Let’s catch Some Fish! From deep sea fishing the beautiful Gulf of Mexico or fishing the inshore waters of Pensacola Bay, we do it all here at Strickly Fishing Charters! Strickly Fishing Charters specializes in bringing top quality fishing charters in Pensacola Florida and surrounding areas! The beautiful emerald waters off Pensacola Beach are great for sight fishing large or small game fish that cruise down the sandbars.

Captain Zachary Strickland will be guiding the way on your fishing trip. A Pensacola native, Capt. Zachary has over 20 years of experience fishing the area. He’s done a little bit of everything when it comes to fishing in Pensacola from freshwater to saltwater and everything in between. The reason he became a guide is because he has a huge passion for the sport of fishing. Capt. Zachary enjoys being on the water and putting smiles on people’s faces.

On your trip with Capt. Zachary, you can expect to fish areas such as Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze, Perdido Key, Navarre, and many other wonderful locations on the emerald coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.

Your fishing will be done on Capt. Zachary’s beautiful 24ft Triton center console that is powered by a 225hp Honda engine. She can carry up to 6 passengers and has plenty of room to fish off. The boat is equipped with all the necessary safety and navigation gear, as well as a livewell for bait and a wireless trolling motor.

We offer 4, 6, and 8-hour trips that include the use of our rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. A fishing license is provided at the start of the trip and we will clean your catches afterwards for you to take back home and cook for dinner.

Our inshore fishing charters in Pensacola Bay search for Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Sheepshead. Our deep sea/offshore fishing charters target Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish.

Whether you are looking for that trophy game fish of a lifetime or looking for a family fun fishing trip, Strickly Fishing Charters and Captain Zachary Strickland have something that is sure to suit your needs! Book a trip with us today and experience the magic of Pensacola fishing!

  • Fantastic Trip

    Created Tray Bailey

    Captain Zack was great! We caught plenty of fish. He baited the hooks for us with fresh bait every cast. We caught a 7-7.5 ft shark and I didn't even know we were going to try to catch a shark so that was a bucket list item for me! He was fun and knowledgeable. He cleaned the fish for us and sent us with plenty of meat and we even got the fresh catch cooked at a local place that he recommended (Frisky Dolphin) and it was fantastic! We will definitely be going back to him every year.

  • Amazing Job!!

    Created Amber Walker

    Captain Zack Strickland did an amazing job. He put us on the fish we requested in a very short amount of time. He explained everything clearly and we were able to catch different types of fish several different ways. We highly recommend him. Strickland lives locally and knows the area. (Fish caught: Red Snapper, Trigger, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel and more.)

  • Extremely Knowledgable

    Created Alisa Duncan

    We had so much fun with Captain Zack! He took us to the spots! The fish were non-stop biting! This was my first charter trip in Pensacola and I will definitely book again! Super personable, hard working, extremely knowledgeable, and professional. SO.MUCH.FUN! 🎣

  • Great Morning Trip

    Created Jeremy Hyatt

    We had a great morning with Captain Zack! He has a great demeanor, worked well with my wife, Mom and daughter. We caught lots of fish and had lots of laughs. Awesome experience, exceeded expectations! Highly recommended!

  • Definitely Returning

    Created Crystal Gayle

    Captain Zach was such a great guide! We caught so many different kinds of fish and even a shark. We were planning our next trip back before we got done fishing! We all had a blast.

  • Half Day Trip

    Created Michael Grisi

    Best fishing trip I’ve been on by far, and I’ve been on over 20 deep sea fishing trips in my life. From the get go, I knew we were in good hands. Captain Zac was super informative when I was shopping fishing charters and gave it to me straight. Day of the trip, winds were high and causing large swells. Capt Zac communicated to us at 4am his recommendation to delay a few hours and when we did go out, it was much more enjoyable to be out there. He knew the good spots and we immediately started catching fish, and caught fish throughout the whole half day trip (caught 70+ all in!!!). His boat was perfect for our group of 5 and he was the perfect host. Capt Zac was cool enough to filet the haul for us and everything. We ate like kings for days and I brought back tons of fish to Virginia. Highly recommend Capt Zac. I plan on coming back to Pensacola and booking Capt Zac when the big boys are in season!

  • Great Family Trip

    Created Shane Rizzo

    Captain Zack and 1st Mate Will were as good as we could hope for our first ever family fishing charter. They knew the waters and put us on fish quickly, so we caught a bunch! Their patience and friendly banter kept the kids (ages 9, 10, 12) at ease and involved. Kids have already asked if we can go out with Captain Zack again when we're back in FL, even the girls. Never had 5 hrs fly by so quickly.

  • Looking Forward to the next trip!

    Created Kevin Koontz

    Captain Zack was extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He knew exactly where to catch big red snapper very quickly. He wasted no time in finding us the right spots. As soon as it seemed like there wasn't much action, he would have us pull up the lines and take us to another hole where we could find more fish. Awesome time and looking forward to next year!

  • Great fishing Captain. I will be back.

    Created Grace

    This is a great 6 hour off shore charter. Best Captain. Zack put us in multiple spots and we all (5 of us) caught fish every time. I will definitely fish again with Captain Zack.

  • Tough Day !

    Created Frank Linda

    Captain Zack did a great job for us especially for the new girl on the boat. Fishing was tough thanks to the changing weather conditions. We tried a few different spots but could not locate an active bite. Zack kept trying and we all had a great time. A handful of oversize/out of season fish made the day interesting and fun. I have no hesitation in hiring Captain Zack again.

  • Great Time!!!

    Created Hillary Y

    Had a great time on the bay with Captain Zack! He knows where the fish are! We caught all kinds of fish. Truly a great time on the water, highly recommended!

  • AMAZING fishing trip!

    Created Stephanie O

    Captain Zack was great! He knew exactly where to put us so we could catch as many fish as possible. He was easy to get ahold of and answered all of our questions. I would recommend paying a little more and doing a 6 hour much more time for fishing!
