Out-Cast Fishing Charters LLC specializes in back bay inshore fishing but can take you out onto the Gulf of Mexico if mother nature allows. If you’ve seen the legendary TV fishing show “Bill Dance Outdoors,” you probably know about Captain Josh Nelson, the owner of this charter. He’s Destin born and raised and has been fishing in the area his whole life.

Capt. Josh welcomes everyone aboard his charter, regardless of their fishing experience. Even if you’ve never held a rod in your hand, you’ll have a great time. Your captain will show you the basics and be ready to jump in any time you need his assistance.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 22’ Cape Horn. This bay boat is perfect for inshore trips, thanks to its shallow draft, and can move quickly as it is powered by a 250 HP Honda engine. With a maximum speed of 40 knots, you know that you’ll spend most of your time fishing, not traveling.

Depending on what you want to catch, you’ll use different techniques, such as spinning, trolling, or bottom fishing. Your targets for the day will be Red Snapper, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, and Black Drum, to name a few. You can keep your catch when it’s in season, and the captain will clean and fillet it for you.

Capt. Josh will provide your fishing equipment and cover your fishing license. You just need to bring drinks and snacks for the day, sunscreen, sunglasses, and whatever else will make your day more enjoyable.

Let Out-Cast Fishing Charters LLC make this fishing trip the one you’ll talk about forever – book a trip of a lifetime!

"Being born and raised here in Destin Florida, I have been fishing my whole life. I have been doing it for a living since 2002. My family also has a few other captains in the business and we communicate to make our customers have the best possible experience." Captain Josh loves taking families out fishing. His favorite part is to see kids smiling while fishing, and he loves to see kids and amateurs catch their first fish.
