Topped Out Charters

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, 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.

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.

Had a really good experience with Captain Bill. The equipment is very good/well maintained. The boat is great for a smaller group, 3-5 people fishing.
Our group ranged from lots of experience to a novice. We were very comfortable and received good instruction from Bill.

Glad you had a great day out there.  You guys brought in some big fish and hooked on to some bigger ones that we didn’t get to see.  Thanks for your 5 star review.  Looking forward to seeing you guys again.

Day called for 1’-2’ seas which turned into 4’-6’ with a nice steady wind. Despite the weather problems the Capn’ put us on fish. Caught plenty of snapper that had to be released and one guy hauled in a very nice A-Jack.

Hey John, Yes the wind and waves were a bit more than I like. We still got it done, just took more effort on everyone’s part. Great job. I’m glad the groom to be was the AJ prize winner. It gave him a hek of a fight. Safe trip home and have a blast at the wedding.
