Background
I started fishing here in Destin around the age of 5. I began on the Okaloosa Island Pier and my passion for fishing grew from there. I eventually started going out on boats and seen the opportunities that was away from land. My first job on a charter boat was actually as a cook at the age of 15. I was allowed to fish if the customers weren't ordering food lol. I eventually became a mate on one of the boats in the harbor. I left fishing for awhile and went out to the oilfield were I ended up getting my captain's license. After several years I decided to come back to what I love. I was hired on as a 1st mate with a great captain. Then opportunity presented itself and I now have my on fishing vessel to make memories with some great people.
Techniques
Trolling, Deep Sea, Shark Fishing, Bait Fishing and Bottom Fishing

We were a party of 10—- 4 adults with 6 kids aged 9-16yrs. old. I asked to book less than a day in advance and we were booked to go out on the Miss Aegina for a 4 hour morning trip. Randy and the crew were so helpful, attentive, and accommodating!!! They began the trip with basic safety and explanation of equipment and we were off on our way. We caught our own live bait and that in itself was a lot of fun! The two smaller children and myself really got into it and began challenging the group of 4 teenage boys to see who caught the most quickly. We then went further out to sea to begin catching the real fish. As with any fishing trip, much of the experience is left to chance, but our crew tried several different techniques to increase our chances and that’s when the teenagers started hauling them in! We caught King Mackeral, Spanish Mackeral and a few others I can’t remember the name of. Although we had only booked a 4 hour excursion, our Captain extended the trip until each and every child caught a big fish!!! I can’t tell you how much this trip meant and how much fun we had - I couldn’t imagine it being any better! We truly made some lasting memories and I will forever be thankful to Randy and the crew of the Miss Aegina for making it happen!!!
