Rapid Fire Guide Q & A

What’s the biggest fish you’ve caught?
I guess different folks are looking for different answers- It could be a 250lb Shark, a 150lb Sailfish, or a 70lb Wahoo- depending on what you think "counts."
If you were cooking for all your friends what would you cook?
No doubt- fried fish.
How did you get started guiding?
As a direct descendent of the founders of Destin, FL., fishing has been in our blood for literal hundreds of years.
What makes you different from other guides?
The TradeWinds has several unique factors that set us apart: -We are Federally permitted, which puts us well into the minority of charter boats. This allows us to access and harvest fish from Federal waters beyond 9 miles offshore. -The TradeWinds is a full, 360 degree, walk-around vessel. So you won't be crammed on the back of the boat fishing on top of the rest of your group or having to take turns. You can spread out. (Our cabin is also air-conditioned with 2 full restrooms!) -That stuff is marvelous, but the heart and soul of the TradeWinds is the people that serve you. Our Captain, a USMC Veteran diver, has 50+ years experience captaining, and deckhands all have 20+ years saltwater fishing experience- so no matter what, you've got 70+ years of expertise at your back.

First Mate, Ron, is great with the kids and patient with the "big kids" that don't know squat about salt water fishing!

What a great day fishing. We caught so many fish. Best trip I’ve had on a charter boat. Captain was on point and the crew was helpful and took care of us. We will be a return customer.

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs.

Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
