Welcome to Rusty Anchor Charters

Take a break and bring back a boatload of great memories for you and your family. Let us pick you up at a dock that's convenient for you.

    inshore/close offshore sport trolling

Jump on board ride out into beautiful Gulf of Mexico to catch larger fish such as, King Mackerel, black fin tuna, cobia, little tuna, sail fish, Spanish mackerel, amberjack, triggerfish and others. This trip is more adventurous, fun and relaxing on those hot summer days or winter, as we travel up to 1 to 5 miles out into the open waters of the gulf or in the bay sport trolling for fish up and down the beautiful coast line.

    Bay fishing

Bay fishing is one of the more scenic trips we offer along Florida’s Emerald Coast. This trip keeps you within the protected waters of Pensacola Bay or Destin, While fishing along the beautiful white sand beaches or anchoring out over reefs to fishing you are sure to catch various types of fish such as flounder, sheep head, red fish, Spanish mackerel, black snapper, blue fish, lady fish or king fish. There’s no telling what will come up and grab your line in the bay. This trip is more for families with kids or people who don't like to go in the gulf, so have some fun, catch fish, see the sights and explore.

    deep reef fishing

If you want to do something that you will remember forever, now would be a great time to go fishing with Captain mike for some rod bending action. If you’re daring enough to travel into to the deep state water reefs or wrecks of Florida's panhandle, you will catch some of the larger fish such as Amberjack, Red Snapper, Grouper, and Shark, cobia, anything’s possible out there.

There are some huge fish out there so be ready to grab on to your rod!!!
