Launch aboard Captain Taylor's 40' infinty for a first-class Gulf Coast fishing experience out of Destin FL. With years of experience fishing the waters off the coast of Destin, Captain Taylor will put all of his knowledge toward getting you on the fish safely and in style!...Read More
After you meet up with Captain Taylor at the East Pass Marina, he'll crank up the engines, you will motor out a couple of miles offshore to do some trolling, deep-sea dropping, and fish catching! For single-day trips you can expect to hook into the likes of Wahoo, King Mackerel, Snapper, Sharks, Jack Crevelle, Mahi Mahi, Bonita, Amber Jack, Cobia and potentially Tarpon (when they're around in the summer months) just to name a few, and there are plenty more species the Gulf can offer up! You are welcome to get as involved as you would like with your adventure as well, whether you'd rather lounge until the reel starts screaming or if you want your hand on the rod the whole time, Captain Taylor can make it happen!
Beyond superior service and luxurious amenities, Captain Taylor also provides all the best rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. Thus, all you need to bring are your favorite lunch, snacks, and drinks, your sun protection, maybe a towel, and your camera! Otherwise, Captain Taylor will take care of the rest to make the most of your Destin saltwater adventure!
A Destin native, Captain Taylor has been on the water as far back as he can remember, and he started his career at only 13 years old. He describes fishing as his passion and has always known it’s what he wanted to spend his life doing. His favorite part of what he does is seeing kids catch fish, especially when it’s their first time!...Read More
Taylor’s favorite fishing destination is Isla Mujeres, Mexico, where he spent a winter sail fishing. Blue Marlin are his favorite species of fish to catch but it’s a toss-up between yellowfin tuna and fresh scamp for his favorite to eat.
Taylor is full of fishing stories, but one of his favorites is from a slow day fishing with his buddies. Just as they were about to call the day, they found a string of black turtles and then moved from turtle to turtle, catching cobia after cobia until they were forced to stop because they ran out of bait and jigs!

Capt. Chip was our guide for the morning and it was a stunning day. Seas laid down a bit so we ran a few miles out to the reef. Caught a nice Jack and a Red Snapper. Put em back, so they’re still there for you. A few small grouper ...Read More too. Then headed along beach to troll for Mackerel. Had to reel them in fast because the dolphins kept stealing them once hooked. I’ve been on several charters and can say Chip was the friendliest of the bunch. Was great with the kids and pleasant to provide guidance and local knowledge. Will be back again for Tarpon soon. 👍😀☀️🎣🐟

Had a great time. Conner was very helpful and attentive to everyone onboard. We had three kids with us (plus 3 adults) so the space onboard was ok, but had it been all adults it would have been tight. Wouldn’t hesitate to use or recommend Destin Backcountry ...Read More Fishing again.

Our captain took us various places to try our hand at fishing. The gulf waters were too rough for the day, so the bay is where we stayed and might have been disappointed. On the contrary though, he agreed for our elderly aunt to join the trip and the memories ...Read More we made that day will live on for a lifetime in our family. We had an awesome time. It’s not always about how much you catch but about what you catch! Thank you Conner we had a blessed day on the water that day. We will remember this trip and tell stories forever!

We spent a great afternoon fishing. The weather was great. We caught a big variety of fish but not many of any of them. You just never know where the fish are going to be but it was great fun. Thank you Captain Conner for being so accommodating to us.
