Saltwater fishing opportunities abound in the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. While your relaxing on our beautiful beaches, just grab your pole, the best South Walton fishing is right off the beach.
There is also plenty of freshwater and coastal dune lakes ( Campbell Lake
, Big Redfish Lake, Western Lake or Deer Lake
) to please even the most serious fisherman or fly fisherman
in the family.
Experience a South Walton fishing adventure with an experienced charter boat captain like Captain Larry Penter
, a native of South Walton, who has been fishing local waters for over forty years. His knowledge of local fish, their habits and their habitats, will provide a fishing experience for you to enjoy. From Snapper and Grouper fishing to Cobia along the sandbar or even Tarpon at Indian Pass.
