Knotical Adventures - Miss Nell

1201 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE
Fort Walton Beach FL, United States

Captain Tim O’Malley was born and raised in Stock Island, Key West, and grew up as a fourth generation angler in a family of fishermen. Having fished the entire Gulf of Mexico from Key West to Corpus Christi and everywhere in between for several decades, he knows the area’s waters as well or even better than anyone.

Captain Tim has owned his own boat since he was a teenager, and spent the majority of his life as a well respected commercial fisherman. Once he retired from commercial fishing, he turned his hand to charter fishing, which he has found to be the perfect channel for his passion and love for the sea.

Miss Nell is a 25 ft Stapleton boat that has ample room on deck for four anglers to hold a line without getting under each others’ feet. It is the perfect vessel for you to experience the thrill of the sea from the viewpoint of a commercial captain, while also providing the comfort and relaxation of a fishing charter.

During your trip you will be able to practice tried and tested commercial techniques, including fishing with handlines, one of the most enjoyable - and challenging - ways of pulling in your target fish. However, you will also get the chance to fish the conventional style with rods and reels should you prefer. Whichever style you choose, Captain Tim is sure you will have an absolute blast and will remember the experience for years to come!

Capt. Tim was the best guide I think anyone could ever have. He has a very unique way of fishing that will bring you in lots of fish. The best fishing is in the early morning hours. But, if you choose a later time like we did you still catch plenty. I could not have found a better boat and captain. It’s a small charter for small group of people and it’s just right. I will definitely be going back next year and will definitely be choosing Captain Tim again. Thank you Tim for such an awesome experience!
