Crystal Beach Charters – Double Down

You’ve heard the legend of Destin, now it’s time to find out if it’s true. Double Down is here to show you the “Luckiest Fishing Village in the World.” Head up to 9 miles offshore in search of some tough-fighting and delicious fish that will make you the envy of anglers everywhere.

Captain Tim Baxter has fished these waters for over 15 years, working his way up to running his own charter. With such a wealth of experience, he’s learned exactly what makes a great fishing trip and promises a fun trip aboard as he seeks to grow his business. An avid angler himself, he’s determined to get you on the fish and reeling in some monsters.

Head off aboard his 36’ Twin Vee center console. Spacious and versatile, there’s plenty of space for up to 6 guests to fish at the same time as you head out to some of the nation’s most productive waters. There’s a toilet on board for your comfort, just make sure to bring plenty of snacks and drinks aboard to make the most of your time on the water.

Make use of the outriggers as you troll the open waters out into the Gulf. Head to the reefs, and you’ll have the chance to bottom fish with live bait to lure your prey. Using the latest Shimano and Penn gear, you’ll have the edge over the beautiful fish you’re going for. But you’ll still have to work hard to hook a Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, Amberjack, Wahoo, or Shark aboard.

The onboard first mate will give you a helping hand throughout the day, so you’re on your way to making that prized catch of a lifetime! He’ll even clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day for you to take back to shore for a tasty treat. Bring the whole family aboard and make the most of these productive waters. Double Down invites you to take the plunge for a thrilling day’s fishing.
