Captain
Bernie Lefebvre

Member since January 2017 Destin, United States
Background
Captain Bernie Lefebvre is a native of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, brought to the area via his father's military assignment. The opportunity to grow up on the waters of the Emerald Coast allowed Bernie to gain both knowledge and experience. His passion for fishing began when he was a young boy, when he went fishing with his Dad and friends. In 1984, Bernie worked with a friend and his father for a Destin charter boat business. While in college, Bernie worked as a deckhand and dreamed about starting his own company, which he did after 15 years of working in the Information Technology field. Captain Bernie has taken part in various fishing tournaments, where he became a big fan of offshore trolling. For Bernie, the greatest thing about fishing is the excitement and fun it can provide to people of all ages!
Techniques
The vessel I operate is U.S. Coast Guard inspected that allows multiple passengers beyond the standard 6 person passenger charter boat. I prefer to be non-conventional on the side of light tackle to enhance the sport of fishing experience. You never can catch them all, but it's more gratifying when challenged. We do all types of Gulf of Mexico fishing, bottom fishing for reef fish over natural and artificial bottom, or trolling for Pelagic (migratory) fish. I fish according to daily situations in weather and opportunity to catch all available species.
