Our father-son duo are both native to the area and strive to provide you with an enjoyable day on the water. While catching a limit of fish is not always guaranteed, our guides are willing to go the distance to ensure you are provided the best opportunity at doing so. We pride ourselves on the relations we are able to build and we look forward to seeing you and your families for many years to come. 

Hunter Forbes, 30A Fishing Guide
Hunter Forbes

From poling you within casting distance of a hungry Redfish, putting your child on their first fish, or getting big groups of Redheads to consistently commit to the decoys, Hunter is your man to make it happen! 

Being a native to the area, Hunter has grown up hunting and fishing the local waters surrounding the Emerald Coast his entire life. On the water every chance he had, Hunter's passion for the outdoors and teaching others has rightfully escalated into guiding clients.  



Troy Forbes

Local artist and fishing guide, Troy is a lifelong resident of the Florida Panhandle. Captain Troy has fished the waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico for more than 40 years.

"We are just doing what we have always done, enjoying what this area has blessed us with, and thankful to share it with our clients. "Although he enjoys a variety of fishing techniques, sight fishing is what he is most passionate about. "There is nothing quite like watching a fish eat your bait!"


His other obsessions include wingshooting and archery.
