850 Charters—Capt. Jared

850 Charters is the highest rated guide service in Destin for a reason, Captains Matt and Jared go above and beyond every day to make the most out of every fishing trip whether in the gulf or bay.

Depending on time of year, tide, and the latest bite intelligence, you might hook into Speckled Trout, Snapper, Redfish, Bluefish, Little Tuni, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Ladyfish, King Mackerel or Jack species.

On the day of your trip, you’re likely to bayfish around bridges, grass-flats and docks, or bottom fish using different techniques on nearshore trips.

On trips of 4 hours or longer you may catch in season fish to take home or have cooked at a local restaraunt, so long as regulations allow. Plus, fish cleaning and freezer bags are included in the price, so no worry, stress free experience!

You’ll be dropping lines from a 26’ Parker center console with room for 6 passengers. This boat comes rigged with a trolling motor that will hold you firmly over the spot so your captain can spend all his time tending to your group rather than behind the helm constantly maneuvering the boat. Top of the line rods, reels, tackle, and state of the art electronics are all equipped on this fishing machine.

There’s no need to buy a fishing license, so all you have to do is show up ready for a good time! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. Your captain will help you follow regulations while you fish.

We also offer child-specific charters, so bring ‘em aboard and get the kids hooked while they’re young! Coast Gaurd spec Type-1 Child-sized life vests are included, Although we do allow you to bring your own puddle jumper or personal vest that your kids may be more comfortable in and used to.

A few items you’ll want to bring include bottled water, sunblock (non-spray), sunglasses, and snacks.

850 Charters will make your investment well worth the time and we look forward to making lasting memories and smiles with you out on the water!

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.
