Welcome to Mega-Bite Inshore Charters, Im Capt. John Rivers. I have been fishing since I was old enough to hold a rod, and my years of experience and enthusiasm have always ensured a successful trip! Your Inshore adventure will begin in Santa Rosa Sound on the calm waters of the ICW or on Pensacola Bay. Many species of fish roam these waters, and these include Redfish, Trout, Bluefish, Skipjacks, Spanish mackerel, Cobia, and even Sharks.
I began guiding in 2004, and I have over 10 years of experience fishing the local waters. I decided after moving to Pensacola to turn my passion for fishing into my business, and obtained my captain's license. I make my living by showing others what I love to do. My goal is that even the most inexperienced angler will learn to fish like a pro after enjoying a day on the Mega-Bite.
My coast bay boat is a fishing machine, at 24 ft long and 9ft wide, and with its shallow draft and Carolina bow, I can ease into the shallow water flats in search of specks and reds or head offshore-- 9miles or less--on calm days. I have a 250 Four Stroke Yamaha that is quite and efficent to get us to many of my honey holes fast and safe. I also have a Powerpole on the boat for shallow water fishing when stelth is a must to ensure we catch fish.
You can easily set up a trip with me the next time you plan on staying in Pensacola, Perdido Key, or Navarre.
