Captain Dusty is fortunate enough to find a few weekends a year to take time off from fishing to fish himself. These days “off” are spent either scouting the Pensacola area, or some other random coastal town. Some of these Coastal fishing destinations include Orange Beach Alabama, Perdido Key, Gulf Breeze, Destin, Panama City, Port St Joe and Navarre Florida.
