Types of Fishing

Bottom Fishing: The most common way of fishing techniques, used to catch fish that are found near the sea floor.

Trolling: A method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water behind a boat. Each paid person will take turns reeling in the fish.

Check the ticket descriptions to see what type of fish you are likely to catch on each trip.

  • Gratuity of 15-20% is customary for crew.
  • Public parking is available for a fee.
  • Longer trip variations than what is bookable online are available however customers must call to book these longer trips.
  • There is a restroom on board the boat.
  • The captain may be required to catch live bait during your trip that may impact trip time. This is customary and part of the fishing experience.
  • The captain or mate will fillet and bag any fish that the customer catches on the trip. Please tip appropriately for all the hard work that is done on the trip.
  • Customers will be fishing on a 30ft cabin cruiser with twin Cummings diesel engines.
  • There are no guarantees that the customer will catch the target species, but the captain has a very high success rate in finding and catching certain species.
  • If it rains, charters will still go out fishing depending on the customer preference. However, if there is excessive fog, wind, or lightning, the trip will not go. Trips are always decided based on the captains discretion. Trip will either reschedule or be refunded to the customer.
Cancellation policy

Customers that cancel more than 48 hours prior to arrival will be charged 1 hours worth of trip time plus a $5 service fee. Cancellations within 48 hours of arrival are not eligible for refund unless the captain has to call off the trip (weather, maintenance, etc.). In this case, another day will be scheduled or the customer may opt for a full refund. No refunds will be given once the customer boards the boat. No shows will not be refunded.

We take a trip on this boat every year and Capt Steve and Zach never disappoint us! Booking is always easy, we get an email and texted confirmation booking thru Tripshock. On this trip we really wanted to catch some triggerfish so we booked a 6hr morning trip. Parking behind Brotula's was easy and the boat was ready for us to board. Your trips are always half travel time, half fishing time so plan accordingly and think smart about what you want to catch and what's in season. You can go to the myfwc.com website to check out the chart. Anyways, we caught some live bait just out of the pass and then traveled for a bit. We moved fishing spots a few times and it wasn't long before we had our limit of triggerfish, white snapper and mingo snapper. Since we still had some time left, Steve asked if we wanted to catch some "photo worthy fish" so we headed over to a hot spot and caught some nice gag grouper, red snapper and amber jack! We couldn't keep them because they weren't in season but they were super fun to catch and we got some great pics out of it. Steve and Zach are always professional, a ton of fun, and they explain things so you can understand them. We are already planning our trip for the Destin Fishing Rodeo in October!
