Captain Robby Captain Josh
Capt Robby Van Sittert was without a doubt born with a passion for fishing. He started fishing when he was just 2 years old & hasn't stopped . He grew up fishing at his grandpas lake in Jackson, MS; where he also learned to fly fish at the young age of 8 years old. He spent every summer fishing from sunrise to sunset. Before he could drive, he would peddle his bike to the nearest marina or river to fish. Once he began driving, he would spend every spare hour fishing anywhere he could. Over the course of 20+ years of fishing, he has definitely honed in on what his favorite type of fishing- fishing for speckled trout with lures. To him, lures present much more of a challenge than live bait. Robby has always enjoyed helping others learn how to fish & is glad he is fortunate enough to be able to turn his passion into a career.
Capt Josh Calhoon has been fishing in and around Destin since he was a 6 years old (bribing his older sister for rides to the pier) & has been charter fishing for the past 14 years. Josh has fished anywhere from the back bays of the Destin/Ft Walton area to the offshore oil rigs. During Josh's 20+ years of fishing he has had the opportunity to fish with some of Destin's finest captains, & has developed the reputation of being a well respected fisherman & is great with kids of all ages. Throughout all his travels, he has found that his favorite type of fishing is inshore fishing for redfish, specifically spot casting for them in the shallow waters. As a father & husband Josh also understands the importance of family & loves helping other dads (& moms) teach their children how to fish. On his days off he can be found fishing with his wife & 4 year old daughter.
Capt Justin lives, eats & breathes fishing especially when it comes to hunting down cobias & tarpons & he doesn't remember a time where fishing wasn't in his life. He was raised in Mississippi but grew up coming to the Destin area to fish whether it was on a friends boat or at the Okaloosa Island Pier. In his teenage years, he would drive here from Mississippi just to fish for a few hours and turn around and drive right back home. Capt Justin permanently moved to Destin when he turned 20 years old & has been chartering fishing for the last 8 years. Capt Justin also has a young son that loves to fish so he understands the importance of bringing the whole family on board to share in the exciting adventure.
