Great Southern Fishing Charters

Great Southern Fishing is your perfect choice for a fun day of fishing! Choose one of their trips, come on down with your loved ones, and let Captain Benjamin Knight do the rest.

His 24’ Blazer Bay center console can comfortably accommodate a party of 6, where 4 can fish at the same time. It’s equipped with all the necessary safety and navigation gear so you can focus on the fishing itself and leave nothing to chance.

Capt. Ben fishes using a variety of techniques like trolling, popping, and spinning, making his choice depending on the fish you are after. The light and medium tackle the Captain provides is all brand new, top of the line Penn gear. Live bait is usually prepared for you before the trip.

On his 6-hour trips, he can go up to 8 miles, weather permitting, but often fishes inshore and nearshore. No matter how far out you go, this type of trip gives you the biggest chance to target a variety of fish like Flounder, Bull Shark, Kingfish, and more. But if Speckled Trout, Redfish, Bluefish, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper are what you want on your hook, then his 4-hour trip is the right choice for you.

Fishing licenses for all anglers are provided. Any fish you decide to keep at the end of your trip, the crew will happily clean for you. Tips in the 15-20% range are always appreciated.

The captain recommends you wear closed-toed shoes and bring any food and beverages you want. The cooler on board will keep them nice and fresh during your trip.

Come aboard with Great Southern Fishing Charters and take your family fishing in style!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I was born and raised in Florence, AL and have fished my whole life. I started guiding in 2014 and have loved every minute of it. Everything from Bill to Trout fishing I enjoy but it’s taking families out that is my absolute favorite. Nothing compares to seeing a child catch their first fish, and knowing you had a part in bringing about such joy. Bring your families to my boat and you’ll have them hooked on fishing in no time!
