GULF FISHING (out to 9 miles or state waters)
Play N Hooky Charters extends a friendly welcome to The Emerald Coast of Florida. This family-run business prides itself on making sure your trip is family-friendly. Join our captain in fishing waters both near and off the shore while building memories you will share with friends and family for a lifetime. The waters in the area are full of a dynamic range of fish and sea life. Come explore the Gulf with Play N Hooky Charters.
Depending on the time of year and season, you can catch Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Mingo Snapper, Almaco Jack, Amberjack, Pompano, Red Snapper, Trigger, Blacktip Shark, reef sharks, and many others. You’ll use only high-end tackle as well as multiple types of fishing techniques. The crew specializes in bottom fishing but you can also troll as well as experience free lining. Typical trips will fish several to many reefs. The charter length determines the number of reefs we will fish as well as the availability of live bait. Live bait is premium for certain species of fish and is used on charters of 5 hours or better. Kids are welcome to come aboard and the crew will enjoy helping them learn to fish. The captain will ensure that you keep all the fish allowed by the FWC. He’s generous with the length of the charter and looks forward to helping you build the best experience ever.
When you join the crew for a trip, the Captain will provide drinking water, gear, licenses, as well as clean your catch. You may bring snacks, drinks, hats, sunglasses, sun screen, and cameras. Fish with Play N Hooky Charters, and let us make your trip to the Florida Emerald Coast special.
Our trips will go up to 9 miles offshore. Restrictions on harvesting fish are in place by the FWC and in season fish are limited by these guidelines found on the FWC website: https://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/ Your fishing license is part of the fee.
All trips depart Bluewater Bay Marina, 290 Yacht Club Dr, Niceville, FL 32578

3 or 4 Hour Trip
Families, fish, and fun are the focus on this trip. Quantity over quality size fish is the mission, with lots of poles bending frequently. Fishing education is a key feature of these 4 hours on the water. The captain always makes time to visit dolphin friends on the way, as well as provide lots of explanations of the technology used to locate fish and navigate. Each 3 or 4 hour morning trip is great for kids. Short run time and fishing nearshore reefs. Great action with mostly smaller fish with a lot of catch and release. If you are looking to take a lot of keepers back, we highly recommend one of the longer trips we offer (6 or 8 hours). This trip includes 30-40 minutes of dolphins up close!
Our 5 hour trips and longer use live bait and fish a greater number of reefs.
All trips must be booked with the Captain via a phone call. He will want to get your preferences for your charter and make sure we can meet your expectations for a fantastic trip. You are welcome to call and ask questions as well.
Fish and Fun Trips (Crab Island AND Fishing in one trip) can be accomplished in any trip. Request a quote for custom trips available as well by request.
