Here at Southbound Tournament Fishing Charters, we offer some of the best Pensacola fishing charters imaginable! We tailor our fishing trips to your needs. Instead of offering a few basic trips, we provide more affordable, fun, and time friendly alternatives. We accommodate each trip to your individual desires. Standard on our trips are drinks, snacks, photos/videos, and most importantly, your safety.

 

Captain Henry Baker will be leading the way on your Pensacola deep sea fishing adventure. His fishing experience started with being part of a tournament fishing team that eventually started running Pensacola fishing charters. He takes pride in customer service and will go the extra mile to ensure you have the time of your life. He is always ready to share all of his insight on fishing and answer any questions you may have on trips with him. 

 

Our Pensacola deep sea fishing trips set sail out of Pensacola Beach, Florida. Depending on where the fish are biting, you may end up exploring other nearby fishing grounds including Oriole Beach, Gulf Breeze, Warrington, Tiger Point, Fort Pickens, and many other wonderful locations along the Emerald Coast of Florida. 

 

Your fishing adventure will begin the minute you hop aboard our 24ft McKee Craft center console. This vessel was built with Pensacola fishing charters in mind! She is powered by a set of 200hp Suzuki engines that will get us to all the fishing hotspots in a very timely manner. This boat features GPS, radar, a fish finder, downriggers, outriggers, a livewell, a cooler, and a multimedia system. 

 

We offer a wide variety of fishing trips ranging from 2 to 10 hours in length. Everything needed for a successful day of Pensacola deep sea fishing is included. At the end of each trip, we will clean and bag any catch you are allowed to keep. Capt. Henry can teach you about several fishing techniques including bottom fishing, trolling, and drift fishing to name a few.

 

The species that call this area home are endless, and we will put you right on top of them! You get to decide what you want to chase after. Some of our favorite species to target on our Pensacola deep sea fishing trips include Snapper, Grouper, Sailfish, Wahoo, Redfish, Mahi Mahi, Tarpon, Tuna, and Kingfish. 

 

Nobody does Pensacola fishing charters better than us! Book a trip with Southbound Tournament fishing Charters today for a fishing experience you will always remember!

Quick trip means we run faster to cover more ground. Times are flexible; depends on other trips we're running that day.

    • Shark of a lifetime

      Created Kai Chen

      I’ve been deep sea fishing all over the world. Was in Pensacola on a family vacation and decided to go with Captain Baker and deckhand Taylor of Southbound Tournament Fishing Charters for a half day of shark fishing. Not only are these guys masters of their craft, These guys make you feel like you’re fishing with friends. They are nice, knowledgeable, and professional. What stood out to me the most was their effort level. They will try the entire time to put you on fish. End result was a tiger shark of a lifetime! Thanks guys!

    • Created Reid Torgersen

      Capt. Baker and the Southbound team will put you on the fish! Whether you're looking for an inshore adventure catching trout, redfish and flounder, or getting into deeper waters looking for King mackerel, grouper and amberjack, they'll get the job done. Highly recommend.

    • Created Travis Gottstine

      Captain Baker was not only professional and well prepared but put us on some great fish. Would definitely book with him on our next fishing charter.

    • Created Taylor Varichak

      Had a great time offshore with Capt Henry Baker! He put me on some species I never thought I would catch. He has the skills and gear to get you on any fish in the Gulf! I can’t wait to get after them again.
