Fish-N-Fool

Fish-N-Fool aims to be the first choice for all your fun family fishing needs in Destin, Florida. Captain Casey has been fishing the waters offshore for more than 20 years now, and know the fishery like the back of his hand. With his help, a good time on the water is guaranteed! He’ll be joined by First Mate Derek, who is very family-orientated and polite.

Hop on board the 40’ Infinity offshore sportfisher boat that runs on a pair of 900 HP Cummins diesel engines. This boat was made with comfort in mind, which is why it has things like an air-conditioned interior and toilet. When you’re spending a whole day on the water, amenities like these make so much better.

Destin itself is easily one of the best places in the entire US to go deep water fishing. Anglers from all over come to fish for the likes of Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper (when in season), Amberjack, Swordfish, and others. After all, this is the “World’s luckiest fishing village!”

Children of all ages are welcome on board. For really small children, parents will need to bring life vests along. The half-day trips are perfect for family groups with young children or grandparents.

For the experienced angler, you’ll want to join the Swordfishing trip. This will take you far out to fish deep waters for this awesome predator.

Capt. Casey will make sure you have everything you need for a productive trip, including rods, reels, terminal tackle, and the necessary fishing licenses. All you need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, along with some drinks and snacks if you’re feeling like it.

Everyone in your group will have a great time fishing with Capt. Casey. When you set sail on the Fish-N-Fool, you’re in for an adventure to remember!

Captain Casey has been fishing in Destin for over 25 years, as well as spending time fishing all over Central America and Hawaii. He's a Fish-n-Fool – he fishes all the time and really loves it. He enjoys having a good time out on the water with his customers. For him, nothing beats reeling in a huge Blue Marlin – who wouldn't be excited at that?!
