About Your Trip

Join Captain Matthew on an action-packed outdoor adventure in Destin, Florida!

On this trip, Captain Matthew will take you offshore into federal waters for an epic day of targeting red snapper.

For these trips, Captain Matthew uses a 42 ft Buddy Davis sportfishing boat. It has ample space for your group (6 anglers max) to have a five-star fishing experience. The boat cruises a hair under 30 knots thanks to her Twin Cummins QSM-11 engines
which kick out well over a combined 1,200 HP.

The list of features aboard this beauty can be fairly summed up as “everything.” Inside, you will find a full head (restroom), galley (lounge), and cabins with bunk beds, all blissfully air-conditioned. Up on deck, you have outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, live wells, a fighting chair, and all the rods, reels, and tackle you’ll need to have a productive day on the water.

Captain Matthew will provide all bait and fishing licenses as well. Bring food and drinks for the day as well as a cooler to take home your day’s catch.

Get ready for a monster day on the water with Captain Matthew!

Captain Matt and his deckhand, Steve were very competent and professional. We had 8 lines out trolling for most of the 14 hour day. Steve even continued on with a good laceration on his hand from the first wahoo we caught. We landed two wahoos and didn’t get many more bites even though they had us constantly trolling with many lines in the water. Matt is a good fisherman and I’ve been out with many

Well, all I can say is... the captain and first mate seemed to be good people. We eventually caught a limit of barely keeper red snapper, which is cool until you walk down the dock and see folks with red snapper twice as long, several, as well as other keeper fish. Then when you get to the pay window.... the lady wants to haggle with you over 80 bucks. I

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 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!

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!
