Launch for an afternoon of fish slaying aboard a 26' Mako with Captain Zach! Capt. Zach has lived in Destin his whole life and has been fishing these waters year-round since he was a kid!...Read More
Destin is known for its crazy close proximity to deep water, and where there deep water, there's giant fish! So for these afternoon trips, Capt. Zach likes rev his twin 150HP Yamaha's strapped to the back of the Malia Ann and quickly rip it out to the deep water. Once he's got you out there he likes to chill out, cruise around, and troll to attract the big fish Destin FL is known for. You never know what monsters will crawl up from the depths to whack your line at these depths, but don't be surprised if you hook into some Spanish or King Mackerel, Wahoo, Mahi, and/or much more!
On the day of your trip, you will meet up with Capt. Zach at the East Pass Marina where the Malia Ann sleeps, but don't worry, this 26' beauty is always loaded with all the gear you could possibly need, ready and rearing to take you out on the water for an epic saltwater adventure!
Thus, all you need to bring is your lunch, snacks, drinks, and sun protection, and Capt. Zach and his vessel will take care of the rest!
Captain Zach was born just outside of Destin in Fort Walton Beach. He grew up fishing and surfing the piers along the Emerald Coast. If you're looking for a true local to guide you into the Florida Panhandle waters, you can't go wrong with Captain Zach!...Read More
Zach has developed expert knowledge of prime fishing spots and productive techniques through running a Destin charter service since 2009. He is a passionate fisherman who loves showing new anglers how to have fun on the water, and he's great with kids too! Only bad weather will keep Captain Zach off of the water, so go ahead and book your trip today!
Capt Zach and Capt Phillip had to cancel due to weather conditions, which was understandable. My son and I were bummed as we had anticipated this trip all week. Capt Zach went above the call of duty and was able to work it out where we could go the following ...Read More morning for our 6 hr trip. Awesome, as he did not have to go through all the trouble. My son and I had a great time, Phillip put us on the fish in no time. Highly recommend this crew and will be back for sure. If you are looking for a good charter, this is the one. Hats off guys, thanks for making memories for us!
I took my 12 year old son, 7 year old daughter, sister, mom, and spouse, and we had an outstanding time fishing the 3 hour kids trip. The Captain was very knowledgeable and personable and was great with the kids. Not only was the boat ride fun, but ...Read More we caught over 20 Spanish Mackeral in 3 hours. This is a must do for family fun, fishing experts and novices. My 7 year old caught as many as her older brother. This experience was fantastic and not nearly as expensive as other private charters I researched. May go again this week!
I can’t recommend the Malia Ann and Captain Eric and Firstmate/Captain Kyle enough! From catching our own baitfish, to absolutely slaying King Mackerel, the entire experience was first class! It doesn’t get any better then having two guys who were born and raised in the area and on the water. ...Read More If your ever in the destin area there is no one else you should book your trip with! We come down once a year from Ohio and I’ll fish with no one else moving forward! Thanks again guys!!
First time Gulf fishing trip for my 10 year old son and he absolutely loved it! Even with rough seas Captain Zach made the experience worth every penny! He wasted no time putting us on the fish! We will definitely be back to go fishing with Captain ...Read More Zach!
