Background
I grew up in Biloxi, MS and have been fishing since I was in diapers. I started with bream fishing with a cane pole and graduated to deep sea fishing. After catching my first Gulf fish I was hooked. I just can't go back to fishing for smaller fish. My bait is bigger than a bream. LOL
Techniques
I really love to bottom fish. We use cigar minnows and also squid. During amberjack season we can do butterfly jigging or free lines to catch the big boys.

This was our first time aboard the Ruthless but by no means first time on the water. We booked our annual guys trip with Capt Elaine. She and First Mate Mark kept the hooks baited and put us on the fish. (Their lively banter kept us entertained between spots!) We caught white and mingo snapper, a scamp, and triggerfish. Had to let the triggers go as they were out of season. But the catch of the day was an 8.5 lbs red snapper! Great trip! Highly recommend them!

I am so glad you guys had a good time!  The weather cooperated and was cool and the seas were almost flat….a great day!  That pink pole is a killer when it comes to the “bite”.  You happened to be the lucky user who caught the first and the biggest fish of the day!  My deckhand Mark is always a joy to have on board.  Wish he could be with me all season….then I wouldn’t get small gifts in the mail from him…LOL.  Hope you guys come back and visit again.  Take care and let me know if you win an Emmy from your filming.

We were very empressed with our experience with Capt Elaine. She took the time to call us several weeks ahead of time and ask us what type of fishing we wanted to do. She was very professional and took the time to find out what we expected out of our fishing trip. Our trip was fabulous and we had a great time. Capt Elaine took us to great fishing spots and we enjoyed seeing all the fish jumping. We also had the opportunity to see some Dolphines, which came up to our boat. I would highly recommend a fishing trip with Capt Elaine on Ruthless. We are looking forward to coming back next year and catching some more fish on Ruthless. Thank you Capt Elaine for our great memories.

Looking forward to fishing with you again!!!

I’ve been fishing with Captain Rogers for 6 years and I don’t plan on ever looking for a new charter as long as she’s around. Captain Rogers is very knowledgeable in every aspect of the sport, from knowing what’s in season, legal sizes, specie limit , catching method and rotating fishing spots to minimize the possibility of not catching anything (which is always a possibility) . Every trip I’ve had with her has been a good trip, some better than others but Captain Rogers always makes it a great experience!

I had a great time taking you and your family out to fish.  Fishing is always a challenge when the weather sets in and the seas are rough.  Bottom fishing is always my favorite but trolling can be exciting when the fish are running.  Hope you enjoyed the snapper fillets.  Call me next time you are going to be in town and hopefully the weather and the Gulf will cooperate.  Take care and have a safe trip home.

Taking you all out was a real pleasure.  I just hate it when I go to spots and the fish are not there.  I don’t care how far I have to motor to find fish but it was a good ride since the water was flat!  You guys picked the best day to go out.  I have never seen the water so flat!! Too bad Olivia was sick.  I hate to see people sick on my boat!
  I hope you enjoy the fish recipe as well as the pie.  The pie is my favorite and I was told to not make it again because it is sooooo good!!!

The captain made sure that we were going to get all the fish we could, she was very concerned about our safety and comfort. The weather was on the edge of 1to 2 ft seas, we went out to the break.water to check the condition first. The decision was a good one as we caught our limit and could have kept a lot more fish but had to release due to not in the season, bBut got some great pictures . Would highly recommend captain Elaine, and we will be back!!

Everywhere Elaine took us we caught fish.
She was a great guide and very patient with my son and myself.
One spot we would get our catch close to the boat and dolphins would steal it.
My son and I were so busy catching fish together at the same time we didn’t get as many pictures as I planned.
I wasn’t able to join my son on the half day but he had a great time catching fish by himself.
Thanks again Elaine for a great time and we plan on fishing with you again in the spring.

I am so glad you had a really good time.  Those darn dolphin can really get greedy stealing our fish.  They should go out and catch their own fish instead of waiting for us to get them on the hook!  LOL.  Wish you could have gone out the second day with us.  We missed you.

Hope to see you again really soon!

Take care,
Capt. Elaine

My family and I have never fished saltwater. Despite rough water conditions, Capt. Rogers was still able to provide us with a great experience. For some reason, my 12 year old son caught more fish than the rest of us, reeling them in fast as he could, often two at a time! I’d love to go again when we could keep the triggerfish and red snapper we had to release.

I had a great time taking you all out.  Too bad the Gulf was a little rough.  Trigger is supposed to start January 1st.  There are so many out there but we can only keep 2 per person!  Red Snappers are usually around June 1st.  I can hardly wait for the new season to begin!!  Looking forward to taking you out again!

Captain Elaine is very knowledgeable and very hard working. She will even help fish on occasion and is pretty personable! It did take us a while to find some good holes but when we did it was like rapid fire. We even experienced a large shark eating my brothers huge red grouper he was in the middle of catching (#damnshark, #saddayatsea,#Pictureattached). We will definitely be bringing our family back to see Captain Elaine!

Captain Elaine was the best. Put us on fish, made sure we caught plenty of fish. Worked hard to make sure we had a great time. I will highly recommend and will use Ruthless for every trip from now on.

