Our friendly crew will go the extra mile to tailor each trip to your needs and ensure you have the best time possible out on the water. We are very family-friendly and welcome anglers of all ages and skill level to join us for an exciting day of North Florida fishing!

Captain Bruce Aldridge will be greeting you at the dock at the start of your fishing journey. Nobody fishes this area like Capt. Bruce! He has been running Port St Joe fishing charters for over 3 decades and has enjoyed every second of it. Capt. Bruce loves being able to meet new people and show them just how exciting North Florida fishing can be. He is always happy to share his insight and answer any questions you may have on fishing trips with him.

Our fishing charters start out of Port St Joe, Florida. Captain Bruce will strive to put you right where the fish are biting. He may lead you to the nearby fishing grounds of St. Vincent Island, Apalachicola, highland View, Saint Joseph Bay, St. George Island, and many other popular areas along the shores of the Florida Panhandle.

Fishing will be done aboard our stunning 25ft Sea Pro center console. Few other boats can do Port St Joe fishing charters like this one! Her 250hp Yamaha engine will power us to all the fishing hotspots in a hurry so you can spend more time fishing. On deck, you will find features such as a casting platform, a live baitwell, GPS, all the required safety equipment, a wireless trolling motor, and all the latest fish finding technologies. There will be plenty of room on board for you and 3 of your closest friends to enjoy North Florida fishing.

We offer 5 and 6 hour fishing trips that run from the months of April thru August. You will be provided with all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and fishing licenses needed to fish. We will clean and fillet and catch you are able to keep at the end of each trip at no extra cost.

North Florida offers excellent fishing opportunities! Capt. Bruce will make it his top priority to make sure you fully exploit these opportunities.

Half day with bruce
Awesome trip! Bruce was very personable and professional. He wasted no time putting us on some fish! We caught some triple tail and boy was those good eating! We caught 2 keepers and it feed 4 adults and 3 kids with some left over. We caught some Spanish Mackerel as well those where also very tasty! And plenty of sharks!! As much fun as they where to fight I woulda been satisfied with a cold cut sandwich if we didn’t catch anything else at all. Bruce was very easy going and knew what he was talking about. Our next time down we will definitely be looking to book with Bruce again. Boat was clean and maintained and all fishing equipment was up to par. We needed nothing but some better sea legs and more upper body strength.

Kids trip
I sent my children with Captain Bruce on a half day trip when we visited the gulf. Captain Bruce was professional, knowledgeable, and took the time with the kids to educate them about gulf coast fishing as well as put them on fish. As a retired professional sport fishing Captain for many years, I was impressed and happy with Captain Bruce’s operation, knowledge, and professionalism. I would highly recommend Captain Bruce to anyone who visits the Port St Joe area.
