We went out with Travis and had a great time. We caught 6 big red snapper. The most fun we've ever had fishing, very hard fighting fish. The sharks gave us so.e trouble but Travis found the big snappers for us. Will definitely come back to marlin hunters.

Had a great trip with Travis! Caught the limit on red snapper within the first hour and had a blast the whole time out. Spent more time fishing than waiting. We could really tell he knew what he was doing and we were not disappointed thank you! I will definitely be booking another trip with Marlin Hunters soon.

Travis took us out for half day. Nearly caught our limit (2 shy) of snapper and caught a nice Amberjack. Travis was really great and kept moving when the fish weren’t biting, or the Dolphins were pestering us. Our half day was 2/3 the price of others we called, but when we got back I heard others say they were not as “lucky” as we were. I say it was Travis’ skill rather than luck, because we are all about as amateur as you can get. I will happily recommend Marlin Hunters to my friends/family when they are in Pensacola Beach!!! Thanks Capt. Travis for an unforgettable day celebrating my son’s college graduation. You seem to have have the corner on the market for the fish “supply chain”!! 😂👍🏻🏆🎉. Took our fish to several restaurants and they cooked it up for us. Best I’ve ever tasted.

Red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) is  one of the Gulf of Mexico’s signature fish.  

Red Snapper Fish are extremely popular among recreational fishermen and a prized offering at restaurants and seafood markets, as well as a top predator in the Gulf ecosystem.

 Here are few facts about this iconic fish:

Red snapper can grow to about 40 inches, weigh up to 50 pounds and live more than 50 years.

They begin to reproduce when they are about two years old, spawning from May to October along rocky ledges or coral reefs.

Fertilized eggs float on the surface and hatch within a day. Only a month later, the young fish settle out of the water column in shallow waters, and as they get older, they move to structured habitat where they will mature and eventually move to the deeper waters of the Gulf.

Bigger, older red snappers produce many more eggs than young ones. One 24-inch female red snapper (about 8 years old) produces as many fish as 212, 17-inch females (about 5 years old)

What other kinds of Fish do you catch?

Sheeps head-are good eating fish that are found in our bays and sounds year round.
They gather in large numbers in the pass during March and April to spawn which makes great fishing a few weeks in the spring! 
The average size is around two pounds but can grow to over ten pounds. 

Bluefish -Often found in large schools of small fish in our area along the gulf beaches. They are voracious feeders witch makes them a good target and a great experience for young kids. 

Redfish-  Are found year round in our area, primarily caught in the bays and passes on artificial reefs and like live bait. The Bulls often school in large numbers in the fall and winter making for action packed fishing. Smaller slot fish are often found in the shallows around docks and bridges in the summer months. Average size needed to keep is three or four pounds, which is an 18" to 27" fish but the Bulls grow to up to 40lbs or more. 
If you've never had blackened Redfish your missing out!

Cobia -Is a popular fish along our coast known for the large spring migration. starting in March and running through April. These fish are targeted by sight fishing along the beaches often in less than twenty feet of water. 
Cobia are very large and hard fighting fish that will readily take bait or lures. The average size is around 30 lbs  growing to over 100 lbs. Cobia is a favorite to eat. 

Flounder -This strange looking flat fish can be found in the bays and along the beaches almost anywhere. 
They lay flat on the bottom and wait to ambush there pray. Bottom fishing with small live baits is the preferred fishing  method but can readily take a jig fished along bottom as well. Most are around 2 lbs but can grow to over 10 lbs and Flounder is very good on the plate. 

 Speckled Trout These fish can be caught year round through out our bays and sounds with the larger fish often being caught in the spring.
The average size  around 14" but can grow as large as 10 lbs also very good eating.

Black tip Shark -We have many different species of shark along the gulf coast but the black tip is definitely one of the better eating ones.
