Capt. Frank’s Fun-Time Charters

Capt. Frank Stephenson Carrabelle, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Based out of Carrabelle and covering the areas of the eastern Florida Panhandle, Capt. Frank’s Fun-Time Charters offers some of the best fishing charters in Florida. Our friendly and professional staff will make sure you and your friends and families have a great time out on the water with many catches to show for each trip. 

 

Frank Stephenson will be the captain on board for your Carrabelle fishing charter. Capt. Frank has over 45 years of experience fishing in Florida. He has knowledge of both the freshwater and saltwater species that inhabit Florida. Fishing isn’t just a hobby for Capt. Frank, it is a lifestyle. He loves everything about fishing from actually catching the fish to cooking them at home. He would be more than happy to share all of his knowledge with you on trips with him. 

 

Your outdoor Florida fishing charter with Capt. Frank will cover the waters of Carrabelle. A little over an hour drive southwest from Tallahassee, this area provides plenty of scenery and fishing opportunities. You and Capt. Frank could also end up exploring the nearby waters of Lanark Village, St Teresa, Alligator Point, Dog Island, St. George Island, Apalachicola, and many other wonderful locations along Florida’s Panhandle in the Gulf of Mexico. 

 

Capt. Frank has a 21ft Cobia center console that makes fishing charters in Carrabelle very pleasant. Behind her is a 150hp Yamaha four-stroke engine that can propel her to cruising speeds up to 29 knots. She is spacious enough for up to 3 guests to comfortably fish at the same time. On deck, you will find a T-top, deep V, high gunnels, and a 50 gallon bait well. 

 

Your trips with us are designed to comply with your preferences, whether inshore, offshore, freshwater, etc. We offer 8 and 12 hour fishing trips that provide you with all the fishing gear, lures, and bait needed to catch fish. A Florida fishing license will be provided at the start of the trip and we will be happy to clean and prepare your catches for cooking after the trip. Don’t forget to ask Capt. Frank about some of his favorite fish recipes and cooking techniques.

 

Going offshore with us, you can expect to target some exciting species including King Mackerel, Bonito, Amberjack, Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, Black Seabass and more. Staying inshore will have you chasing after the likes of Flounder, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tripletail, and Spanish Mackerel. 

Join Captain Frank’s Fun-Time Charters for a deep sea fishing charter in Florida you will always remember! Book today to get started on this amazing Florida fishing experience.
