Fish Heads Destin can accommodate individuals and groups for offshore trips ranging from simple Red Snapper trips to overnight trips. Join captains who are knowledgeable in navigating the blue waters off the coast of Destin. Captain Todd and Captain Branson will be your hosts for the day. Born and raised mostly on the waters of South Louisiana, they have been fishing their entire lives. Now, they bring this expertise to Destin, FL.

All fishing equipment and drinking water are included in the price. Keep in mind that fuel is charged extra.

Why choose Fish Heads over any other V-hull boat? Combining the oversized cockpit with the largest fuel capacity ever, the Freeman 42LR is quickly becoming the “go-to” long-range fishing platform! The ability to comfortably cruise at 45 knots on average opens the playbook on untapped fisheries. Whether it is tournaments, fun fishing, or a day with the family, the Freeman 42LR provides class-leading performance that will leave the competition scratching their heads. There is an understood “No Mercy“ rule on the ocean. The only thing better than winning… is winning by a lot! You’ll get there faster which gives you more time for fishing!

Target Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Swordfish, Snapper, Wahoo, Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish, Grouper, and many more. The opportunities seem to be endless in this area. Try out different kinds of fishing techniques and see which one is your favorite.

Fish Heads Destin has award-winning captains who will work hard to put you on the fish. Rest assured that this will be a day to remember.
