Operating out of Niceville/Destin with a short 15 minutes ride to of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, Captain Wayne Alexander is eager to share his experience with other passionate anglers.
Captain Wayne has been fishing in this area since 2003 and would love for you and up 3 others to join him aboard his 26’ NauticStar center console. “Just Add Water” is perfect for both near shore and offshore fishing and comes powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, freshwater shower, full head, 2 bait tanks, and an ice-box. There’s no minimum age requirement, so bringing your little ones is encouraged!
When offshore fishing, you will be focusing on Grouper, Triggerfish, and Red Snapper, along with several other Snapper species at wrecks and reefs. You could also do some trolling for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, and possibly Blackfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi.
Top-notch Quantum, Shimano and Penn fishing gear and bait will be covered. Live bait can be caught or purchased outside the pass before heading out to the fishing grounds. You can keep your catch, but please keep in mind most saltwater fish have size limits, bag limits, and seasons to keep them. All of the rules and regulations are there to preserve the future of fishing. Captain Wayne will clean and bag your catch back at the dock.
Captain Wayne is also a trained chef and can advise you on how to prepare your fish, or it can be prepared at L J Schooners Restaurant at the marina for only $9.95 per person (prices subject to change.)
This trip is for young kids and novice fishermen. We would stay in the bay area fishing on grass flats, docks, and possibly wrecks in the middle of the bay.
