Spend the perfect amount of time out on the water on this 6 hour trip with Captain Zach aboard a spacious and luxurious 42 ft sportfish! These 6-hour trips are usually combination trips: Captain Zach will spend some time bottom fishing for red snapper, triggerfish, and other assorted reef fish, and spend the 2nd half of your trip trolling for king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, wahoo, and other assorted pelagic fish...Read More
Captain Zach and his crew strive to make sure that every passenger gets more than enough personal attention and assistance for an enjoyable saltwater fishing experience for the whole family including the kids.
All bait, tackle, ice, license and permits rods and reels. As a general rule, Captain Zach will stop on your way out and catch live bait almost every day, if you decide you do not want to spend the time to catch bait there is a live bait boat that offers fresh live bait (when available) (not included in the base price of trips)
There will be a professional mate working with you on the back deck throughout the day, helping you with knot tying, de-hooking, and icing the fish as they are caught. Once back to the docks your mate will hang your fish for photos, then clean, bag, and ice your fish.
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

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.

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!!
