Charter Boat Sea Fix

Based out of the “Fishing Capital of the World,” Charter Boat Sea Fix offers unbeatable fishing charters into the heart of the Gulf of Mexico. With trips ranging from 4 hours to 3 days, you can get a taste of fishing these waters, or immerse yourself in extreme offshore angling. With decades of experience between them, Capt. Ronnie Youmans and deckhand Aaron Smith will provide for a safe and exciting trip, however long you stay on board.

You’ll travel to sea aboard a luxury 45’ Number One offshore sportfishing boat. Restored in 2016, it has enough space for 6 guests plus the crew to fish, relax, and sleep on board. On longer trips, the crew can cook, or feel free to use the kitchen at your leisure. You’ll be carried by twin Cummins 55 HP engines, getting you up to speeds of 22 knots. With all the necessary navigational and safety equipment, rest assured you’ll be safe and comfortable as you head to the sweet spots with the wind in your hair.

The Gulf of Mexico is home to some of the world’s best and most diverse fishing. Nearshore fishing will see you hit the reefs and wrecks to target exciting and delicious species, such as Groupers, Snappers, Kingfish, and many more. While heading offshore will get you big game fishing for Tunas, Swordfish, and even Marlin. Try your hand at trolling, spinning, jigging, bottom fishing, and even kite fishing – just let Aaron know in advance so he can prepare!

With brand new Shimano and Penn reels, you’re in the best position possible to get loads of fish on the boat. Aaron will clean and prepare each fish you catch to take home with you too! You’re in for the trip of a lifetime with Charter Boat Sea Fix. Head out on the waters and make the most of it today. Come aboard and see for yourself why Destin is known as the “Fishing Capital of the World.”

Member since December 2015
Having grown up on the Chesapeake Bay, deckhand Aaron Smith has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. At the age of 14, he moved to Destin and his passion simply kept on growing, as he fished off his Dad's charter boat. He became a USCG-licenced captain in 1996, and now works alongside experienced Capt. Ronnie Youmans to provide guests with top-notch angling adventures – they make a great team! "If you love what you do, you can't call it work," says Aaron, and he claims to be in that very fortunate position. An avid angler himself, he was part of a crew which caught a 650 lb Mako Shark, as well as an 800 lb Bluefin Tuna. He may not catch those every day, but alongside Capt. Ronnie, he's certainly ready to help you reel in the biggest of them all.
