Nick Tate, Captain at Strictly Business Fishing Charters

Captain Nick, originally from Rome, Georgia, brings a wealth of passion and expertise to Strictly Business Fishing Charters in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. His journey began in the electrical field, where he honed his skills through a rigorous apprenticeship program and eventually ascended to roles in electrical construction management. However, his heart was always drawn to the Emerald Coast, a place he cherished since his youth. Driven by his deep-seated love for the sea, Captain Nick made a pivotal decision to pursue his lifelong dream.


He obtained his Captain's license, acquired a boat, and embarked on a new chapter dedicated to sharing his passion for fishing with others. Today, Captain Nick proudly operates under a USCG license, ensuring a safe and memorable experience for you and your family. With permits and licenses in hand, he offers both inshore and offshore fishing excursions using top-of-the-line vessels: a 2004 Cape Horn 22 Bay boat and a 2008 Cape Horn 31 Tournament equipped with twin Yamaha engines.

We did the two hour kid fishing trip with captain Russ and highly recommend it. Our two kids are almost 6 and just turned 8. We all had a blast! Captain Russ was knowledgeable, great with the kids, and funny! We asked the kids what their favorite part was and they both said ‘CAPT RUSS!!’ What I particularly loved is that Capt Russ gave them instruction and help, but also had the patience to let them try to do things on their own. This was our kids first time fishing off of a boat and they had such a great experience that they are hooked 😉 Whenever we get the pleasure to return to this area, Strictly Business is our choice for fishing!

10/10 recommend giving Capt. Nick a call! I’ve been taking groups down to fish with him since he started charters and he’s consistently putting us on fish!! Great captain and always a great time!!

Capt Nick was great. Best charter Captain we’ve ever been out with!

July 23, 2024

First of all, great communication! Nic was on top of it helping us book and answering questions. Day before communication, and on time ready to go day of. We were looking to feed our bellies and take fish home, and Nic delivered. Unfortunately for us red snapper was not in season cuz we would’ve needed to buy another cooler if we were able to keep that! We had an absolute blast (two adults, two teenage boys, who have been on multiple fishing charters)! Y’all he wore us out! This was definitely the best fishing charter we’ve been on, and we’re already thinking about making a trip just back for snapper season! You might even save yourself from the dolphin cruise cuz those suckers will find you in the wild. 100% recommend Nic and strictly business!!

Nick is a great guy who knows the spots and will go above and beyond to put you on fish and fish you until you’re done! He has a great attitude and keeps his boat extremely clean and has great rods and reels. We will be booking again!

Had another great trip with Captain Nick Tate and Strictly Business Charters!! These are great memories my family and I are making on our annual family reunion to Destin! Nick always gets us on the fish no matter the conditions and makes sure we have a lot of laughs while constantly working his tail off!! Also, filleting the fish and bagging them up so we can take them to the beach house for a fresh grilled fish dinner has become a tradition that everyone looks forward too!! See ya next year sir and many thanks!!
