Lady Luck Adventures invites you to spend a day on the waters of Okaloosa Island, Florida with Captain Gabrielle Mercado. She specializes in light tackle inshore fishing and nearshore wreck fishing for a multitude of desirable species.

Captain Gabrielle offers three, four, and five-hour trips in the daytime and the nighttime to the inshore waters and the nearshore wrecks. You can target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Pompano, and Spanish Mackerel, in the shallow water. Kingfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, and Red Snapper, and Groupers can all be targeted in the deeper waters.

Fishing is done aboard a 21-foot Nautic Star center console originally built in 2014 with a 4 person capacity. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, this boat gets you to the fishing grounds in a flash.

The vessel also has a wireless trolling motor for super shallow trolling, an icebox for the catch, a livewell for the bait, and all the safety equipment you might need. The boat is equipped with top of the range GPS and fish finding equipment.

Lady Luck Adventures will provide all the fishing gear you might need such as rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and a fishing license. Captain Gabrielle can also clean and fillet you fish so you can enjoy eating your own day’s catch.

For the best fun in the sun for the entire family with an experienced and passionate guide, book Captain Gabrielle Mercado and Lady Luck Adventures.

Captain Gabrielle was born and raised in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and has fished with her father ever since she could walk. She has traveled all over the world fishing wherever she went. Some of the most memorable experiences are fly fishing for Bonefish in the sandy flats of the Bahamas and catching giant Mekong Catfish in Thailand on a chicken thigh. Gabrielle is a knowledgable Captain and her passion for putting people on fish is on display with every trip she takes. She is great with children and makes sure everyone knows the best techniques to land the big fish!
