trip description for Destin 8 Hour Private Fishing Charter in Destin

More than the casual angler, but can't dedicate to a full-day on the water? Sounds like you need an 8 Hour Private Fishing Charter. A very popular trip, this option allows you to spend some quality time offshore chasing down some highly sought-after premier species, without breaking the bank or dedicating an entire day. (This is the most popular trip among work groups and event outings). You will start by trolling your way to your first fishing spot and during your return to shore (and in between, when time allows), but your main focus will be bottom-fishing. On our 8 Hour Fishing Trip, you can expect to be targeting a large variety of species, based on season and availability. For your trolling pleasures, we will be hunting excellent top-water fish like King Mackerel, Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Bonita. Once we start dropping our lines, you can expect species like Vermillion Snapper (Mingo Snapper), White Snapper, Black Snapper, and Porgys. Additionally, this is an excellent option during Red Snapper/Grouper season, and you want the challenge of hooking and landing these delicious beasts. This is the Gulf of Mexico......you never know what surprises might be lurking. Thank you for your interest in this booking, please let us know if you have any questions. Lets go fishing! Notes: A 3% Payment Proccessing fee will apply for all online, credit card, or digital wallet transactions and will be assessed and collected at the dock. No fees apply for payments made with cash/business check. Please remember- deckhands humbly work hard for and graciously accept tips. Customary gratuity is 20% of trip price and can be accepted before or after your trip. Thank you for your generosity! Read More

trip description for Destin 12 Hour Private Fishing Charter in Destin

This is our highest-tier, year-round offering for serious anglers with something to prove....... and (perhaps a hefty seafood appetite). First on the agenda is some trolling action. You will troll off-and-on throughout the day: first on the way to your first fishing spot, on your way back to Destin, and also on longer runs in between spots. We also sometimes switch to (or stay with) primarily trolling efforts if you catch your limit of your primary target-fish or if the trolling action just happens to be on fire, but the #1 objective overall is quality bottom fish for your whole group. On the 12 hour fishing trip, you can expect to be targeting a large variety of species, based on season and availability. On the trolling lines, we will be tempting the most highly desired top-water fish like King Mackerel, Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Bonita, and more. When we arrive at the bottom-fishing spots, we will be hunting down any and all premium species that are in season- probably one or more of the many types of Grouper or the elite Red Snapper. You will likely also bring in some of the following: Vermillion Snapper (locally known as Mingo Snapper), White Snapper, Black Snapper, and Porgys. And on this trip, there's plenty of time to run across some pretty incredible catches. Thank you for your interest in this booking, please let us know if you have any questions. Lets go fishing!

    Disappointing! They did not get one bite the whole time. I was hoping for a small refund of some kind. The boys had looked forward to this and to not see a shark or get a bite really let them down. Would love to try again next year.
