Boggy Bayou Guide Service

Boggy Bayou Guide Service specializes in family-friendly fishing trips out of Destin. After just one trip with the crew, you will know why Destin is called the “world’s luckiest fishing village”.

Boggy Bayou Guide Service especially enjoys sharing their wealth of local knowledge with their younger anglers. With families of their own, the captains share the same mentality when it comes down to a family-friendly time. Take your kids with you introduce them to fishing. There is nothing like seeing a child’s smile when they reel in their first fish!

If you want to test the waters close to the shore, you will absolutely enjoy fishing with light tackle on the Choctawhatchee Bay. There are plenty of fish that patrol the waters, such as Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, and Flounder. And if you’re not after the “Grand Slam”, head up to 10 miles out for some deep sea fishing. Catch Snapper, Amberjack, Tuna, Triggerfish, Mahi-Mahi… and even Shark if you are looking for a thrill.

Hang on and enjoy the ride aboard the “Lethal Mission”. This is a 33’ Albema Offshore sportfisher, which comes powered by a pair of 350 HP Caterpillar engines. Lethal Mission is outfitted with the latest in navigational electronics and all the necessary safety equipment. There is plenty of space for up to six guests to fish in comfort and relax in between bites.

Boggy Bayou Guide Service will provide you with license, quality gear, tackle, and bait. When you return to the shore, the captain will clean and fillet your catch. All you need to bring on board is something to eat and drink.

Captain Jayson Self began his fishing career with vacations to Destin back in 1985. Catfishing and Pinfishing got him hooked for life. Jayson spent next four summers in Destin with his family, where he fished weekly with Captain Tommy Browning, the local legend. By the late 1980’s, Jayson was a tournament angler, having fished with no other than his own mother as a teammate. But it wasn’t until 2015, when Jayson was finally able to realize the family dream of having his own charter boat. He now makes a living fishing full time and is exceptional at what he does.
