Pensacola Inshore Fishing with Rooster Tail Fishing Charters

Pensacola Inshore Fishing Charter

Pensacola is the destination chosen by fishermen in shallow waters. The city has some of Florida’s pristine beaches, nightlife, an underwater archaeological museum, and a myriad of Florida’s most sought-after coastal species. No wonder the region goes by the popular name merald Coast’.

Before we talk about Pensacola Inshore Fishing Charter, it’s good to know that the city is located between two popular fishing destinations, Orange Beach, Alabama, and Florida. But don’t worry, we all fish in the same great waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you’re looking for coastal action or want to venture offshore, we’ve got you covered.

The coastal fishing takes place in several bodies of water, including Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and Big Lagoon. You will find that what we call coastal travel is slightly different from what is found elsewhere.

Inshore fishing involves using 22 to 24-foot boats for the coastal outings. When the weather permits, we head to the Gulf of Mexico for snapper, gag, woodcutter, and triggerfish. You also fish a lot outside Pensacola and around US Massachusetts for Spanish and royal mackerel.
