Hop on board with Captain Brandon and prepare for an action-packed day of targeting Tarpon! Conveniently located right next to the beautiful Santa Rose Beach, Choctawhatchee Bay offers excellent year-round fishing for the "Silver Kings." These acrobatic fish are known for their scaly, sea monster appearance and high-flying battles on the line. They are some of the most exciting species to catch! On this half day "Silver King" adventure, Captain Brandon will cruise you out to the beach fronts off Santa Rosa Beach looking for rolling tarpon. You can choose to fish artificials or throw live crabs/mullet at these overgrown minnows. But be sure to hold on tight either way. And don't forget to bow to the king when he jumps!

We had Brandon as our Captain and he was great. we probably covered 80 miles looking for Tarpon and found 5 schools but we couldnt get them to bite. We did hook a couple of different fish in a school but they got off. Our captain did everything he could and was none stop looking to try and get us on fish. I would for sure go back out and try again. Thanks for experience and hope to see you again sometime in the future. …
My kids loved the experience! Captain Brandon is the best!
Went duck hunting with Capt. Brandon and it was an awesome experience for the Florida panhandle area! He really knows the ducks and the fish of the local bay here in 30a! His gear and boats are all top notch and so is his attitude to get you on whatever you are chasing that day! I definitely recommend this company! …
Our group had a fantastic deep sea fishing experience. Thanks to the weather, calm water, and last but not least a terrific guide (Brandon) we were able to pull in a true “boat load” of fish. We did the 6 hour off shore and had a lot of success. Most of the group has been on several different fishing trips on bigger boats and after this trip we all agreed that we like the intimacy of the small boat a little better. For anyone that loves to fish and the experience of running and gunning to find them you would love this charter. Brandon our guide is a good dude that loves what he does and will give it his all when it comes to giving his customers the best experience he can. …
Great trip! Brandon was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and patient with the 2 teens I had with me. I would recommend for both beginners and experienced anglers.
We were in town for our honeymoon and booked a trip with Captain Brandon. We had a very productive day, caught 11 red snappers (shame the season was closed). Captain Brandon and his crew kept us on fish the entire time, as soon as the bite would stop in one spot he would move to another. Highly recommend this charter and will definitely book him again when we are back. …
Captain Brandon was AWESOME! His boat was top notch. It was clean, maintained and ready for a day on the water. He did everything to make sure my kids had a great time and even asked my son to climb up on the tower with him while under way to our first fishing spot. The fishing was slow, however we caught an alligator gar, a bunch of catfish and a few stingray. We will definitely book with Brandon on our next trip but will probably go out on the deep sea trip and go for some big fish. Thank you for a great experience!! …
Me and 3 family members went with Brandon on a 6 hour trip targeting snapper and mahi! To say we killed it is an understatement! Brandon had us on our target fish the entire trip! He adjusts quickly to changing conditions and has many great spots to hit for the next big bite. We ended up with 7 mangrove snapper, 7 very large red snapper, 3 mahi mahi, and great pictures of dolphins and even better memories!!! His boat is well maintained and comfortable and he is a great captain that we all thoroughly enjoyed getting to know. We definitely will be booking future trips with Brandon! …
I booked a half day bay trip with 3 adults and 1 child. Brandon worked hard to put us in the fish and avoid sporadic rain clouds, but the redfish and Speckled Trout were not cooperating. Those of us on the boat caught several catfish, but the target species were just not there this day. Brandon took us to multiple destinations and allowed us to try multiple techniques, but the weather put a severe kink in our morning plans. Brandon is very friendly and knowledgeable, so I would definitely book a trip with him again. …
