If you're looking for a guide extensive local knowledge, look no further than Captain Jimmy; He's been fishing the Florida Panhandle for decades and will use his trade secrets to give you the best fishing experience he can!
For Captain Jimmy, fishing is more than just a job. He loves every moment of being out on the water and strives to show anglers the exciting fishing experience that got him hooked in the first place. His inshore trips are family friendly and great for beginners. Even experienced anglers can enjoy a relaxing day out on the water while catching plenty of fish!
Hop on board with Captain Jimmy and get ready for an action-packed day of fishing the flats in the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village"! The inshore waters around Destin, namely Choctawhatchee Bay, are a great spot to catch some sought-after fish without having to trek into the deep waters. Captain Jimmy will help you target a variety of species on this 4 to 6-hour adventure, including Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. All you'll need to target these picture-worthy fish is classic light tackle with artificial lures or live bait. Whichever fish you want to go after, just let Captain Jimmy know and he'll get you set up with the best bait/lure to get one on the line! He'll even clean any keepers you catch for no additional charge. You’ll be fishing aboard a 18' Pathfinder bay boat that can fit up to 4 anglers. Its 90 HP Yamaha engine will get you where the fish are biting in the beautiful blue Choctawhatchee waters. Captain Jimmy's vessel is equipped with GPS, Fishfinder, a Live Bait Well, and a Wireless Trolling Motor to make your fishing experience as seamless as possible. Captain Jimmy will provide all license,rods, reels, tackle and live bait. We recommend you bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and any food or drinks you might need to keep those energy levels up.

Captain Jimmy was amazing. He took us to the right spots. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to go out into the bay to fish.
I booked a half day trip, and I will definitely be booking again my next trip! It was definitely a great experience!
We caught our limit on trout and almost the limit on red’s!! Had a great time! Thank you Captain Jimmy
Captain Jimmy was awesome! The weather was not co-operating with us, but the Captain did everything that he could to get us on fish. we did catch a few - they just we not big enough to keep (spotted trout were 13" - 14") I think the Captain was more upset about us not catching fish than we were. Thank you Captain Jimmy! …
Captain Jimmy is a gentleman and a scholar! I had one of the best days on the water. This was my first time salt water fishing and he got me hooked 🪝!!
Jimmy thank you for being a great guide and person. You helped make the trip memorable we appreciate it very much.
