Fly Fishing Skiff Charter

2019 brings a new level of fly fishing experience to 7wtCharters with the purchase of a 19′ East Cape Vantage boat. This open water skiff with 150hp ETEC HO will get us to all the fishing grounds comfortably, dry and safe. Outfitted with custom-casting platform, leaning post and trolling motor.
Taking into consideration the season, current weather and wind, we’ll set out to fish the flats, inlets, feeder creeks and bayous from The Narrows of Ft. Walton to the mouth of the Choctawhatchee River in Point Washington. We’ll have shots at Speckled Trout, Redfish, Bluefish, and Jack Crevalle.

Give me a call and let’s talk about your interests and goals for fly fishing.

Kayak Excursions

Fly fishing from a kayak is the stealthiest way to set onto some great action. Depending on which area we paddle, I also like to get out and wade fish the grass beds as well. This is a wonderful way to see the local marine habitat up close.

One of my favorite trips is to paddle from Lake Powell, Phillip’s Inlet Bridge, through the natural cut to the beach and surf cast for Pompano and Redfish. This is one of our area’s largest rare dune lakes with brackish water, as the fresh and salt waters mix.

I have traditional sit-inside kayaks, with life jackets, rods and all tackle. Let’s go for a paddle!

Scenic Charters

Have you wanted to take a scenic tour around our many bodies of water but didn’t have access to a boat or Licensed Captain? I offer a scenic trip for those interested in Eco-touring, plein-air painting, photography or perhaps a sunset cruise.

Quik Trip

Not enough time in your vacation or work schedule, but still want to get your hands on a fly rod? Try out our Quik Trip, designed as an introduction to fly fishing, or perhaps just a needed break when dawn or dusk fishing is at its best.

Each of these Charters has the option to upgrade to a full-day or to add a catered lunch.
