Come and discover why Destin, FL, is known as the “Luckiest Fishing Village in the World” with Karma Charters LLC. Head offshore to the wrecks and deep waters of the Gulf and battle it out with some of the nation’s biggest, most prized fish. You’re sure to fill the boat and have plenty of fun while doing it!

Captain Rocky Griffith always knew he wanted to fish for a living. By now, he’s been fishing professionally in Destin since 1984. He loves nothing more than sharing his passion with new customers and hopes to get beginners and children hooked on fishing.

Head out aboard a spacious 29’ Stamas saltwater fishing boat. Up to 6 guests are welcome on board, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time when bottom fishing. Make yourselves at home in the comfortable cabin that boasts plenty of seating, a bed, and full head toilet. Bring your own drinks and snacks and make the most of your time aboard.

She’s also fully-equipped for all your needs. The captain will fill up the livewell, as the trolling lines will do their job from the downriggers and outriggers. When you’ve found the fishing grounds, Capt. Rocky will turn on the wireless trolling motor, as he gives you a helping hand. Settle into the fighting chair and have the edge over the beast on the end of your line!

Whether you’re fishing the wrecks or the depths, you’re in for a treat. Use light or heavy tackle and work yourself hard to fill the boat. Go after stunning and delicious Snappers, Groupers, Mackerel, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi, and you may even attract the bite of a Shark!

Everything you need for a productive day is waiting for you on board, and your captain will even clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day. All he asks of you is that you turn up 15 minutes before the start with an idea of what you’d like to catch, and away you go! Step aboard Karma Charters and engage in some of the world’s best fishing!
