Background
Captain Blake Nelson grew up in Destin, FL, and has been fishing the Choctawhatchee Bay and Gulf Coast his whole life. He and his brother began fishing in professional Redfish tournaments after college as a hobby and eventually, it became a career. He’s placed first in the IFA Redfish Tour and has won several other inshore fishing awards as well. In 2017, he became the world champion of the Destin Cobia Tournament after landing a 98.5 lb Cobia, the biggest one caught in 10 years. He decided to start his own charter service in 2008 because he loves meeting new people and sharing his passion with others. He’s made a lot of friends on the water and is looking forward to taking you on the adventure of a lifetime. Depending on the boat you book your captains may also be Capt. Justin DeMass and Capt. Tanner Howell, both equally experienced and longtime members of the team. Book your trip today and get ready to create lasting memories with Last Cast Charters!
Techniques
Captain Blake mainly focuses on light tackle bay fishing. He prefers using spinning reels with live bait to target Redfish and Speckled Trout.
