About Your Guide

Captain Tyler Allen of Always Tight Fishing Charters has had the pleasure of growing up in Destin Florida and is a local to the Florida Panhandle. Fishing these waters for 25+ years, Captain Tyler comes from a long line of fishermen.

Captain Tyler has grown up fishing the beautiful Gulf Coast, fishing the Cobia migration during the springtime and Flounder gigging and dock light fishing in the summer with great success.

He always had the dream of one day running a charter boat, but decided that he would begin as a deckhand and a mate to get some experience in the charter business. After several years, Captain Tyler gained the experience he felt he needed to successfully launch Always Tight Fishing Charters, where he strives for your group to have the best trip possible!

My dad and I went out with Captain Tyler and first mate Squirrel for a 4-hour AM trip. We could not have asked for a better time. From the moment we got lines in the water we were landing fish. Captain Tyler wasted no time putting us onto some great King Mackerel and Squirrel made sure we always had a line in the water, ready to go. If you’re looking for a great fishing trip with an awesome crew, look no further. My dad and I were fortunate enough to have a great day of fishing with some great new friends. If I can make one recommendation, spring for the 6-hour trip. When they’re biting like this, 4-hours just goes too quick!

Captain Tyler and his faithful mate Squirrel were a dynamic fishing duo. Both men were courteous and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The boat was comfortable and accommodated us perfectly. The fishing was great, Captain Tyler called all the shots and we were getting bites at about every set up. Within 30 minutes of getting on the water it’s easy to tell that fishing isn’t just a job to them but also a passion. Would 10/10 recommend Always Tight to anyone out there. Bring a good attitude, some sunscreen and for the love of God leave the bananas at home, Captain Tyler will take care of the rest.
