Bow’d Up - Capt. Brady Bowman

10 Harbor Blvd
Destin FL, United States

Hop aboard for a day of angling fun and games in the world’s luckiest fishing village and hook a prized catch you’ll want to brag about! Team up with Captain Brady Bowman for a spectacular day on the most bountiful waters of the area and discover how extraordinary fishing can be.

Captain’s boat is a 52’ offshore beauty with all the comforts of home on the waves. She’s got more than enough room to take up to 13 people to new fishing horizons and twin 602 HP Cummins engines that will easily keep you on the hot bite for the day. The vessel is decked out with the top-of-the-line fishfinding and navigational electronics, as well as high-quality fishing gear to help you reel your catch into the boat.

On board, you will also find a private toilet, an air-conditioned salon to get a break from the sun, and beds for a bit of rest after all the fishing battles you’ve won. Whatever you could possibly need on your angling jaunt, Capt. Brady will provide, and after you’re back at the dock, the first mate will clean and fillet the catch for you. He works very hard to help you with anything you need while you’re on the boat, and for all his effort, 20% tip is customary and appreciated.

When it comes to the species you’ll target, a lot depends on the season and technique you’ll use, but chances are, you’re in for a challenging, but rewarding time on the rod. Amberjack, Red Snapper, and Grouper are the favorites you can expect when bottom fishing.

If you’re up for a chase after pelagic A-listers, then you can look forward to seeing Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, and many more on your line. If you decide to go on a multi-day expedition, then you’ll get a chance to tag Sailfish and Blue Marlin, the aristocrats of the underwater world.

Bring your favorite snacks and drinks, as well as lunch for longer trips. Capt. Brady of Bow’d Up makes it his business to put you on the catch of your life, so come along and fish your heart out!

    Spend most of your day on the water and the great bite that only Destin fishery can offer. You will be chasing anything from King Mackerel, Triggerfish, and Amberjack to Vermilion and Red Snapper.
