Inshore and nearshore fishing charters grow in popularity every year along the Pensacola, Navarre, and Perdido Key area simply because there a load of fun for less money than your traditional offshore fishing charter. The good part about booking an inshore / nearshore charter with Grouper Trooper Charters is the fact that you aren’t limited to backwater fishing because we believe in offering our customers the best trip possible on any given day. The weather and fishing seasons often play a big role in our target species, but when possible we like to venture out into the Gulf of Mexico for species like snapper, grouper, and mackerel. If we aren’t provided great weather it’s not a problem at all we will just switch gears and go after inshore species like redfish, speckled trout, flounder, sheepshead, and Spanish mackerel. Sharks are another popular target that anglers often like to go after and they can be caught in Pensacola Bay or the Gulf of Mexico both night and day. Of course the summertime is our busiest time of year, but the Navarre and Pensacola area offers some great action during the fall months and its usually much more comfortable outdoors. Remember when going fishing with Grouper Trooper Charters we provide fishing licenses, bait, tackle, ice, rods & reels, and fish cleaning. You should bring food, drinks, sunscreen, a hat or visor, camera, and a small cooler to take your fish home in. If you need help trying to figure out which trip may be best for your family or group please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
