Maxamillian

Meet the “twin brother” of the famous Maximus charter – Maxamillian! Following the footsteps of the original successful charter, the crew decided to offer another 33’ WorldCat boat. This meant that even more, amazing fishing trips will be available year round. As always, everything starts in Destin.

Maxamillian is captained by Capt. Chris Fulford, which was chosen for a good reason – he’s been fishing his whole life in Destin, he knows the best fishing spots, and he’s great with kids. Whether you are a group of hard-core fisherman or a family of novices, Capt. Chris knows how to adjust the trip for each guest. He’s very efficient and you’ll have fish on your line before you know it.

There are several options when it comes to choosing your fishing grounds; you can go nearshore, visit the flats and reefs, or take a full day offshore trip. It all depends on what you want to catch and how skilled you are. Stay closer to the shore and you’re most likely to target Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper, or Cobia. Dare to go a bit further and Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, or Shark may bite your bait.

Your fishing license, rods, and reels are fully covered. You’re always welcome to bring your drinks and snacks.

Maxamillian and Maximus have each other’s back – if one is booked, always check if the other one is available. Their reputation precedes them and you won’t be disappointed after a trip with them.

    The 8 hr trip is always a great choice. This trip is geared more toward the die-hard anglers or someone who wants a very memorable offshore fishing trip in Destin. You'll go farther out, and the farther you go the better the fishing gets. When you go fishing where others don't fish, there is less pressure and the bite is always better. This can be hard-core fisherman charter and also a full day of family fun its really a mix on this. Plenty of families book this trip to get the most out of the day.

    The 6 Hour Trip is the most popular one, as you get the most bang for your buck. This trip is similar to a 5-hour trip, but you get 1 extra hour to put some more fish in the boat. This also gives you time to hit a few more spots. Each time you get to a new spot, the fishing is hot once again as soon as you start.

    Morning trips, in general, produce more and bigger fish. You still catch plenty of fish in the afternoon but the larger fish do tend to feed more in the AM. If you don't mind the 5:00 a.m. alarm going off – this is the trip for you.

    Afternoon trips start at 1:00 and end at 5:30 This is a good choice for kids when you feel it will be hard to get them out of bed for the 6 a.m. charter. This is also still a great choice when the mornings are already booked. Destin is quite unique as in the fishing is still very good in the afternoon whereas other places slow down after 12:00 dramatically.

I grew up fishing with my dad that ran charters. I grew up in the Destin area and have fished these waters all of my life. I love fishing, it's why I have chosen it for a career.
