Launch with Captain Bobby for a 4-5 hour adventure for some to take home some delicious fish and fill the freezer with some rod bending action. Captain Bobby's boat is one of the nicest and newest Center Consoles in the Destin fishing fleet equipped with a Sea Keeper for enhanced stability on your way out and while you're out there. This incredible device provides a gyroscope effect to eliminate the effect of the chop out on the ocean! This Sea Keeper will be put to good use for you too: After you get settled in and Captain Bobby will crank up his twin 300 Yamahas, you will motor out 40 min to an hour out to get to the fishing grounds. Once out there, Captain Bobby will help you hone in on one species. Everything will be provided for you aboard his boat, if you'd like to save some time you can buy your live bait on your way out from the dock for around 60$. This will give you some extra fishing time so you won't have to catch it while your out there. This is the perfect trip for getting dinner, a kids trip, or to do catch and release. Read More
