MAXIMUS

214 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

Destin’s premier fishing charter. The only boat in the harbor to offer a NO FISH, NO PAY GUARANTEE.  Why do we offer this? Because with nearly 300 charters a year we have never not produced fish, its our personal guarantee to make sure you catch fish and have fun doing it. Maximus can go faster than virtually all other boats in the Destin fleet. We can get you out to deep water in half the time or less, than most other boats to make sure you catch all the fish you can dream of. Maximus goes farther than any boat on a 4 or 5 hr. trip. You and your family having a day of great catching is far more important than fuel cost.

Maximum Fishing Fun aims to provide unforgettable deep sea fishing experiences, by a group of experienced captains. For these Captains Justin and Rob, fishing is more than a job - it is their passion. Dubbed the ‘offshore battle wagon’  the Worldcat 330E charter boat is powered by twin 300HP Suzuki engines, with enough room on board and a restroom gives you plenty of freedom and comfort.

Each trip aboard Maximus starts out with some action-packed bait fishing. Fishing for baitfish is usually done first with rod and reels, catching 4-6 baits at a time using sabiki rigs. In about 45 minutes, between 75 and 100 baitfish are usually hooked, which is often more than enough. Being as fast-paced and eventful as it is, catching baitfish is a great start of any Destin fishing adventure. (Kids love this and often don’t want to leave). Once live bait is secured and joined with 50-75 cut baits that the crew has already prepared for the day, it’s on to the main course. The premium offshore grounds surrounding Destin are packed with Red Snappers, Amberjacks, Groupers and many other exciting species, depending on the season.

See all the reviews they explain it best! There is a reason why Maximus has more than quadruple plus the reviews and then some, than all other boats.

We had an awesome full day fishing with Captain Justin. It was a lil rough out there but Justin took us right to the best spots and we caught a lot of fish. Would definitely recommend booking a trip and we would would definitely book with Captain Justin again.
