Captain Steven Pixley is the man at the helm of “Big Deal,” an impressive 30’ Ocean sport fishing vessel that’s built to handle the most extreme fishing conditions possible. Capt.

She can accommodate up to 6 guests, with plenty of deck space and seating to provide a seriously comfortable experience. She’s equipped with fish finder and GPS to give you that special edge when it comes to keeping on top of the fish, and there’s a full toilet on board, too.

If you want to fill your freezer with some delicious bottom fish, Capt. Steve will take you to Destin’s famous reefs and wrecks, where you’ll find Red Snapper, Amberjack, Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Triggerfish and more. If you’d rather troll nearshore waters, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and even Sailfish are all up for grabs. Offshore, you’ll have the chance to battle big game such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, as well as gigantic Shark species.

Capt. Steve will make sure you’re decked out with top-quality rods and reels, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. He’ll even clean and fillet your catch for you, too. Come aboard Reel Deal Destin LLC and find out why Destin’s angling opportunities really are a “Big Deal”!
