The 30’ Contender is known for its perfect ‘fisherman’s’ layout. It’s designed for comfortable cruising while you and your crew enjoy offshore fishing in the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Boat

The Contender is equipped with professional-level Simrad navigational equipment and powerful Twin 2016 Yamaha 200 outboards. The boat also has a 30 gallon live bait well to hold larger bait. Large, fresh live bait means the ability to entice a larger catch. The boats’ twin fish boxes are able to hold anything you and up to 5 of your friends can catch!

Our Captain

Our boat is captained by Captain Josh James. Captain James was raised in Valdez, Alaska and grew up fishing Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska for Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod and all 5 species of salmon. Alaska turned Captain James into a life-long fisherman. He landed his first trophy size Lingcod and Yellow Eye Rockfish at the age of 9.

As he grew older, he had the urge to come south to chase his dreams as captain of a sportfishing charter. As soon as he turned 18, he packed his bags and began the drive from Anchorage to Destin. He finally found paradise.

He began working on several of the best fishing charters in Destin as the First Mate. After a few years gaining experience and learning the waters of the Gulf and the Bay, he decided it was time to buy his own boat and start captaining his own charters.

Captain James believes Destin, FL has some of the best fishing in the U.S. The fishing here is awesome for anglers of any skill set. He enjoys captaining trips for novices all the way up to the experienced angler.

First Mate

Captain James is joined by his Deckhand and First Mate, Justin Toth. Justin has been fishing his entire life. His experienced also began in Alaska, where he grew up fishing for salmon, trout, and halibut.

Justin is an avid outdoorsman, fisherman, and hunter. He has chosen to expand his experiences here in Florida by going into fishing with best friend and Capt. Josh James. One of Justin’s biggest passions is helping others catch fish that they can only dream of. With his expertise and knowledge any day on the water will be unforgettable.
