Guided by Taft Taunton
Deep Sea Flats Inshore
Book your trip with Captain Taft, a retired Navy officer and US Coast Guard Licensed Charter Captain, who has a lifetime of experience fishing these waters. He offers a wide variety of fishing and sightseeing trips for all the family. From Indian Pass, St. Joe Bay, Cape San Blas and the Offshore waters of the Gulf Of Mexico, this charter has the flexibility and variety you need to design the Port St Joe adventure you have been dreaming of.
Captain Taft is more than capable of finding the fish, assisting to get them on board, cleaning them, and even giving tips on cooking your catch. All you need to do is hop aboard and get ready to have some fun.
Once you've taken an offshore trip with Captain Taft, you'll be addicted to deep sea fishing! The waters around Port St. Joe & Cape San Blas are some of the most fertile and finest fishing grounds on the Gulf, and are home to a variety of hard-fighting and delicious reef and pelagic species. These trips will usually target Snapper species, Cobia King Mackerel and grouper. Red Snapper season generally runs June 1st - July 31st. These dates are not set in stone and can vary from year to year, but Captain Taft's boat is Federally Permitted which allows him to not only venture offshore beyond the state water mark (+9mi from shore) but also to catch fish at certain times when the recreational season is closed. Captain Taft is the owner/operator of his charter business so you will always fish with him out of his 2016 25’ Sportsman Platinum Masters 247 center console boat. Powered by a 300HP Yamaha motor, it can accommodate 4 to 5 anglers (depending on size and type of trip requested). It comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, and ice box. All charters include fishing equipment, lures and live bait, ice and fishing licenses. All you need to bring are your drinks and snacks. Read More
