Captain Si Nelson & Nelson Guide Company welcomes you to the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village Destin, Florida!
Come aboard “Jack ‘Em Up” - a 24’ Carolina Skiff that can comfortably accommodate 6 people with a cruising speed of 25 knots, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the wind on your face. She is a rugged fishing machine, but exceptionally child-friendly.
Captain Si offers a wide range of angling trips. Conventional fishing trips will give you an opportunity to see what backcountry fishing has to offer you. If you feel ready for more action, then nearshore reef fishing will blow your mind! Anything from Red Snapper to Kingfish, Bull Shark to Sheepshead is in the cards and it’s all on light tackle!
If you’re an avid fly angler, Nelson Guide Company has specialized trips for you. Capt. Si is an experienced guide and he knows how to set you up for the perfect presentation. Bring your own gear for these trips. Capt. Si is very generous, and never hesitates to share one of his own hand tied patterns to “match the hatch.”
When you’re craving something more fast-paced and exciting, bow fishing is the way to go. It sounds impossible, but it’s actually incredibly fun, especially when you’re doing it with friends!
New to fishing or looking to up your game? For a limited time only, Capt. Si will be offering his “Fishing Clinic” experience. He’ll walk you through all the fishing basics and help you catch your bucket list trophy!
Most trips include everything you’ll need, so don’t worry about bringing anything more than sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and your favorite snack/beverage. Capt. Nelson will gladly answer all your questions and help you with your catch, so showing your gratitude in tips is encouraged (15% customary, 20% complimentary).
Nelson Guide Company has one of Destin’s most ruggedly handsome boats, an experienced Captain, and loves chasing trophy fish and making trophy memories. So, what are you waiting for - Book now and let the fun begin!
