Destin Charter Fishing Bounty Hunter & Captain Mark Walker is ready to show you a great time on the high seas…
The winter is nearly over and it’s almost March! People are busy making their plans for Destin charter fishing this year. The phone is ringing with lots of people asking questions and booking their spring and summer fishing trips on the Bounty Hunter.
Destin charter fishing has lots of great plans for this year and we have a couple of good mates on board.
We run so many trips during the season that we wanted to have extra personal on board to work the deck. The guys will be alternating trips so that everyone will be fresh and ready to help our clients every time the boat leaves the dock with a new group of excited customers. Destin charter fishing Captain Mark will be the only one driving the boat though so he will be the constant in our operation.
Ben Cogman started working on the Bounty Hunter way back in 2007 when he was 14. He’s been fishing with us now for 7 years when he was not in school. He wanted to learn how to be a mate so he started by cleaning the boat after the trips. From there he started going out on the trips and has learned the techniques of Destin charter fishing from Captain Mark. We are happy to have been back this season.
Jason Klosterman has joined our team too and will be working hand in hand with Ben. Jason grew up in Destin and is from a family of Destin charter fishing fishermen. His dad still drives one of the Marler boats. Jason’s a very hard worker and understands that this is a “life style” not just a job. He knows how to tie tackle, rebuild rods and reels and most importantly he knows how to fish! He also has his captain’s license which is always a plus!
Our goal is to give you the best destin charter fishing experience that you’ve ever had from bait fishing to landing your fish. The mates will be there to give you the instruction and technique to enable you to have the time of your life and the awesome accomplishment of bringing your fish on board. Then, at the cutting board they can even talk to you about how to cook that fish you just caught!
The Bounty Hunter has been at Fisherman’s Boatyard over in Freeport since January 7th getting a complete overhaul. The entire hull was sanded down this year and is nearly ready for the fresh paint to be sprayed. Every day after working at the boatyard Captain Mark and Jason have been working on the rods and reels. Captain Mark has the rods and is putting on new eyes, rewrapping and painting them. Jason has been rebuilding the reels to get them in perfect working condition for this season. They are looking forward getting the boat back in the water and getting back to Destin charter fishing!
We are ready when you are to book your destin charter fishing trip on the Destin charter boat Bounty Hunter. Please give us a call just as soon as you can so we can book your day of destin charter fishing on the Gulf of Mexico!

Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter Tonight is the Annual Destin Boat Parade.
The year is coming to an end for the destin charter boat and the Christmas season is in full swing. It’s the time of year for people to spend time with their family and friends and be thankful for their blessings. Captain Mark’s son is coming for a couple of weeks and they are planning to have a great visit.
Destin Charter Boat We’ve also got 5 grandsons that will be fun to spend time with. It’s never a dull moment when all the boys are around!
We want to wish everyone out there a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Tonight is the annual Destin charter boat parade. For those that don’t live on the coast this parade is quite a change of pace for people used to seeing parades only on the street. There is a great atmosphere and spirit of Christmas with lots of Christmas music and decorations on the water as well as all around it. The boats really go all out with their decorations and lights so we get to see a blaze of color on the water tonight. Our 2012 fishing season was a good one.
One of the many highlights was winning the Destin Fishing Rodeo’s Red Grouper division. Our good friend and customer, Mike Kitchens, caught the 15.8 lb. fish on October 6th. It held through the whole rodeo and came in first place. There were lots of great times all season on the Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter and we are looking forward to 2013 being even better that 2012. We have so many repeat customers that we enjoy having with us year after year. It’s especially fun to watch their kids growing up. These kids remember what they’re taught too, sometimes even better than the adults! We’ve already got people booking for the 2013 season and we are excited about the good things and times to come.
We have packed up the destin charter boat already and are taking the rest of the year off. Part of the reason is to spend time with our family and the other is the fact that there are very few fish that we can legally catch right now. This time of the year we specialize in short trips when we would normally go out and try for some triggerfish and white snapper. The white snapper are still open but not the triggerfish that are a favorite of lots of people. They will be open starting Jan 1st. Once they open and we finish with dry dock we’ll be up and ready for charters.
The first of the year we will be taking the destin charter boat over to Freeport for our annual dry dock. This year is hull inspection with the Coast Guard and we are confident that all will go well with that. Basically we do the same thing every year at dry dock whether or not we have inspection. This involves checking the integrity of the fiberglass to make sure there are no bubbles or delamination as well as tuning up the props and repainting the boat.
We at the Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Be sure to book your trips for 2013 early to be sure you get the day you want. Give us a call anytime! 850-650-1534
Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter official summer season for 2012 has come to an end
What a great season it has been overall and it’s still not over for Destin charter boat Bounty Hunter. We’ve got quite a few trips on the books for September, October and even have one trip scheduled around Thanksgiving in November!
Destin charter boat bounty hunter was very lucky to escape most of hurricane Issac.
When the storm first started coming this way all the computer modules had it coming directly at us but as time went by the storm did what it usually does and headed to New Orleans. We still took precautions for high winds and seas just in case it changed direction at the last minute but we never had to move the boat from the slip. Captain Mark of the Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter and Bruce Cheves stayed close by just in case and since they are experts they had it tied up perfectly.
Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter Fall fishing can be fun and exciting especially after a hurricane. We are hoping that the storm pushed in some grouper toward us. We can catch gags until Nov. 1st so that’s plenty of time to get some of these great tasting fish. There are lots of small sharks around ever since the storm blew in. We caught 5 the other day but let them all go. We don’t usually keep them but everyone loves the excitement of catching them. They get their picture taken with them and let the little guys go.
So what else can we look for out in the Gulf of Mexico this fall season on the Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter? There should be some tuna out on the edge and who knows, some may even come in close. When we have long trips we look for the shrimp boats culling their catch and can almost always find tuna around them. We can also try some deep water trolling and hopefully hook up a wahoo and maybe some kings. Amberjacks are in season again so those are a possibility too. Bonitas are here as strong as they have been all season. They may not be so good to eat but they are lots of fun to catch. We hear that people are smoking them and they make a great dip! Smoked king mackerel makes a great dip and easy to do too!
School is back in session and now is the season that the adults, old and young come fishing in Destin on the Destin Charter Boat Bounty Hunter. The weather is cooler, the crowds are gone and it’s a peaceful time here. There is no traffic to contend with plus the rates have all gone down in the hotels, condos and motels. That is why we are offering our fall and winter special so you can bring 8 people for the same price as we charge for 6. So get your family and friends together and put together a trip this fall season. Lets go out on the Destin Charter Boat Bounty hunter and see what we can find to bring home for dinner!
