Charter Boat Malia Ann

Known as “the fishing capital of America,” Destin is the place to be for outstanding fishing adventures! Charter Boat Malia Ann exploits these waters to the max, meaning you’re in for a real treat. Captain Zach Wolfe welcomes you aboard to discover Destin’s famous fishery for yourself.

The Malia Ann is a 26’ Mako center console boat that has recently been restored to offer the ultimate fishing experience. Her twin 150 HP Yamaha engines provide a fast and reliable ride to the fish. It can carry up to 6 anglers, and the spacious deck area will provide a comfortable base for your whole group. It truly is a great vessel to explore the open seas.

You’ll troll and bottom fish for a variety of delicious table fish and excellent game species in the Gulf of Mexico. On shorter trips, you’ll go after King Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper, while on offshore trips you can target anything from Mahi Mahi and Cobia to Amberjack and Tuna. If you’d rather fish the inshore areas, Capt. Zach will be happy to guide you along the beautiful coastline.

You’ll catch live bait on the way to the fishing spots, or you can buy it before coming aboard. With rods, reels, and tackle provided, along with a choice of artificial lures, there’s nothing left to do but get booking! At the end of every trip, customers even get to take their catch home with them, cleaned and prepared by the captain – what a treat!

So come and have a great day fishing and make some lifelong memories with Charter Boat Malia Ann!

    This is the trip where you will have shots at giant pelagic fish offshore. Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and White and Blue Marlin! When you hear that reel go off in blue water you're in for the fight of a lifetime. These trips have to be timed with calm seas and good reports.

    This is a great way to spend a full day on the water. You will have more than enough time for both trolling and bottom fishing and you'll be able to get out to those spots that you wouldn't reach on the shorter trips. It doesn't get much better than this!

    Get out there when the big ones are feeding. Many of the Gulf Coast's biggest Sharks are caught after sunset, so this trip gets you to the most productive waters and gets you reeling them in.

Captin Zach Wolfe was born in Ft Walton Beach, just a skip away from Destin. A true native to the area growing up fishing and surfing the piers along the Emerald Coast. He has been charter fishing in Destin since 2009 so the local knowledge of where, when, and how to catch fish comes naturally to him. Fishing is his passion and livelihood, he's also great with kids he enjoys seeing the excitement they get from being on the water and catching fish! Captain Zach takes out charters every day, weather willing, and invites you to come anytime and enjoy the great fishing Destin has to offer!
