Fishing on the Gulf Coast, specifically the "Nature Coast", is an adventure you won't forget. Being located off the beaten path allows for low pressure fishing spots away from the many overpopulated and congested parts of the state. This is one of the most action-packed and enjoyable fishing trips you can charter as a group or family.
Fish of all shapes and sizes call these waters home. Nearshore Gulf fishing trips are not deep sea fishing trips, but this has no impact on the quality or quantity of fish caught.