Has a great trip .The weather was perfect in the 80’s and the seas were fine. We caught one of the biggest red snapper I’ve ever seen,however due to the boat being a federal license,we were not able to keep.we did catch fish though and had a great time
Capt Elaine put us on fish like she said she would

I really enjoyed the trip.  I am so sorry about the Federal license.  I have that license so I can fish beyond the 9 miles mark.  I am kind of stuck with not being able to keep the red snapper in state waters for the additional days given.  Nothing would have pleased me more than to have you take that beauty home with you in the form of filets!!!!  Unfortunately, we are bound by the laws and, although some people can keep red snapper September and October (weekends only), the Federal boats cannot.  Seems a darm shame.  So sad.  Someone had a nice couple of giant filets.It hurt so much to give that fish away when you were a paying customer.  Come back during snapper season (hopefully June 1) and you will be impressed with the fishing and you will be able to keep your fish!!!

Thanks to Captain Rogers for a great day on the water. All of the family had a wonderful time definitely will go out again on Ruthless. The Captain is very knowledgeable and loves to fish!. We caught several nice fish and had a blast. Thanks again Captain Rogers.

Great day spent with my sons. Weather and sea were very cooperative. Did not get my grouper or Mahi Mahi
but caught several Red Snapper (out of season so had to turn them back). Did catch our limits of a mix of
other types so it was a great day spent with my sons. What better way can one spend than on a great boat, a dedicated Captain who wants everyone to catch fish and have a good time???

We had a good time fishing on Ruthless. Captain Elaine worked hard to find fish at several spots. We caught several but had to release most as they were not in season. We were able to keep a grouper which was the target catch. We were also given a tour of some points of interest, pulled up next to some dolfin, and cruised by Crab Island. Captain Elaine was also very informative on places to check out while on our vacation. All in all we had a good time out on the water.

See you soon.

We had a blast fishing with Captain Elaine! She was very accommodating, knowledgable and personable. I took three sons. Two of them caught fish, the other got sea sick but Elaine was so kind and helpful and had him feeling better in no time. The water was a little rocky, but she was determined to keep us on fish and even stayed out longer to ensure we were successful. At the end of our trip, she filleted our fish and told us where to go to have it cooked on the spot. Delicious! Overall, I’d rate our trip a 10, even with the minor bumps..and I accredit it to our excellent guide! We will recommend her to everyone traveling to Destin and plan to return for more fishing on our next trip.

Captain Elaine was very personable and knowledgeable. We were fishing more for sport than meat. We caught 6 species of fish. She really worked hard for us even extended the trip a little at no charge. I would definitely book ruthless again.

My 12 year old daughter and I went out on a morning trip on July 9,2015. The weather was perfect, and the seas were calm. Captain Elaine Rogers took us to a few spots, and we caught nice fish at all. She knows what she’s doing. Very professional. I would highly recommend.

Elaine was awesome.  She took us right to the fish and coached us through the proper techniques/etc.  Brought back 5 good size snapper (including an 11.5 and 8.5 pounder).  I would recommend her to anyone wanting a great time.  We were lucky and had wonderful weather as well.  Only thing I would change is to have caught some grouper.  Tried that for about 45 minutes with no luck.

We had an absolute great time with Elaine.  When my husband found out about Elaine’s Bed, Breakfast and Boat, I was very hesitant to ‘rent-a-room’ from anyone. I had never done it before.  My husband convinced me to take the adventure.  The only reason I believe I agreed as a woman was because she is a woman.
We booked a holiday weekend with her, 2 nights & deep sea fishing trip.  After talking with her over the phone several times, I felt like I knew her already and decided to book a night before our original trip and bring our two daughters. 
She is just an amazing host.  Made us feel like we were at home the minute we arrived.  He place is great.  On the right side of the house is the two bedrooms and a bath that we stayed in.  We had available to us her living room, dining room kitchen, outdoor patio, jacuzzi and tiki bar.  Her back yard is just beautiful and feel like your on a tropical island just sitting on her screened in porch.  Wouldn’t know there were neighbors.  Elaine had breakfast and coffee each morning.  We enjoyed 2 of the many movies she has on hand and we enjoyed every minute of sitting and talking with her.
Her boat is clean and fast.  The day we went out was just beautiful.  Seas were a little rough but we had a great time.  She took us to some great fishing holes and caught our limit on Red Snapper.  My husband also reeled in about a 7ft. shark which made for an exciting trip.  After we got in from the fishing trip, Elaine cleaned our fish and we went back to her place where she cooked us a fantastic dinner.  Blackened the fish (art to that and taught my husband her technique), and homemade mac & cheese. 
Elaine is like family to us now and we can’t wait to visit her again.

Don’t look any further, you’ve found the best.
On this particular trip there were four of us. We all came down from Atlanta, Georgia.  We had never been with captain Elaine. First, the weather seem sad and sea were rough and everyone were starting to look down but let me tell you this captain never gave up and ended up putting all four of us on some craziest catches. At one point we literally had more rods with fish then the head count on the boat…..so when you looking for a charter in Destin,  make sure you book Ruthless Charter ask for Elaine, she knows her water, she has great equipment. 

Captain Elaine knew where the fish are, and how to get them in the boat… A great day and unforgettable experience.

THANK YOU ELAINE! YOU ROCK!!!

Let me start by saying that Capt. Elaine Rogers is the best out there. This trip was a blast and I was exhausted from fighting all the fishes that she put us on. When we left Destin, we could barely lift up the cooler because it was so heavy with all the fishes in it. I would definitely go back on this charter again.
