And for those of you out there who think you may be strong and skilled enough to handle the big game, Captain Matt will give you a good shot at trying to wrestle an Amberjack or shark into the boat!

Your captain will make sure you’re decked out with top-quality rods and reels, as well as bait, tackle, and your fishing license. Come aboard 850 Charters for a day full of family, friends, fish, and most importantly, fun!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I am a Destin born native and have fished and lived here for my entire life. Growing up here is an awesome blessing especially for an avid fisherman like myself. When I was younger deep sea fishing trips were a rare and special treat for me so I looked for every opportunity to get out and fish anyway I could. I’ll never forget the excitement and adventure of reeling In my first fish and that is a feeling I strive to bring all my clients big or small. I am by no means the best fisherman around and will never claim to be, but I strive to be the best at showing my clients an experience out on the water they will never forget. Since I never had the privilege of fishing as often as most others in the area I learned not to take any fishing trip for granted, and I treat every trip that steps foot on my boat the same way. I understand the value of these experiences and do everything in my power to make the most out of every fishing trip.
