What to expect on your fishing charter:

We welcome aboard any and all types of anglers, from those with little fishing experience to professional tournament anglers and everyone in between.  We always stay in calm waters on our fishing charters, this means you will NOT get sea sick.  There are lots of fish close to shore in our area.  No need to spend the day traveling miles and miles to catch them either, we are usually fishing within minutes of leaving the dock.


The Emerald Coast of Florida offers a diverse variety of options while saltwater fishing.  This means we are able to use several different methods or types of fishing during your fishing charter.  For example, in the early morning hours we may start out throwing top-water plugs and baits targeting large speckled seatrout and then later morning look for cruising redfish on the flats in less than a foot or two of water. We also have several migratory species during different times of the year. These include tarpon, pompano, cobia, jacks, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, bluefish, and many more. You never know what is going to bite in the Gulf of Mexico inshore waters which makes it even more exciting each time you catch a fish!


The options are endless while fishing on the Emerald Coast of Florida, and we will utilize whichever method of fishing is best for that particular time and place, and of course whichever method you might prefer.  I will guide you as to what types of fish are biting during your fishing charter and the best way to target each type of fish.  We always use light-tackle during all of our fishing charters, which makes fighting the fish a lot more fun and sporty than using big heavy tackle, such as used on the large party boats.  The large party boats that accommodate 40 people or so use very large and bulky oversize rods and reels (winch style) that are heavy and very uncomfortable to fish with all day.


We always use very high quality, light weight custom rods and reels by Shimano and Penn.

At Emerald Ghost Fishing Charters it is all about having lots of fun while out on the water, and of course catching lots of fish.  Anyone can do this on light-tackle.
