Last Cast Charters

(11) Just booked!

Last Cast Charters will put you front and center against some of the biggest names in inshore sportfishing. Your guide for the day, Captain Blake Nelson, is a Cobia and Redfish tournament world champion, and he has the right set of skills to get you hooked up real fast!

The captain’s vessel is a 24’ Skeeter Bay Boat, powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine so you can reach the fishing grounds in just 10 minutes. She comes with a wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, GPS, and fishfinder. In addition, there’s a tower above the center console so you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful view of the coastline.

Your main target species are Redfish, Flounder, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, and many more. Destin’s inshore waters are a breeding ground for many species, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to leave with a nice fish that you can cook up for dinner. 

Last Cast Charters is a family-run business, so Capt. Blake invites children of all ages to join in on the fun. He strives to make each trip a memorable and fulfilling experience for everyone and loves having families on board. He’s a patient, knowledgable, and entertaining guide, which is why people love coming back to his boat for more fishing!

Each customer will be provided with state-of-the-art rods and reels by Shimano and Penn. Your fishing license is also covered and Capt. Blake will offer to clean and fillet your catch free of charge. Just come down to the dock 10 minutes before departure to get set up, and feel free to bring some snacks and drinks as well.

Last but not least, don’t forget the sunscreen, and be sure to bring a hat and sunglasses. Get ready for an adventure off the coast of Destin, Florida and let Last Cast Charters show you the time of your life!
