Types of Fishing

Our most popular trip, travel into deep Gulf waters to drop weighted lines around natural and artificial reefs that serve as proven fish habitat.  Types of “reef fish” targeted during bottom fishing include Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper, Amberine, Triggerfish, etc.  A minimum of 6 hours required for Bottom Fishing.  We recommend a full day for the most productive bottom fishing.

Offshore Trolling

Inshore Trolling

Cobia Sightfishing

Types of FishingA Springtime tradition in Destin, Cobia fishing occurs from mid March thru early May during their annual migration through Northwest Florida.  Cobia fishing is an exciting team sport requiring all onboard to have a specified role from spotting to landing the fish.   The expert crew man the tower to spot and hook the Cobia, then anglers on deck are handed the rod to contest and land the strong and fiesty fish.  Be ready for a real fight.

Extended Voyage

joemarlinAn extended voyage is designed for those in search of “Big Game” trophy fish.  Requiring a minimum of 18 hours, you often depart at night headed to your “hunting grounds.”  Don’t worry, we have enough bunks onboard for all to get a little shut-eye before the action begins.   You will wake up to experience the “first bite” of the day.  Targeted fish include Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Tuna, Wahoo, etc.

Bay Fishing

Prefer to fish the back bay waters for gamefish using light tackle? We’ve got you covered. Bay Fishing is typically done around the East Pass, Destin Bridge, local bayous, grassy flats, and Choctawhatchee Bay where there is a mix of salt, brackish, and fresh-waters.  We use light tackle with live bait, as well as lures and jigs to target an array bay and inshore fish species to include Speckled Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, Mackerel, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, etc.  Bay Fishing is an ideal half day charter trip.
