Buoy Time Charters

Buoy Time Charters invites you down to the sunny shores of Port St Joe to spend the day chasing the Sunshine State’s top inshore species. Jump aboard and have a great time reeling in Redfish, Trout, Tripletail, and more, then head home with a cooler full of tasty fish. This is what Florida fishing is all about.

Captain Michael Bodiford grew up fishing the same waters he now runs charters on. He loves the area, loves the fishing here, and loves sharing it with anglers of any age or experience level. From seasoned pros to young kids, he will get everyone reeling in fish during your time onboard.

Spend the day aboard a 21’ Pro Master bay boat. Fully restored in 2017, she can carry 4 guests in comfort and comes equipped with everything you need for a fun, productive charter. There’s an ice box for your drinks and a full array of safety gear to keep your trip worry-free. You’re also never far from a toilet, so you can spend the day in comfort.

The boat is perfectly designed for exploring these waters in search of big fish. Her GPS combines with the captain’s extensive local knowledge to get you to the best spots in no time. Her livewell keeps your bait fighting fit until it goes in the water. Add in a versatile build that’s as home on the flats as a few miles into the Gulf, and you’re ready for anything.

Capt. Michael offers specialist trips targeting Scallops and Tripletail. Scalloping trips are great for kids and families, as you can get into the water to swim and snorkel as you fill the boat with delicious shellfish. Tripletail is Capt. Michael’s signature species and are some of the tastiest eating out there.

Can’t decide what to target? Book in for a full day trip and take on Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, and even Sharks! Whatever you’re after, you can’t go wrong with a passionate, local guide like Capt. Michael, especially in these legendary waters.
