Hop on board with Captain Wilkin and prepare for an action-packed day fishing St. Josephs bay or further out on the Gulf Coasts near shore waters....Read More
On this 4, 6 and 8 hour fishing excursions, Captain Wilken will cruise you out into the St. Josephs Bay where you'll be targeting picturesque Redfish, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. All you'll need to get one of these fish on your line is some light tackle and artificial lures or live bait. Whichever fish you want to catch, Captain Wilkin will make sure you get the best setup, take you to his best spots, and give you some helpful pointers!
Whether permitting, Captain Wilkin is also willing to push it a little further offshore to chase Tripletail. These trips are especially productive in the Summer months. If conditions are right, Captain Wilkin will recommend these kinds of trips when you meet up with him at the dock!
On this trip you'll be aboard a 24’ Shallow Sport bay boat with a capacity for 6 people. A 225 HP Yamaha engine will get you exactly where the fish are biting in the bay! This do-it-all vessel is complete with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well, a Wireless Trolling Motor, and an Ice Box to store your catches. Captain Wilkin will happily clean any keepers for no extra charge!
Captain Wilkin will provide all rods, reels, tackle and live bait. All you need to bring is any food and drinks you might want out on the water.
Captain Wilkin has been on the ocean since he can remember. With a lifetime of fishing under his belt, he finally answered the incesant call from the ocean in 2013 when he got his captain's license and started running his own business.

I took my son, his girlfriend, and one one of my grandsons on the 5-hour charter with Captain Wilkin; we all had a great time and caught fish; in fact, we would’ve brought more back but we had some that were either too small, broke our lines, or were able ...Read More to throw the hook; overall, I recommend this charter service - Captain Wilken put us in several great spots during our trip.

Captain Wilkin was just the nicest guy & worked really really hard to try to get us some fish in the boat. Had booked a morning offshore trip but thanks to mother nature it ended up being an afternoon inshore trip for the 4 of us. Taught us how to ...Read More cast / retrieve properly. We traveled all over the bay in search of fish but not a thing was biting - turned into a beautiful tour & captain went out of his way to interact with us while we were camping over at the state park. Would definitely try again.
