Captain Mark Walker

It’s been a cold winter but it looks like spring is finally here. Coast Guard inspection is finished, the tackle is tied, the boat painted and organized with a great full crew ready to take you, your friends or family on a great Destin Florida Cobia fishing trip. Spring break in Destin is in full swing and families are here doing some early spring fishing on the Destin charter boat Bounty Hunter.

Destin Florida Cobia





The spring season is a big time for Destin fishing boats and there are plenty of Destin Florida Cobia fish to catch. Spring brings the migratory fish that includes cobia, bonita, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. White snapper, triggerfish, and amberjack are also on the list of fish that you may catch on the Destin fishing boat Bounty Hunter and a few cobia have already been caught so soon there will be plenty passing through our waters.

If you’re out enjoying the beach you may notice lots of boats with a guy in the tower cruising slowly close in and parallel to the beach. They’re looking for destin florida cobia! Cobias are a large “sight” fish that pass through here each year. It’s much easier to spot them if the seas are calm and the sun is bright. They like to be under or near any structure like a floating pallet or even a turtle. When our mate sees one from the tower he’ll grab a fly rod and “throw” on the fish. He tries to cast in front of the fish and hopefully the fish will take a great big bite. They swim fairly close to the surface and they aren’t real smart. We’ve had them swim right up to the side of the boat where the mate grabbed his gaff and put the fish in the boat with no hooks involved. If you get lucky and catch one you’ll be having destin florida cobia for dinner and you’ll love it! They are great eating and can be cooked all kinds of ways. The end of this week is looking pretty darn good with not much wind and much calmer seas so we’re hoping to hook up some.

We’ve worked really hard all winter getting the destin fishing charter boat Bounty Hunter ready for the upcoming season.

In addition to dry docking the boat Captain Mark Walker and his mate Steve Hotvet have done a lot of remodeling to the inside of the boat from replacing the floors, ceilings, building new rod holders for the salon and doing a general sprucing up of the inside.

This winter we’ve also been doing a lot of social networking.  We’ve been busy setting up accounts and pages on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. We want to take advantage of all the opportunities out there to connect with our past customers and connect with some new ones as well.  Check out those Destin Fishing Bounty Hunter sites and add us to your friends/follow lists.





Just a few more days and all the winter boat work on the Destin fishing boat Bounty Hunter will be done. There is still one more Coast Guard inspection to go but once they are done with all of that they will be able to focus on getting our clients some of the best destin fishing.

February 26th will be the first fishing trip of the new year and it will be great to get back on the water and do some Destin fishing.

We are running an 8-hour trip so hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can put some fish in the box.
There is some really good news to share about the 2014 charter destin fishing season. Usually they make us wait until the last minute but this year’s red snapper season has already been set! It will begin June 1st thru July 10th.

They are also allowing all the groupers, except gag, to be caught this spring as long as you are not in water deeper than 20 fathoms  (which is 120 feet). Most of the grouper are in water deeper than that but just the same if you get lucky and catch a grouper in shallow water at least you’ll be able to keep your fish.

Well we are very excited and anxious to see everyone again this year on board the charter boat Bounty Hunter.

We’ve got quite a few trips booked already and we’re getting calls every day. Now that the red snapper season has been set it’s important to make your reservation for one of those 40 days! Everyone wants to be able to catch some red snapper, the signature fish of Destin.
