Taylor Waterfield

Member since March 2015 Destin, United States
Background
I was born in Destin, Florida. A place that was centered around saltwater charter fishing. Some call Destin the worlds luckiest fishing village. I’ve been fishing this area since I was old enough to walk and I have always had a passion for this industry. I love teaching young people and beginners the ins and outs of fishing. Seeing them excited about the thing I’m so passionate about is what I love.
Techniques
We Normally specialize in traditional bottom fishing. We use live and dead bait to present a natural presentation and produce steady bites and hookups through out the day. We also do live bait trolling and artificial trolling for mackerel and Tuna species, and offer shark fishing as well. We like to see our customers rod bent all day. We may change our approach depending on what’s in season and if the guest are after table fare, catch and release, or looking to land that one big trophy fish in a day.
