Captain Adam Peeples is a USCG licensed charter boat captain with many years of experience on the water. Growing up as a young boy fishing the “cut” at St. George Island for redfish, the saltwater fishing bug bit him at an early age. After growing up fishing various areas for many species of saltwater 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 is a full-time guide and fisherman. This is not a hobby for him, but an obsession. He is the guy who is out fishing even on his days off. Although swordfishing is his favorite type of fishing, he is well a well-rounded captain and is just as happy to go play with the snapper and king mackerel as he is to spend a day swordfishing. One of Adam’s favorite things to do is take his two daughters fishing, and he thoroughly enjoys introducing the world of saltwater fishing to kids.
Some of Capt Adam’s professional accomplishments include Sportfishing Magazine’s Charter Captain of the Year for 2016 and 2017, awarded “Best charter of the Emerald Coast 2017” by Emerald Coast Magazine, finished first place fishing with team “Wide Open” in the 2017 Boshamps Swordfish Shootout, 3rd place Catch and Release swordfish division fishing with team “Ellie B” during the 2017 MGCBC, 2nd place fishing with team “Kelly Ann” in the 2016 Boshamps Swordfish Shootout, and a couple of other local tournament wins.
If you want to fish with someone who loves what they do, Adam is your guy.
