him & his buddies stole from us. The Reds were delicious off the grill. Thanks Ronald & Smokey. The trip was fun.
