Mid-Bay Charters

North Bayshore Drive
Valparaiso FL, United States

Book with Mid-Bay Charters for a fun, relaxing and safe trip! They are a child-friendly charter located in sunny Valparaiso, Florida, just a short trip across the Bay from Destin.

You will be fishing aboard a 22 ft Key West boat. It is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and is equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and a VHF Radio. Up to 4 guests are welcome to come aboard.  The vessel has its own live bait tank. A very quiet Minn Kota I-pilot trolling motor is added to get you close to where the fish are lurking.

Cruise Crab Island or fish on grass flats, docks, and bridges for Trout and Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and more, or troll nearshore for King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and many more. Trips start at $220, with each package providing a boating excursion during which you could use light tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, spinning or jigging techniques.

All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price, and the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.

The crew can meet you in Valparaiso itself, or in the Destin area. Customized to your needs, Mid Bay Charters is just what you are looking for.

Thanks for considering Mid-Bay charters!

Captain Matt has a nice boat, good equipment, is very polite and professional, and will put you on the fish.  All we had to do was bring food and drink.

What a GREAT day! I really wanted some flounder and a Mangrove or two (with a redfish in the back of my mind) and we boated all three. As a bonus, we also landed a few hardy bluefish and a Spanish mackerel. Capt Matt even gave us a little complimentary extra time on the water to make sure we all had a fantastic experience (which we did!) Capt Matt will most surely be my first choice for another fishing excursion.

First of all, Matt is an awesome Captain. We took two different trips in 2016. Through both trips we caught Blackfin Tuna, Shark, Red fish, Flounder and a gymormous Black Drum.
