Beginner inshore fishing

Looking for a fun and easy way to teach your kids how to fish?

A beginner inshore fishing trip and ecotour on the calm waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay is the perfect way to introduce your family to fishing. These private fishing adventures are tailored for younger kids with a shorter trip length and one-on-one fishing instruction. Your captain will teach you and your kids how to bait a line, how to cast and how to reel in a big one! They’ll also point out the dolphins, herons, and other wildlife along the way to your fishing spots.

Tip from our locals:

Ask your captain if they offer a fish-cleaning service so you and your family can enjoy all your hard work for dinner. Take your fish to any of our restaurants that offer cook your catch (like Harbor Docks or Brotula’s) and enjoy a delicious, Gulf-to-Table meal!
