Known as “the fishing capital of America,” Destin is the place to be for outstanding fishing adventures! Charter Boat Malia Ann exploits these waters to the max, meaning you’re in for a real treat. Your Captain welcomes you aboard to discover Destin’s famous fishery for yourself.

The Malia Ann is a 26’ Mako center console boat that has recently been restored to offer the ultimate fishing experience. Her twin 150 HP Yamaha engines provide a fast and reliable ride to the fish. It can carry up to 6 anglers, and the spacious deck area will provide a comfortable base for your whole group. It truly is a great vessel to explore the open seas.

You’ll troll and bottom fish for a variety of delicious table fish and excellent game species in the Gulf of Mexico. On shorter trips, you’ll go after King Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper, while on offshore trips you can target anything from Mahi Mahi and Cobia to Amberjack and Tuna. If you’d rather fish the inshore areas, we will be happy to guide you along the beautiful coastline.

You’ll catch live bait on the way to the fishing spots, or you can buy it before coming aboard. With rods, reels, and tackle provided, along with a choice of artificial lures, there’s nothing left to do but get booking! At the end of every trip, customers even get to take their catch home with them, cleaned and prepared by the captain – what a treat!

So come and have a great day fishing and make some lifelong memories with Charter Boat Malia Ann!

The water is warming up and so is the fishing. Spring always gets the blood flowing with the arrival of a few of my favorites making there way back to the gulf coast. Cobia, pompano, king and spanish mackeral. All of them can be challanging but will definitely put a smile on your face!Trigger fish are in season also.One of the best eating the Gulf of Mexico has to offer in my opinion. Dont wait book your trip today!
