Semper Fish Charters II

Semper Fish Charters invites you to team up with Captain Dane Minnick for an unforgettable fishing experience in the world’s luckiest fishing village. Destin is home to some great fishing for both professional anglers and newcomers alike, all the more reason to check it out!

Your boat for the day will be a 23’ Parker center console. Made in 2016, she sports a single 150 HP Yamaha outboard engine. There’s plenty of room here to have 4 guests fishing, and a T-top will come in handy on those hot summer days. She’s got everything you might need, from safety gear to navigation electronics and a livewell for bait storage.

The Semper Fish Charters specialty is leaving the coast in search of the biggest and baddest fish Destin has to offer. Whether it’s a quick trip nearshore to go after Cobia, Kingfish, and Bull Reds, or a longer trip for Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo, and more, they’ve got you covered. This is an adventure for the whole family, so be sure to bring your loved ones along for the ride.

Top of the line Shimano fishing equipment is included in the price of any given trip. Captain Dane will be happy to clean and bag any legal keepers you might want to take home with you. If you want to see why Destin has such a stellar reputation in fishing circles, who better to show you around than Capt. Dane and Semper Fish Charters?

I began fishing with my father off the Outer Banks of North Carolina and became hooked, not with just the fishing but time spent with people that loved it. My passion grew over the years while I lived in the South Carolina Low Country fishing Redfish and Speckled Trout. Decided after the Marine Corps I would try to make a living at it. I'm still grateful for that decision and a tolerable and loving wife. Everyday is a new adventure and no two days are alike. How can you not love that.
