6 Escambia County Fishing Captains Among the Best

Captain Harold Lindo from Reel Irie Fishing Charters in Gulf Breeze

FishingBooker, the largest online platform connecting anglers and fishing guides worldwide, awards its best captains with the Angler’s Choice Award. The exclusive award honors the top captains on the platform for their efforts in providing the best possible fishing experience for their customers. To account for the very seasonal nature of the fishing business, captains can earn the award every three months.


Once a year, however, the top captains of the platform are honored with special recognition. These captains have been working hard to provide the best possible fishing experience for their guests year-round and earned the exclusive reward three times in a row.

Out of 7,242 captains on FishingBooker only 576, or 8%, received this special recognition.

6 captains from Okaloosa County are among the winners! One of the captains operates from Pensacola Beach, while the other 5 are starting their trips from Pensacola. With 31 captains in Pensacola that are registered on FishingBooker, they have a win rate of 16%! Fantastic results!

To be eligible for the award, the charter operators had to meet the following criteria:

  • 4.8+ out of 5-star review score from 10+ verified reviews
  • 98% reliability score or higher
  • 98% response rate or higher
  • Full business verification

Vukan Simic, CEO of FishingBooker, says: “We’ve been awarding the Angler’s Choice Award since 2015. In October 2022, we started releasing the award quarterly with tougher criteria than ever before. We wanted to recognize and honor our most committed captains, and to make it easier for anglers to identify the very best guides on our platform.

Now, we have the pleasure of recognizing a very special group of guides who have earned the award every single time since the new version was introduced. We couldn’t be more excited to honor them for their hard work and dedication.
