Destin's Ultimate Guide Service

Member since March 2015 Destin, United States
Background
Destin's Ultimate Guide Service is a local company in Destin, Florida. It is operated by Captain JJ Botelho and Captain Adam Schroeder, who are both experts in fishing the local waters. Nothing makes their day more than taking others fishing, especially the kids, and watching their excitement when the bite happens and the fight is on!
Techniques
I enjoy fishing in almost every way possible! My favorite ways to fish are sight fishing, fly lining live baits, and believe it or not... spear fishing!
