Gulf Breeze Guide Service specializes in fly and light-tackle fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico around Pensacola, Florida.† The area is known as Floridaís Emerald Coast because of our sugar-white sandy beaches and emerald green waters.† In addition to the Gulf, we fish the diverse waters of Pensacola Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and the Big Lagoon targeting over fifteen resident and migratory species including redfish, pompano, false albacore, speckled trout, Spanish and king mackerel, bluefish, ladyfish, jack crevalle, amberjacks, mahi mahi, and tarpon.† We have fished these waters for over 40 years and use this experience guiding our clients to success. Please click on the "Types of Trips" button for a detailed description of our fly-fishing and light-tackle opportunities.
Capt Baz Yelverton specializes in fly-fishing and knows first hand that good casting is the key to success when fishing the salt. We suggest our fly clients become comfortable casting 50' with 8 weight tackle before booking a trip. To help you get there we have teamed up with FFF Certified Casting Instructor Jonas Magnusson who lives in Gulf Breeze. Jonas teaches the basics to beginners and line-accelerating techniques like the double-haul to advanced beginners and intermediate casters. For clients arriving early, a one hour tune up the day before our trip can make a big difference. For more on Jonas' services click here.
Capt Dave Yelverton specializes in light-tackle inshore/nearshore and offshore "deep sea" fishing.† Our photo gallery showcases the quality of fish we find both close to shore in calm water and offshore.† For those anglers wanting to keep fish, we have arrangements with some Pensacola Beach restaurants that will prepare your fresh catch after our day on the water.†Of course Capt Dave is always willing to clean enough fish for your group to take home for dinner that evening.

Our goal is for every guest to have a fabulous experience on the Emerald Coast.† We are happy to assist with lodging, transportation, dining, and non-fishing related activities.†
