Hot Spots Charters in Pensacola, Florida prepares for popular red snapper season amid Covid-19 pandemic.
— Red snapper season will open for federally permitted charter boats in the Gulf of Mexico on June 1, and for recreational anglers and state licensed fishing charter boats the following week on June 11.
Operating over a thousand fishing charters each year Hot Spots Charters is hands down one of Florida’s most popular fishing charter businesses. They operate eight boats daily out of Shaggy’s Bar and Grill and Pensacola Beach Marina on Pensacola, Beach.
Captain Dylan Johnson said “We try to make going on a fishing charter out of Pensacola, Florida with Hot Spots Charters as absolutely easy as possible. We provide everything needed including fishing gear and tackle, licenses, ice, bait, fishing cleaning, a boatload of knowledge, and even a place to have you catch cooked.”
The catch and cook that Captain Johnson is referring to is offered at Shaggy’s Bar and Grill on Pensacola Beach. After the Hot Spots Charters captains clean your catch you literally take it right up to the restaurant and they cook your catch and provide fries and hushpuppies for $12.99. Talk about eating fresh fish, that’s it!
Inshore/nearshore trips, which are the state licensed boats are priced at $500 for 4 hours, $575 for 5 hours, and $650 for 6 hours for up to 4 anglers, then $75 each for a 5th and 6th angler. These trips are operated on our 22-24 foot bay boats and we have 8 of them available daily.
Offshore 6-pack charters, the federally permitted boats are priced at $1,200 for 6 hours and $1,400 for 8 hours for up to 6 people. If you have more than 6 people, you’ll need what is referred to as a multi-passenger boat and those trips start at $1,400 for 6 hours but are in high demand and are often booked well in advance, especially on weekends.
