Destin FL, United States

Rocked Up Charters are located in Niceville, Florida, just a short drive from Destin. They offer deep sea fishing trips, and specialize in catching big fish on light tackle, choosing to use the most modern Shimano light tackle available.

Their 28’ Contender centre console with T-Top is powered by twin 150HP Yamaha engines, and is equipped with Garmin GPS, Furuno fishfinder, Icom VHF radio, and radar. It can accommodate up to 4 people, and features an onboard toilet, fresh water, CD player with bluetooth, and large bean-bag chairs for the ultimate comfort while you’re heading across the water. The boat is also equipped with outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, livewell and built in icebox. 

Rocked Up Charters offer deep sea trips that range from 4 to 12 hours, which will have you bottom fishing for Grouper, Amberjack, Red Snapper and Triggerfish; sight fishing for Cobia and Tarpon (seasonal); and trolling for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, King Mackerel, and Bonita. If you prefer, they can also take you Shark fishing.

All dead bait, tackle, licenses and ice are provided, so all you need to do is bring your favourite drinks and food. At the end of your trip, the Rocked Up crew are happy to clean your catch for you.

Whether you are a beginner, or an experienced angler, Rocked Up Charters cater for everyone.

I grew up fishing in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. As a small child, I would go out with my Dad who was a commercial fisherman. “The warm, emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico slip into the deep, cobalt blue waters. This often occurs within a very close proximity to shore. Year round fishing is excellent!” I have been seen on the TV under "Gary Finch Outdoors" where we hit the big Amberjacks. Please visit his website for more information. We specialize in catching big fish with light tackle. Come take my boat out for a visit with the big ones!
