Set Sail With Captains Jack and Debbie Wilhite ... Doing What They Love
Almost everyone you know has a fish story or two to tell. Captains Jack and Debbie Wilhite have more than 20 years worth of them! Both Jack and Debbie are Master Captains and their charter boat is the Summer Hunter. In addition to being Master Captains, the couple are on the Board of Directors for the Orange Beach Fishing Association. Summer-Hunter-Captains.gif

So, how did this 20+ year journey begin? Jack and Debbie met while diving in Destin, Florida. Jack is an advanced dive master and Debbie has advanced open water. The two began dating and decided they would buy a boat together. Debbie giggled as she recalled the day she called Jack and said, "Jack, I think I bought us a boat." Jack replied, "Wait Debbie, you either bought one, or you didn't buy one." But she wanted him to look at the boat, because after all, he was paying half! Turns out Jack did like the boat and they became co-owners of a boat, the Summer Hunter. The boat got the name because, as Jack explained, "We were always hunting summer days to go out on the water."

ACFA Logo.png One of the most fun trips to fish for is shark because of the people. It's the adrenaline rush that really scares you and excites you. All these emotions at the same time because you are looking at this fish that is as big as the back of the boat! When it comes up, everyone is screaming because they are excited, and they are excited because there is a fear factor there, especially if it splashes water with it's tail...the fear factor makes them enjoy it more!" She said, "It's a thrill to catch something that could eat you."

And if you are curious as to what Jack and Debbie do in their spare time...they go fishing.
