Hit the waters of Destin, Florida with an experienced, certified charter service. The Soggy Bottom II is a family friendly charter specializing in fishing the inshore waters of Destin, the bay, and nearshore fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico. Destin’s Ultimate Guide Service is owned and operated by Captain JJ Botelho. With years of local experience and a veteran team, you don’t need any prior fishing experience to have a successful day on the water. Young families are more than welcome aboard, there’s life jackets and all USCG required safety equipment on deck. If this isn’t going to be your first rodeo, Capt. JJ and his team will work with you to make sure you’re getting the experience you came for! Captain JJ Botelho and the Soggy Bottom II team offer a wide variety of trips lengths to choose from. You can relax and spend the morning on Destin’s pristine beaches, then hit the water on the 4hr afternoon trip. Maybe you’re the serious angler looking to test your skills in the Emerald Coast? The split trip and full day trips will take you off the coast into the Gulf targeting King Mackerel, Red Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, and more hard fighting species. The Soggy Bottom II is a 22ft Cape Horn center console fishing machine, powered by a 225hp Yamaha engine. She’s licensed and spacious enough to comfortably fish a maximum of six anglers at once. While fishing the backcountry and inshore waters of Destin, The Soggy Bottom II’s power poles will anchor the vessel without alerting the nearby fish. No matter which trip you decide to reserve, you’re in for an exciting day on the water. Captain JJ will let you know which species are in season and where the bite is the hottest. You can let your Captain know what you’re interested in catching and he’ll work with you to make it happen, season dependent. Your trip price for the day includes a fishing license for everyone on board, use of top of the line fishing equipment, lures, live bait, and your catches will be cleaned at the end of the trip. Leave the worries at the dock and get ready for a Destin fishing trip you won’t forget! Many great memories await you, book today!

Fantastic Trip
I don't often give a 5 star review, but this was one of those times. We called last minute and got a night fishing spot. Wow! Captain Bobby was fantastic. Took us to a spot and with 5 minutes we were pulling in keepers. My son had a blast and caught a huge trout within an hour. The smile on his face makes it worth every penny. Captain Bobby took great care of us the whole night. He even cleaned the fish and bagged them with ice. As someone from the Midwest who does not know much about fishing the ocean. Captain Bobby helped make it so much fun. Before you knew it the trip was over. If you are looking for a private fishing trip go with these guys. You will not be disappointed. I asked a lot of stupid questions, broke line, and lost bait. I would turn around and Capt. Bobby had another pole, shrimp and answer. I got to fish while he would help my son. It was really a great time. I cannot wait to come again!

Wonderful Captain
Cpt. Bobby was such a wonderful guy and once we got out on the water we spotted a group reds. He was an amazing help and made the trip enjoyable for all of us. Reached our limit with amber jack and reds and the trip was action packed!
