Gulf Coast Fishing Charters

Gulf Coast Fishing Charters

Started in 2016, GCFC (Gulf Coast Fishing Charters) has already made a name for ourselves. Top of the line equipment and boat combined with a knowledgeable and friendly captain make each charter special and fun!

Captain Paxton “Pac-Man” Ponson has been fishing the waters of the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the last 25 years along with the waters of Louisiana since he could hold a fishing pole with his father. Speckled trout and redfish was his fathers passion. He moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast at age 15 and started working for some of the top producing charter boats, that’s when his love for offshore took over. He obtained his captains license at age 21 and he continued working in the charter business till age 25. He then starting a family and went to work in the oil field as a Captain in pursuit of professional advancement and for financial security for his wife and two children. With the oilfield in a downturn he’s turning to his passion and expertise of fishing as a means of income.

Feel free to call discuss your kind of fishing trip that you have in mind. He’ll be happy to accommodate in anyway he can. Mississippi Sound, Island, and shark trips are listed with prices, on our Rates page, but special trips can be put together for certain groups. Just call and inquire.
