Topped Out Charters

(26) Selling out fast!
4603 Legendary Drive
Destin FL, United States

Make your Destin vacation complete with a charter that is great for family fun or for the serious angler.  Topped Out Charters are located in the heart of Destin at the foot of the MidBay Bridge. Charters leave from Legendary Marina, next to Lulu’s restaurant.

Enjoy a day of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico on your own private charter aboard their 30 ft 2015 SeaHunt GameFish center console boat with twin 300 HP Yamaha outboard motors. With this kind of power, you will get out to the hot spots faster, giving you more time for fishing.
 
The vessel is equipped with state of the art electronics, which includes a pair of 12 inch Simrad NSS evo2 GPS units providing Chirp technology, auto pilot, fish finding sonar Echosounder 1,000 watt transducer, 3-D StructureScan and 4G radar.

In addition to their excellent fish finding electronics, they have recently added a trolling motor to the boat. This is a game changer! This type of trolling motor is brand new to the market. It has more thrust and a longer shaft, which is perfect for larger boats and rougher waters such as the Gulf of Mexico. The added benefit of the trolling motor is that they are more easily able to stay right above the fishing holes, keeping your baited lines in the water longer, increasing the ability to catch more fish!

All of their fishing gear is top of the line. The aerated live bait wells keep the bait alive and fresh the whole day. For your comfort and convenience, there is a fully enclosed private bathroom on board.

Topped Out Charters will have you targeting species such as Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Tuna, Snapper, Grouper, Redfish, and more. You will be supplied with fishing gear, lures, live bait, fishing licenses, bottled water, as well as cleaning and filleting of your catch.

After your charter stop into Lulu’s Restaurant in the same parking lot as the marina and enjoy a delicious meal and cold beverage while you tell fish stories and Captain Bill fillets and bags your catches of the day for you.

About the Captain

Warmer weather and the beautiful blue-green waters of the Panhandle lured me south after what seemed like a lifetime of working and fishing in the northeast. It only took a few trips to Destin with my wife from Louisiana, who grew up visiting Destin, to convince me to retire early from Iron Working in NYC and make a career change in paradise. So my wife, my dog, my boat and I moved south! While still in NY in 2011, I upgraded my Captain's license to the 100 ton master's license. Also while in NY, I was active in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary. I would love for you to book a charter with us at Topped Out Charters so I can hear your story while we are catching fish and enjoying being out in the Gulf of Mexico waters.

This was the second year in a row for me to go out with Captain Bill. As was the first trip we caught the fish, red snapper, that we were targeting and we caught our limit. I would recommend to any one without hesitation to book this trip

Always a pleasure fishing with you Eric.  A little rough out there with the rolling gulf but you guys were full on all day.  Thanks for the recommendations and of course for choosing to fish with Topped Out Charters and this rusty old ironworker again.  LOL.  Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Overall a great experience. Capt Bill got us on fish quickly and we hooked up most times he had us drop our lines. Caught many fish and for some reason lost many more. Also hooked up with 2 huge sharks that unfortunately got off. Capt chased them with the boat but they definitely overmatched our gear intended for much smaller fish. Great time and will likely choose a longer trip next time to hopefully increase the variety of species caught.

Great Pics!  Thanks for posting them.  Had a fun time laughing it up with you guys out there.  I’m still cracking up thinking about you guys agonizing while working to pull those sharks up.  Definitely a fun fishing charter!  Thanks for choosing Topped Out Charters.

Had a wonderful time with Captain Bill on Topped Out charters! All 3 of us were hooked up multiple times and managed to land several snapper despite less than optimal seas and a few pesky dolphins. Our own inexperience also resulted in several getting away. Captain Bill is extremely friendly and very professional. His boat was beautiful in perfect shape, all fishing tackle was in great condition and performed perfectly. Captain Bill also is extremely fast in responding to texts and answered all our questions quickly. I can’t wait to come back to Florida and when I plan it out Topped Out charters and Captain Bill will be my first choice!

You guys were battle tested with those rolling waves and you handled them well.  It was fun being a part of the excitement when you hooked on to those fish.  The pictures you posted are fantastic.  I look forward to seeing all of you again on your next visit to Florida.
