faith. family. fishing.
Welcome to the family
Moving to Destin in 1956 with his family, Captain Jimmy couldn't imagine living anywhere else. As a young boy he became fascinated with fishing and spent all of his time on the docks. It became more than just fishing, but his way of life. Now, with more than 50 years of experience, Captain Jimmy still enjoys sharing his passion! If your looking for original, you'll be sure to find it with Captain Jimmy Miles.
This 2nd generation Captain fell in love with deep sea fishing at the young age of 11. Tying knots, cutting bait and cleaning boats for deckhands. She landed her first deckhand job at 16 years old and has been working these waters ever since. Sharing her way of life is more than just taking people fishing, Captain Brandy believes that every time her boat leaves the slip it keeps the heart of "the World's Luckiest Fishing Village " alive!
"There's no better way to feel close to GOD"
First Mate Jake
"All the rivers in the world run to the same place; and there is where you'll find me!" - Jake
Jake is an Indiana native with wonderful parents; Scott and Melinda; He never could let go of the sunshine and tight-lines that Florida has to offer! After faithfully putting his time in the Army, he realized fishing was his happy place! Thankful for his path, he gives all the credit to the Lord! 4yrs into his career he joined the team here at Emerald Coast Charters and we are blessed to have him!

"This was my kids' first ocean fishing experience, and it did not disappoint. This boat/crew is excellent with kids. We all caught a ton of fish and learned to do things the right way. I Could not give a higher recommendation! Thanks for an awesome day on the water!"
Our family had an incredible experience on the 5th day Mother’s Day weekend! Captain Brandy made sure that we trolled areas that were full of fish and the deckhand was fast and efficient! We loved that the boat was the perfect size for our family and we made some wonderful memories. I highly recommend 5th Day!
-The Messer Family
My husband recently passed and his wishes were to be in the Gulf of Mexico. We could not be more grateful to have chose this boat and crew. The boat was spacious and clean. The crew was very professional and caring. Captain Brandy allowed us to take our time so we had a very peaceful, private ceremony. She also took us to find dolphins which was the perfect closure for our family.
