About the Captain

Taylor Bankston
Destin, Florida, United States
Member since October 2016
We at Destin Custom Sportfishing charters have saltwater in our blood. We live to fish and fish to live. I, Capt. Taylor, grew up fishing out of Grand Isle Louisiana with my family’s boat - a 40 ft Hatteras. We mostly fished for Red Snapper and trolled for King Mackerel. While coming to Destin Fl for vacation I would watch the guys working the boats as a kid and thought: "one day I will be big enough to do that". Now's my chance - I have been fishing out of Destin since 2001 every season on a charter boat and enjoyed every trip. It makes me happy to share the experience I get to see on all the charters. I have fine-tuned my fishing talents and now I’m a proven tournament winner and big fish catcher. I love to fish for a living and want to continue to do so. I will give it my all to ensure that you and your guests are satisfied and kept safe at sea.
