About Us

Captain Eddie Dykes has been a Destin Florida charter fishing guide since 1969. His history began as First Mate for his Grandfather on the original Shamrock in 1967. In 1969, his Dad took the helm and Eddie was his 1st mate until 1974, when he then became captain of the Shamrock. They purchased the Shamrock II in 1976 and Eddie became her captain in 1980 and has been her captain ever since. With all that experience behind him, Captain Eddie has the knowledge to put you onto the fish, so you can have a highly productive day.


We have a very courteous and experienced first mate who is very good with children.

The Shamrock II is 47 ft. long and powered by twin diesel engines. She's certified by the United States Coast Guard for up to seventeen passengers, so we can accommodate your friends and family.

Your time on the Shamrock II can be spent bottom fishing for Red and Black Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Cobia (ling), Scamp, and Amber Jack, or trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Bonita, Blackfin Tuna, Jack Crevelle and Bluefish.

When you charter the Shamrock II, you'll be in good hands on a fine ship - and you'll be enjoying yourself from the moment you first come on board.
