Next step charter fishing in the Bay

Looking for a longer trip and to practice some new fishing skills with less hand-holding from your captain? The Choctawhatchee Bay provides the perfect classroom.

Unlike trips in the Gulf, which require more time to get to the best fishing holes, fishing in the Bay will have your poles in the water right away. As Captain Jeremiah Mayville of Flat Attack Charters points out, a day on the Bay is all about fun and fishing all while building confidence out on the water. Working with an experienced captain like Lionel James aboard Lions Tale Adventures will set you up for success and ensure you have everything you need–from fishing licenses to bait to rods. Simply pack a cooler and head on out.

Your captain will take the time to provide as-needed instruction, while allowing your kids to bait and cast on their own. They’ll also be sure to share their secrets for tracking fish patterns, locating the best spots to target and protecting and conserving specific species.

TIP: Talk with your captain to select an amount of time that works for your family, ranging anywhere from a half-day morning trip (4 hours) to a full-day adventure (6 hours).
