Every passionate angler dreams of exploring the waters of ‘The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village’ and Let’s Fish Destin will make those dreams come true in their own unique way. Captain Jordan Smith specializes in providing his customers with a unique fishing experience, perfectly tailored to their preference and experience level. From avid anglers, beginners, weekend warriors, and families with kids, he has something for everyone.

He invites you for an exciting day out on his 22’ Cape Horn center console. It’s equipped with a strong and reliable 225 HP Honda engine, all the necessary safety gear and Garmin navigational electronics. It also has a live bait tank, ice-boxes, and a tower for those Cobia-chasing lovers out there.

The captain will take you and up to 5 other fishermen patrolling the waters of Destin, anywhere from inshore to offshore. He’ll also show you the sweetest spots near reefs teeming with various species. Your targets will be whatever you set your mind to!

The boat is perfect for light tackle fishing for the likes of Redfish and Speckled Trout in the shallows, but also for hitting the deeper waters in pursuit of big boys such as Snappers, Groupers, Mackerel, and Amberjacks. For the most adventurous anglers, there are bow fishing and night fishing trips, and Let’s Fish Destin can even take you Shark hunting.

This charter will provide all the necessary fishing gear, including live bait - you’ll have the unique opportunity to catch your own bait during the trip. You’ll also find two bows on board, but keep in mind that minimum age for bow fishing trips is 5. No age limit for the other trips though! So bring your whole family or fishing buddies and see what Destin fishing is all about!

I have been fishing my entire life and been working as a captain for the previous 12 years. I love fishing more than anything, and I'm not planning on doing anything else professionally. Being on the water is something I like the most about the job. You can only be relaxed when you are out on the water.
