Trek Description

A Bay Fishing adventure is perfect for new and seasoned anglers alike! The characteristics of a Bay Fishing trip are calm waters, beautiful scenery, and of course, great fishing. You’ll be out on the open water, but you’ll never leave sight of land. Rest assured, though; staying inshore doesn’t mean you’re missing out. Inland waters allow you to explore bays, backcountry, mangroves, harbors and more. While you are Bay Fishing with one of our vetted Guides, you will catch a wide variety of fish. Redfish, Snook, Trout, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper are all waiting in Bay waters - just to name a few!

You’ll get to spend the day on a bay boat that is equipped to handle your group comfortably during the short-distance trip. Your Guide will stick to the shallow, intercostal waterways, which are protected by Florida’s bays and inlets. Relax and enjoy the boat ride, as you’ll move from spot to spot depending on where the fish are biting.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the amazing creatures you might see along the way! Some of the wildlife you might get to see on your Bay Fishing trip include dolphins, turtles, manatees, osprey, pelicans and more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your day with our seasoned Guides. Let them do all the work while you enjoy the experience and make new memories with friends, families or clients. Bait, gear and good times included. BYOB!
