Captain Travis has been guiding the Destin waters for over 20 years and has become quite an expert when it comes to the best spots and the best fish. He has fished them for over 4 decades now, amassing quite a lot of experience. He's a true local, born and raised (and fished!) in the area. He got his love for fishing from his mom, who was an avid angler. After decades of catching fish and chasing trophies, Capt. Travis finds the same joy in helping his customers catch their own trophies. He says that the joy of seeing his customer hook their personal best is the same as hooking it yourself! He works with an experienced crew who love to make their customers enjoy their adventure and relax at the same time.
