Join Sunshine Fishing Charters in the heart of the Florida Panhandle, and take advantage of the fantastic fishing opportunities both inshore and in the Gulf. Captain Jordan Nelson has been running fishing trips for over 20 years, and he’ll help you land the fish of your dreams. Raised locally in the area, he’s the perfect guide for your day on the water.

During your trip, you can fish the bays for Redfish and Trout or travel further out to catch Red Snapper and Grouper in the Gulf. Capt. Jordan suggests sight fishing for Redfish along the beach, spinning for Red Snapper, and fly fishing for Trout. He’s happy to lend a helping hand to any novice. All the rods, tackle, live bait and lures you will need are included in the price of the trip (as well as your fishing license).

You’ll be fishing out of a spacious 22’ Cape Horn center console boat, powered by a 225 HP Honda engine. The boat’s tee top provides shade from the sun, and its large casting area on the bow gives you plenty of room to hook up. With a live bait tank on board as well as GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio, the boat is well-equipped to get you reeling ‘em in. 

You’re guaranteed to find a family-friendly atmosphere, as well as professional service to make sure you get the most out of your trip. Children of all ages are welcome, and Capt. Jordan's determined to keep everyone entertained – even if they're new to the water.
