About Your Trip

The Captain’s Choice charter trips include 1 hour of light tackle trolling, followed by 4 hours of shark fishing! Fun for the whole family!

We are located behind Dewey Destin’s on the harbor. We share a parking lot with Luther’s Pontoon and Dewey’s. Please pull all the way down the hill to the water the morning of (free parking) and we can get everyone loaded up.

We recommend you bring drinks/snacks and sunscreen. It will
be hot! But we do have AC inside the boat as well as a restroom.

We leave the dock at 5:30am so we ask if you could try and come a few minutes early so we can get everyone signed in and load your bags on the boat.

A run down of our trolling charters: We have out 3-4 rods at a time and are continuously moving. We will pull lures through the water as we cruise through the Emerald Coast. You'll get to see an amazing sunrise (and probably some dolphins). Our targeted species are king Mackerel, Spanish mackerel, and bonitas. Light tackle trolling is fun for all ages, and the bite lately has been great first thing in the morning.

A run down of our shark fishing charters: We make our way to our shark fishing spot, which is only about 10 mins away/less than a mile off shore. Then we will then throw the anchor and chum the waters with carcasses from the previous day and get our 3 big shark rods out. We have them all at different levels, one at the bottom, one mid-water and one floating on top. After we get those out and everyone is comfy we will get a couple of bottom fishing rods out to try and catch some snappers, trigger fish, etc. This is what we will do while we wait for the shark bite. The sharks will smell our chum and come to us so we have to be patient. Once we get the shark hooked up, we will get all of the other rods reeled in, throw the poly ball connected to our anchor and fight the shark. This way we can move with the shark and back down on him if needed.

I hope this was helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to fishing with y'all.

Stellar Review for an Unforgettable Fish Charter Experience

Our recent fish charter experience with Captain Katie and her first mate, Nick, was nothing short of phenomenal! I took my 13 and 11-year-old boys shark fishing, and Captain Katie did not disappoint. We landed an impressive 9' tiger shark that gave us an exhilarating challenge and wore us out in the best way possible.

The excitement didn't stop there. Captain Katie expertly guided us to prime spots...

We landed an impressive 9' tiger shark that gave us an exhilarating challenge and wore us out in the best way possible.

The excitement didn't stop there. Captain Katie expertly guided us to prime spots
where we caught mackerel, bonita, and snapper, keeping the adrenaline high and the action continuous.

We go charter fishing every year, and I can confidently say that this was the most enjoyable and memorable trip we've ever had. The crew's professionalism, expertise, and friendly demeanor made the entire experience exceptional. I highly recommend this crew for anyone looking for an unforgettable fishing adventure!
