Join us and be part of the on going fishing heritage of Destin!!! Obviously, 68 years is a long time and we feel blessed to be a part of this...... year after year!!! We also love October, the weather cools off and the fishing is excellent!!! The fishing rodeo is an anglers tournament- which means YOU and your family & friends will be competing against other anglers for the biggest fish!!! There are also daily awards and kids that weigh any fish in will get a free rod and reel!!!! All angler aboard the "Only Way" are automatically entered into the tournament- no extra charge.  There are many other reasons to visit Destin, FL in October and late fall- for instance- you don't have to sit in traffic for an hour to get 2 miles down the road... also.. you don't have to wait two hours to get a table at some of our great and popular seafood restaurants.  So please come fishing with us in this 68th annual Destin Fishing Rodeo and see if you can reel in a rodeo winning fish!!!  Call us for availability and I will personally book your trip.

Swordfish bite is on!!!

We had a great overnight trip, the weather was great and the seas were calm!  Our night started off a little slow for the first couple hours so we decided to make a short move to another area. When we put our first line down at the new area it didn't take long to get the bite!!  The swordfish ate the bait and swam up to the boat before we knew she had eaten and we were able to hook her up right behind the boat!!  Unfortunately, we ended up pulling the hook on a that fish.  We set up on a new drift after that and ended up getting hooked up around 2 am!! After more than 2 hours we landed our big sword and she went absolutely crazy when we pulled her in the boat!!!  It was a great trip,  we ended up 1 for 2 on swordfish, 9 dolphin, wahoo, and a hand full of tile fish. 

180-200lb Swordfish!!!
