Captain
Destin Bayer

Member since March 2017 Marathon, United States
Background
Captain Destin Bayer was born and raised in the Keys and was raised like Bud and Sandy from Flipper. He grew up fishing, spearfishing, diving, and lobstering, before going on to do each one commercially. An experienced hand at all of these techniques, he's fished plenty of tournaments and has even developed his own styles. The Capt. Destin special would have to be his style of bully-netting Lobsters at night with lights from the boat, so that you can see more than you would usually. During daytime, his most prized catch was a 1,100 lb Tiger Shark.
Techniques
I absolutely love to live bait, kite fish, deep drop and chase spraying sails and mahis on the reefs.
