Awesome Time

about 3 months ago
We had a fantastic time!! We told the captain that we were looking for quantity over quality and he produced. It was my sons first time, so we weren’t concerned about keeping anything that we caught. I just wanted my son to catch some fish and he did just that. Bw 4 people fishing, we probably caught 100+ fish. Jason was a fantastic captain and Vinnie was probably the hardest working assistant in Florida. I will use these guys again when we return to Destin.. Thanks again for a great experience!! Drew

Couldn’t have gone better. Limited out on vermillion snapper. The mate was very informative and was always helping and the Captain knew where to go to always put us on the fish. Had a great time.

The water and wind were rougher than expected, but Captain Jason made the most of it We caught 4 small fish trolling, then switched to shark fishing, where we hooked not 1 but 2 good sized sharks. Incredible experience for my son and family!

We had a great experience with Captain Jason and First Mate Jacob. We caught our limit of Red Snapper several Bonita and topped that off with a 7 foot Hammer Head Shark. The equipment was good the boat comfortable.
