A week ago some of my best friends and co-workers and I had the opportunity to charter a trip out of Fort Walton Beach, FL after we finished our rod building class in Mobile, AL. Being as we flew in through Pensacola the trip to Fort Walton Beach wasn’t too far and it is such a beautiful trip. Well this trip was booked with Capt. Gabrielle Mercado, she runs a charter there for wreck and inshore fishing both. Well the 4 of us were set to put our friend Jesus Pena on a couple of AJ’s and Capt. Gabby did a great job of doing this on the first stop. Needless to say we had a great trip and the Capt. put us on plenty of numbers and species, I think we caught AJ’s, Grouper, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Bull Shark, Bonita and a few other species. Was an excellent 5 hour trip and this captain worked for the money, kept us fishing and catching. But most of all she put up with our shenanigans that accompany our trips after not seeing each other for a few months.
Should you be in the Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island Areas and are looking for a guide be sure to look up this captain.
