Captain Nick was born and raised in Rome, Georgia. He graduated from Rome High School and joined the Electrical Union in Atlanta, Georgia where he completed a 5 year apprenticeship program that allowed him to become a third generation Electrician. He quickly worked his way up through the Electrical field and into Electrical Construction Management. However, he wanted to do more. His love and passion for the Emerald Coast started when he was younger and it was the place he always knew he had to be. He decided he wasn’t getting any younger, so he packed up his life and made the 6 hour trip south for good!

Nick applied for his Captains license, bought a boat and is now sharing his passion with everyone.

In the bay, you can catch Redfish, Speckled Seatrout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, flounder and more. His Gulf of Mexico offshore trips give you the chance to catch a large variety of fish without traveling that far away! In the gulf you can fish for American Red Snapper, Amberjacks, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Trigger Fish, Grouper, King Mackerel, Tuna and more.

He was a great guy. With a very nice boat and he was very helpful the whole time and made sure we had a blast. We limited out on fish quickly and caught more than 120 fish. Loved the experience and would want to do it again.

Nick was awesome. The Cape Horn rode wonderfully out to the first drop. Put us on the snapper fast. We pulled up 7 foot monster shark. What a fight! Just a great time all the way around. Thanks Capt Nick.

We got passed down on fishing trips 3 times and finally Captain Nick got back to us. He was excellent with communication in trying to get our trip booked. We not only caught our limit, we caught several good sized fish. I would book again!

We had a great time with Nick. I love when a guide is so determined to get you on the fish that they’re almost stressed when they’re not biting. Nick refused to allow the fish to hide. He busted his butt to get everyone to their red snapper limit and we even ended up fishing a bit over the time we had allotted to make sure we had our best shot. We had a blast, and I would definitely recommend Nick. We’re going home with a cooler full of snapper, so that’s a win!

We did in shore fishing with Nick and he was great to be around… We had four with two experienced kids and one amateur adult. Nick was great with all of us and put us on the fish! I judge a successful charter based on did we have fun (yes), did we laugh (yes), were my kids happy (yes) and lastly did we catch fish (yes). Fish tacos that night for 20 were an added plus! I’ll be calling Nick next year!

Had a great time out today. The fish didn’t cooperate but the experience was great….it is fishing….

Matty L.

Fishing

Captain Nick was a blast. Super down to earth and knowledgeable about fishing the Destin/Ft Walton waters. He was very accommodating, kind, and generally excited to be out fishing. Once we found the fish we limited out (15 Spanish Mackerel per person) in about 45 minutes. Furthermore, he didn’t force me to use his website to book. He called me personally to discuss all options and planning. I would 100% go fishing with him again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Had a great time with a few inexperienced anglers. Captain Nick helped us beat the weather, find a variety of fish quickly, keep things entertaining but also safe. Would recommend the trip - looking forward to a summer trip off shore 👍
