Velocious’ inaugural fishing season has been a huge success in Destin, Florida. Velocious is Pelican Adventures‘ newest fishing boat, replacing Blessed Adventure for private deep sea fishing charters on the Destin, Harbor.
Velocious is a a 38′ Fountain Tournament Edition center console. The 38TE is capable of top speeds up to 70+ mph with triple outboards. Available for private fishing trips for up to 6 people starting at 6 hour up to 18.
Besides Velocious being a beautiful clean boat, she’s as fast as she is pretty and gets you out on the fish with great speed to spend less time traveling and more time on the bite! The further the trip, the bigger the fish…and the Swordfish bite has been as hot as the temperatures in Destin this year. Velocious released several smaller swords this season and were delighted to bring back several to crowds on the dock at Pelican Adventures.
Targeting Swordfish, you will need to book a 10 hour trip; usually equates to roughly 4 or 5 hours of run time (2 running out and 2 return) and 5 or 6 hours at the fishing grounds. Book your deep sea fishing charter with Pelican Adventures on Velocious! If we do not catch a Swordfish in that allotted time we will add up to 3 hours at the fishing grounds and that’s a 50% increase in actual fishing time ($630 value) at no extra cost to you.
Swordfish are often labeled the “biggest, baddest and meanest fish of the sea”! Swordfishing takes patience and determination and once you catch one, your adrenaline rush is the best reward!
We fish for Swordfish in anywhere from 1200′ to over 2000′ deep water. We have landed some swordfish in less than thirty minutes. Others we had to battled for extended hours to land. Either way, when you get that bite, then that line tight, and finally see that awesome sword extrude from the sea… Well there’s no other adrenaline rush that comes close.
Not only are Swordfish an exhilarating fight and once in a lifetime experience, they are delicious and make the best Gulf-to-Table dinner. Click here for a favorite recipe from our crew at Pelican Adventures for delicious Lemon Garlic Swordfish.
