Destin FL, United States

Mighty Fine Charters are an exciting new addition to the Destin harbor. Owned by mother of two Lindley Staples Ward, this charter boat is the result of generations of family fishing and the desire to provide fun, affordable, family fishing trips. As the daughter of Capt. Harold Staples of the charter boat Al-Lin, Lindley is no stranger to the world of charter fishing. The boat is operated by Captain Rodney Souza.

The Mighty Fine is a 50ft. custom Glenn Young Sport Fisherman that is Coast Guard certified to carry up to 17 passengers per trip. The vessel comes equipped with a range of marine technology for both navigation and locating fish. There is plenty of room in the air-conditioned cabin as well as out on the spacious fishing deck. Other amenities on board include a microwave oven and an electric grill. The Mighty Fine is outfitted with a clean bathroom, comfortable seating both inside and outside, and bunks down below for anyone needing to take a rest. Ice, tackle, licenses, and dead bait are all included in the price.
Your trip will start by stocking up on live bait by stopping near the shore on the way out to the fishing grounds. Using live bait is preferred by most charter boats out of Destin and tends to add to the overall fishing experience. Plus, it gives you the chance to get your “sea-legs” working.

The fantastic crew aboard the Mighty Fine works hard to give you the perfect trip no matter if it’s deep sea bottom fishing, trolling, exciting shark fishing, or an afternoon family excursion. They welcome all levels of anglers on board from the complete beginners to the advanced fishermen.

The Mighty Fine specializes in family fun and they love taking family groups, church groups, and corporate trips as well as seasoned anglers. No matter if you are a large group of 17 or a small family of 2, the crew on the Mighty Fine will give you the personal attention you deserve to ensure your trip is truly one to remember.

This was incredible time for myself, my fiancé, and two of our other friends. We started the trip catching live bait and the ride out was pleasant and went by quickly. We saw dolphins all along the way and we got great instructions from Nick, our first mate, on what to expect and how to optimize our trip. We went to 3 different spots and caught so many fish at each one. Had snapper and trigger been in season we would’ve easily come home with twice as many fish! We ended up being 3 fish shy of our limit and will be feasting on it for a while. I would say that we caught well over 100 fish and we came home with about 40. We can’t say enough good things about our captain, Nick, and the owner of the boat who personally came and greeted us and made conversation while our fish were cleaned and fileted. They put a bag of fish to the side so that we could have it prepared for our lunch in the restaurant immediately behind the west dock. It was a true FEAST and reasonably priced!! It was a very fruitful day and we will be back!!

It was a beautiful trip and day. The only big fish that was in season was the king mackerel. And we limited out so the fishing was great. Just wish we would have had more of a variety to catch but no control over the season. Overall it was an excellent trip and based off the other boats the were coming in we had the best catch. Everyone had a blast! Nick our deck hand was very informative and did a great job.
