About Your Trip

Get offshore and go after some classic sportfishing species with Captain Jonathan, an experienced saltwater angler and a top-tier guide in Destin. You'll chase a range of big-time fish, including Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, and Sharks, as well as bottomfish such as Grouper and Snapper.

Captain Jonathan knows how to put you on the fish, but once the rod is in your hands, its just you versus the fastest pelagic predators that the Gulf has to
offer! Be prepared to go up against some exciting, hard-fighting fish as well as big, heavy line-snappers. The Captain will come prepare with everything you need to hook up, including rods, reels, bait, tackle, and most importantly, his expertise and experience.

On the morning of the trip, you'll set to aboard his 31' sportfisher, a beautiful boat that's perfect for the nearshore and offshore waters of the Gulf. It's equipped with all the necessary gear and amenities to give you both a successful and comfortable charter experience. To maximize your time, make sure to bring proper clothing, a hat, polarized sunglasses, and sunscreen!

Captain Jonathan is a top-rated fishing charter captain from Shalimar, FL. Prior to launching his fishing business he served honorably in the United States Army. Captain Jonathan served in the Army for fifteen years and was medically discharged after receiving a purple heart in Afghanistan. When he came back to the states all he could think about was launching a fishing business of his own.

Captain Jon was raised by a fishing family. His grandfather was a highly regarded deep
sea fishing charter captain in the Destin, Florida area. When John returned home after serving in the Army he came across a book passed down by his grandfather. In that book was a list of GPS coordinates marking his grandfather's favorite Deep Sea fishing spots off of Destin and Fort Walton Beach. Jon fished those secret spots handed down from his grandfather and further developed his deep sea fishing skills and ultimately launched a successful fishing charter business of his own near Destin FL.

To this day, Captain Jon loves fishing the same spots his grandfather did and seeing the excitement on the faces of his guests as they hook into fish like Mahi Mahi and Red Snapper. His enthusiasm for fishing is what sets him apart from others in the area. He has dedicated his life to helping others fulfill their dreams of catching the big one. Even if it is your first time holding a rod, his high level of knowledge and experience will help you connect with some seriously huge fish! He uses different fishing techniques such as Trolling, Light Tackle, Deep Sea Fishing, Jigging, and a lot more.

He has a 34' Tiara sportfishing boat which he uses to fish. This vessel is your perfect boat to go offshore. It will allow you to reach all of the best secret fishing spots near Destin and Fort Walton Beach quickly and comfortable. Captain Jon can take up to six guests on board on every trip.

Have the time of your life Deep Sea fishing with captain Jon in Destin and Fort Walton Beach!

Capt John was absolutely amazing and we will be contacting him again when we come back for another great adventure. The weather was cold, windy, rough and going in was never suggested. He did anything and everything he could to make this trip a success and man did he deliver. Thank you Capt John for an unforgetable day on the water. Can't wait for round two!!

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