Member since June 2014 Okaloosa Island, United States
Background
I've been fishing the local waters with my father since I was old enough to hold a rod and reel. I am a full time charter boat captain and the owner/operator of Scallywag Charters. We strive to make every trip memorable and will always go the extra mile to ensure your fishing charter is great because we want to be a part of your vacations to Destin, FL.
Techniques
We do mainly inshore bay fishing and kid friendly fishing charters. Our goal is to have a great time while on the water and to try to bring something home for dinner. We try to accommodate your goals as much as possible and match the fish to the angler the best we can.
