Chase the big sportfish like Tuna, Sailfish, and Marlin with Captain Nelson in Miami, FL!...Read More
Launch aboard the Captain Nelson's 60' Hatteras for a first-class sportfishing fishing experience out of Pier 5. With years of experience fishing the deep waters off the coast of Miami, Captain Nelson will put all of his knowledge toward getting you on the fish safely and in style!
After you get settled in at Pier 5 (where Nelson keeps his boat), and Captain Nelson cranks up the engines, you need only motor out a couple miles to do some awesome deepwater trolling. The beauty of Miami's incredible fishery is that the gulf stream is only 2 miles offshore, where big pelagics like Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna cruise as they migrate up and down the atlantic ocean. No need to spend half your trip motoring back and for from the fishing grounds!
You are welcome to get as involved as you would like with your adventure as well, whether you'd rather lounge until the reel starts screaming or if you want your hand on the rod to set the hook, Captain Nelson can make it happen!
Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Nelson also provides the finest fishing tackle available worldwide. Thus, all you need to bring are your favorite lunch, snack, and drink, your sun protection, maybe a towel, and your camera! Otherwise, Captain Nelson and his mate will take care of the rest to make the most of your Destin saltwater adventure!
Captain Nelson is a seasoned fisherman with over 30 years of experience in Florida Waters. He has cruised and fished all of the Caribbean, Cozumel, Cancun, Belize, Cabo San Lucas, and Panama....Read More
