Take a trip with Fish-In-Daze and explore some of the most productive fishing grounds in the world out of Destin! Fishing is Captain Robert Broestler’s biggest passion, and he’ll make sure you leave with a smile on your face and dinner in your hand.

The Fish-In-Daze is a 21’ Cape Horn saltwater fishing boat. Its most striking feature is a high tower fitted with controls that gives a great vantage point from the water. The boat has a jack plated engine that allows it to run in shallow depths, while it also tackles choppier waters nearshore well.

Capt. Rob will accommodate all levels of anglers, providing all the fishing equipment, including live bait. After a beautiful day out enjoying the nice Florida sun and hooking the fish of a lifetime, he’ll clean and fillet your catch for you to take home.

During your trip, you will not only learn to fish with an expert fisherman, but you will also have a great time having fun with mother nature. You can target the biggest of fish for game and sport, or go for the best-tasting species to let your memories of the trip continue onto the table that evening.

You may be trolling the Gulf for King Mackerel, Bonito and, if you’re lucky, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Tuna, and Sailfish. You can also try bottom fishing or spot casting (depending on the season) to land some delicious table fare or test your angling skills.

Bring your kids with you for a fun day in nature, and make some unforgettable family memories. Pack some food and drinks to stay refreshed, as well as some sunscreen, and you’re ready to have fun!

Chase your sense of adventure and join Fish-In-Daze for your chance to explore the prolific waters out of Destin!

It's my passion in life, much more than just a hobby. I find so much thrill and excitement to fight mother nature in the battle to catch the biggest and best fish. It makes the suns heat and time worth it, to be in the middle of the beautiful blue ocean flying through open waters of my next catch. To catch your own dinner every night doing what you love makes you feel at one with nature, it is the only thing I like to do at this point and couldn't imagine life without fishing.
