    If you want to catch fish go to capt Rick plain and simple. He put us on fish left and right. We came for red snapper but cap wasn't just gonna let us catch snapper.

    This fishing trip was the best I have ever had! Jake’s knowledge of the area was amazing! We got our Red Snapper limit in the first 20 minutes!! I have never caught so many fish in a short amount of time. If there wasn’t a limit we could have filled his entire boat.

    We went out on Tuesday which was originally scheduled for Monday but the weather didn’t cooperate and we were thankful that captain Seth suggested going out the next day. The weather was perfect and he put us on the snapper. We had a big group of people with a couple of first timers and everyone caught their limit and and had a great time. I would highly recommend this charter to anyone wanting to have a great time and load up on fish.

  • ★★★★★
    Rick and Logan are awesome, would love to go out with these guys again. Despite the weather we still went out and caught fish. Could have only imagined how well the trip could have been if Mother Nature had been nicer.

    Jeremy B. with Jake D. of Pensacola, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Our trip with Captain Rick and his first rate deckhand Logan was fantastic. They put us on multiple fish of different types and we tried different methods, some trolling, a lot of bottom fishing and some deep water with electric reels. We caught a lot of large triggerfish, three King mackerels and enough Mingo (vermillion) snapper that we had far too much fish to eat over the next two days. The boat was fantastic, offering the six of us more than enough space to spread out and all fish at once, and Logan was knowledgeable and efficient at everything. I really enjoyed catching a small shark and we had a larger one steal some of our fish to add a little excitement. Near the end of the day we had a large amberjack up to the boat but unfortunately he got off. We played with a few barracuda as well, caught a few snapper and small groupers that we couldn't keep and in between spots, we could chat and I enjoyed learning about the local waters and the trade. I personally caught 22 fish and my son got 21 so we were busy. The weather was near perfect and Rick adeptly steered us around a small storm, where we got to see a waterspout. I would highly recommend Gulf Bay - we had a blast and really enjoyed getting to learn from a couple of true professionals. Thank you Captain Rick, thank you Logan!
