We told Capt. Ryan that we wanted to catch big fish. He knew where to go to make sure we had a fishing trip to remember. This was the best offshore fishing trip I have ever been on. I will definitely use Capt. Ryan whenever I am in the Destin area. We caught a Nurse Shark and Bonito. It was a great trip!!!

Captain Ryan had warned use that the tide was going to be high and had even offered to refund our payment. Boats under 30ft was advised not to go out but the Champion is over 30ft and our boys had drove down 6hrs after work on Friday getting in after midnight just for this fishing trip on Saturday and was ready to go fishing. It was not a good day to be out fishing but we never felt unsafe at anytime. Captain Ryan handled the boat very well. We caught several fish but most had to be thrown back. Thanks Captain Ryan for taken my guys fishing.
