About the Captain

Nathan Putney
Destin, Florida, United States
Member since January 2017
Captain Nathan started fishing in Destin in 1998 on a charter boat Donna Renee. He has fished his entire life. His first son was born 2004 and started sharing his passion for fishing with him. Captain Nathan spent the next 9 years as a captain in Oilfield but still fished on his off time with his oldest son and helped friends out in Destin on their boats. Finally, a year and a half ago, he decided to start working with the Vengeance along with his son Evan. Captain Nathan loves taking kids out on the water and seeing them smile.

My wife, 3 children and I chartered a 6 hour trip with Capt. Nathan. We brought a cooler of drinks, sandwiches and snacks. Never got to touch that until the ride back in because our rods were bent the entire time. While bottom-fishing, we caught a large number of mingo (sp?) snappers (mini red snappers - see photo). Snagged a few bonitas while trolling between fishing spots. In addition we caught some nice-sized king mackerel, amberjack (not allowed to keep), and our two-prized cobia catches. Finished the day with a 45 minute fight with a bull shark (easily 300lbs).  Capt Nathan, 1st mate Case and 2nd mate Evan were fantastic. My oldest son is the only true fisherman in the family so we needed some coaching. The crew was very patient, very knowledgeable and very passionate about fishing! It was a great experience for the whole family and I would hire them again the next time I visit Destin.

Thanks for the review Anthony. It was definitely a full day of fishing crammed into a short trip. We love to see the rods doubled over and catching fish on every drop. You guys did a phenomenal job catching those prized cobia and battling the mighty bull shark. We hope to see you again soon.
