Destin's Boggy Bayou Inshore Charters

Andrew Drive
Valparaiso FL, United States

Destin’s Boggy Bayou Inshore Charters invites you and your family on a fishing trip in Choctawhatchee Bay, Florida. You will start your trip from Valparaiso where the charter is located and sail into the bay and bayous that surround it. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Dexter Early who is very child-friendly and loves taking families with kids fishing.

Captain Dexter will take you out on his 18-foot Tracker aluminum fishing boat, originally built in 2016. It is powered by a 60 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This awesome speed means you can move from one productive spot to the next very quickly, and not lose out on the fishing time.

The vessel is fully equipped with the necessary USCG approved safety equipment, and contains all up to date electronics such as a fishfinder and a GPS. There is also a livewell on board for the baits, as well as rods, reels, tackle, live baits, and lures. Your trip also includes a fishing license.

Destin’s Boggy Bayou Inshore Charters will take you fishing for Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead using a variety of techniques. For example, you can use live bait to catch a lot of different fish or be selective and target larger fish with artificial baits.

Captain Dexter also offers Flounder gigging adventures which concentrate on targeting Flounder exclusively. You will do this by using the supplied gigging pole that has multi-pronged spears attached on one end. Once you spot Flounder, which lie camouflaged on the sea bed, you probe them with the pole and take them out.

Destin’s Boggy Bayou Inshore Charters try to tailor their charters to the skill level and desire of the client. So book a trip and let Captain Dexter know what you want to catch, and he’ll take you there!

***The boat can accommodate up to 3 adults, plus 1 small child, or 2 adults plus 2 children, or 1 adult plus 3 children. ***
