Josh was very patient with our 5 yr old. We had an excellent time. I recommend Josh for anyone who desires a fun fishing outing.

We had an awesome day out fishing. Captain Josh worked very hard to make sure we caught fish. He had called a couple days before our trip to let us know the bite had been slow due to high temperatures, but with his knowledge and hard work we still caught several. Highly recommend!!

My som (age 10) and I went out this morning on a 4-hour charter, and we had a fantastic time! Super clean boat with plenty of room, and he knew all the best spots for redfish and trout. Captain Josh was great with my son, and I wouldn't hesitate to book with him again.

Great inshore half day trip with Captain Josh! We caught a monster Black Drum and several great eating size Redfish, plus quite a few Mangrove Snapper as well, and afterwards had the Redfish and Snapper cooked to order at a Destin restaurant - it was delicious. Thanks again Captain Josh!

Captain Josh was absolutely awesome! The night fishing trip was a perfect way to experience a different side of Destin’s fishing. He helped us learn what it takes to land some really fun fish. My wife and I both highly recommend booking with Captain Josh and letting him make your vacation even more memorable!
