Looking for epic fishing battles and a family fishing trip with plenty of comfort and style? 850 Charters is waiting to take you out to the Gulf of Mexico’s most exciting nearshore and deep sea fishing spots! Located in Destin, Florida’s fishing capital, this charter boasts a best-in-class spacious and seaworthy vessel that’s capable of whisking you to wherever the fish are biting. Even better, you’ll be joined on your trip by experienced local and tournament-winning captain, Matt Le’Brasseur.

Voted “Destin’s Nicest Hair” 3 years running, with him at the helm, you’ll surely be entertained and set up for a successful fishing trip from the moment you step aboard. Capt. Matt is a Destin-born native and has fished the area for over 30 years. He possesses all the skills and knowledge necessary to give you the best shot at hitting your mark for a successful fishing trip.

You’ll be traveling to the hotspots on board your captain’s 26’ Parker offshore fishing vessel. She’s decked out with ample fish-catching space for up to 5 people, and has all of the latest navigational and safety gear. She’s a true fishing machine that’s built to tackle a variety of waters, including those rougher days, so no matter where you choose to fish, you’ll be treated to a safe and relatively comfortable ride.

Capt. Matt and his crew pride themselves on offering angling adventures that are, above all, family-friendly. Newer anglers and little ones will have the chance to catch anything from nearshore Snapper and Triggerfish species to King Mackerel and maybe even a Mahi Mahi! 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!

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.
