About Your Trip

Get out there with Captain Payton for an exciting fishing adventure on the waters off Destin, FL! Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn some basics or a more experienced angler looking for a new trophy, Captain Payton is an expert at catering your trip to your goals to ensure that you’ll have a day to remember.

On this trip, you'll go after a wide variety of inshore and nearshore species, from Triggerfish, Grouper and
Snapper to Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, and more. You'll chase the bottomfish off the reefs and structure, and troll further out for the speedier open-water species. These fish are not only a blast to catch, they're delicious on the grill too!

Captain Payton runs a 27' World Cat center console on this trip. She's a fishing machine, and her twin 225-HP Yamaha four-stroke engines pack a serious punch. Regardless of whether you're chasing Snapper in deep water, fishing reefs, or trolling for pelagic predators, this boat has got you covered.

Your rods, reels, bait, tackle, licenses and fishing equipment are fully covered by the captain. You only need to pack your snacks, drinks, and sun protection. The captain will also clean and fillet your catch free of charge at the end of the day.

Great four hour fishing expedition with Captain Herbie! He definitely put us on the right spots, was always quick to assist us, and best of all - we had a great time!!! Just the keepers were 21 vermillion snappers, 3 red snappers, and 1 black snapper. And the stories of the “ones that got away” will continue to be retold and grow over time…. ;)

Captain Mag was great, very knowledgeable and we felt like we had a friend with us instead of a captain. We felt really comfortable with him and caught a lot of fish and when we go again we will only go with him on his boat. Highly, highly recommended.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
