Fishing on 30A: What’s Biting in the Gulf?

Captain Mark Thompson (left) of Fishy Booty Charters

Whether it’s bottom fishing for red snapper or grouper, snagging a shark, or trolling for mackerel, 30A has plenty of offshore fishing opportunities. In fact, charters launch directly from the sand at Grayton Beach all season long, so there’s no need to head over to Destin or Panama City for your deep sea excursions.

Captain Mark Thompson of Fishy Booty Charters sat down with 30A Radio to chat about what you can catch in the Gulf of Mexico, the excitement of hooking a shark, and his background in scuba diving and spear-fishing.
