Captain Adam Peeples is a USCG licensed charter boat captain with many years experience on the water. Growing up as a young boy fishing the “cut” at St. George Island for redfish, the salt water fishing bug bit him at an early age. After growing up fishing various areas for many species of salt water fish, Capt Adam enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent 9 years in the Army as a sniper. This included two deployments to Iraq and a stint as an instructor at the U.S. Army Sniper School, hence the name “One Shot Charters”.
Since leaving the military, Capt Adam has been on the Gulf of Mexico almost constantly searching for the hot bite. His favorite kind of fishing is slow trolling big live baits because “you never know what will bite!”. Capt Adam prides himself on putting together trips that target a variety of species, usually bringing in a well rounded mixed bag for the freezer. His love for being on the water and catching big fish shows on his charters. To Capt Adam, there is nothing better than putting people on the fish!
Captain Mike, an avid outdoorsman, has spent a great deal of his life hunting and fishing. He began offshore fishing in the early 90s off the NC coast, and since then, he has fished the Atlantic and Pacific basins for all major pelagic fish, several species of bottom dwelling fish, and reef fish. Over the years, Cap'n Mike has gained a great deal of experience in salt water angling and has fished the local waters in and around Destin since 2006. Since then, he has caught every species of offshore gamefish species available with the exceptions of the black Marlin and the Short Bill Spearfish. Capt Mike knows how to find the fish!
Captain Kirk Pristas is an avid Outdoorsman and Conservationist who began fishing the Gulf of Mexico since age ten. Captain Kirk is a native Floridian who grew up on the bay in Lynn Haven which enabled him to experience the many opportunities our great area has to offer. Whether it's hunting for Sambar Deer on St. Vincent Island, diving for Spiny and Shovelnose Lobster, Alligator hunting, fishing for Tuna and Marlin out in the Gulf or just floundering in the bay, Capt. Kirk has done it all in the local area. After spending nine years in the Air Force with numerous deployments to the Middle East, Capt. Kirk decided to honorably separate from active duty and return to his native roots. This enabled him to pursue his passion for fishing and the outdoors while being able to show others what unbelievable outdoor experiences our area has to offer. Capt. Kirk enjoys almost every kind of fishing and always strives to provide the best possible trip that will make memories!
