Had a great day on the water with Judah!  Most exciting day of our kids trip catching a shark.  He made the dreams come true!  An amazing experience.  If you come fishing in Destin you best book the Stelluna!  Will definitely be booking this boat and Captain again.

CPT Judah was a great guy and knew exactly where to go. This was the best experience we have had in all of our previous trips in and around Florida and we caught the most fish ever. Cpt Judah on the Stelluna is our guy from now on.

Great first deep sea fishing trip for our family. Captain Judah got us on the fish quickly and we continued to haul them in throughout our morning trip. This was the first time my 3 kids had ever been out on the ocean and Captain Judah made them feel comfortable and at ease right away. Strongly recommend. We will be back one day soon for some snapper fishing.

We went on a morning trip as a family of four (two teenagers) and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Judah was laid back, helpful, and made the morning very fun for all. 19 fish later, we are heading home with a cooler full and great memories.

This was a great trip. Ive began to take my girls fishing the last couple years of their spring break here in Destin. Captain Judah & Firstmate Jason were two genuine and respectful young men who have an authenic concern that this experience was first rate. The trip started as we went out about 13 miles to bottomfish and were immediately on some good fishing and pretty quickly limited on Trigger fish and released many more. The water was a little rough & rolly & two of the girls got nauscious, so Captain Judah reccommended going in to calmer seas & trolling for Spanish & Cobia. We headed inshore & tgis did the trick as the girls got to nap off their sickness & we began to catch and almost limit on Spanish Macks in the calmer sea. We also got up close to a “big” (to us) ol Mako shark. You can be sure that I will check in with Captain Judah on future trips as this was the best trip so far with a splendid, fun, professional crew. Thx vt
