Viking Coastal Charters - Bay

Choose Viking Coastal Charters for your next fishing adventure on Ochlockonee Bay! Capt. Leif Lundquist will give you a personalized experience and professional guidance while fishing inshore for some of Florida’s most popular species. 

Welcome aboard a 21’ fully custom skiff, originally built in 2006 and restored in 2017. This boat was designed with shallow waters in mind, giving you the ability to fish with stealth and dexterity. On board you will find advanced fishing technology along with Penn and Shimano fishing gear. There is room for up to four passengers on board and children are welcome.

Capt. Leif is a professional fisherman with more than 20 years of experience fishing in northern Florida. He will use his expertise to help you target the fish of your choosing based on the best time, location, and technique. You can join him year round and target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Flounder, and more. Your options will vary depending on the season, with Cobia making an appearance in summer while bull Redfish and large Drum become numerous in the rivers during winter.

While fishing with Capt. Leif you may try your hand at various techniques such as trolling, drift fishing, popping, jigging, or live bait fishing. He can also take you gigging for Sheepshead, Mullet, and Flounder when you join him in the evening. You can keep your catch and Capt. Leif will clean and fillet it for you.

Viking Coastal Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need. Trip times are flexible based on your requests and fishing conditions.

Come aboard today for great fishing and a memorable experience!

Capt. Leif was born and raised in Florida. His passion for fishing began as a young boy when he spent much of his time in Angelo and Son's Seafood Restaurant in Panacea. He started fishing off of the back deck of the restaurant and hasn't stopped fishing since. Capt. Leif works as a professional fisherman and competes in tournaments from time to time, where he has experienced great success. He now offers guided fishing trips through Viking Coastal Charters, from the Econfina River and St. Marks to Ochlockonee Bay. He says, "I love being on the water and putting somebody on their first fish, or even their best fish."
