Destin fishing charter Captain Adam Peeples

Captain Adam Peeples

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.

Captain Kirk Pristas

Captain Kirk Pristas is an avid Outdoorsman and Conservationist who began fishing the Gulf of Mexico at 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!
