About the Captain

Hunter Ray
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, United States
Member since October 2016
A passionate outdoorsman, Captain Hunter Ray grew up fishing the Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. His family has been on the water for generations, and Captain Hunter was introduced to the fishing business at an early age. As he grew up, he spent countless hours working as a deckhand for his family’s shrimping business, which gave him a thorough knowledge of the local waters and all their inhabitants. Nowadays, he translates this knowledge to his clients by providing fun local inshore fishing trips that stand out because of his local knowledge and family friendly attitude.

Pick up point was conveniently located, although 18 miles from our hotel in Destin, it was easy to find and right at the boat. Caught a lot of big fish, but wish we could have kept more to eat. Great trip overall.

Captain Early was an absolute pleasure to be with. The fish were not very active. I caught a redfish and trout and my son caught a few small fish. Captain Early allowed us to stay longer than our four hour limit to increase our chances late evening. We’d probably recommend fishing in morning rather than the extreme heat of afternoon. Though the fishing was slow, we enjoyed our time with Captain Early and the beauty of the bay!
