Size Matters Inshore

119 Crest Drive Dr
Miramar Beach FL, United States

Size Matters Inshore is a fishing charter that specializes in inshore trips in the beautiful waters of Destin, FL. They are very family friendly and children are always regarded as an added plus. The charter is operated by Captain Ryan Jones - a USCG Licensed Captain who loves nothing more than seeing his guests’ smiling faces when they catch the fish of their dreams!

You will fish aboard his brand new 25 foot center console Contender boat, which was built in 2017. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots, this is a speedy vessel that will get you out and back in a very efficient manner. It has all the state of the art electronics and safety equipment you need for a safe and successful trip, and boasts a wireless trolling motor for effortless fishing.

Size Matters Inshore will take you fishing in the Destin waters where you will catch plenty of fish that have both game and food qualities. The list includes Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Flounder, Red Snapper, Grouper, Sheepshead, Spanish and King Mackerel, Cobia, Speckled Trout, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and many more!

You are welcome to bring a cooler that will help you transport your catch home safely as it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip. Most trips are in the mornings unless requested otherwise. Captain Ryan is flexible and will try hard to accommodate any special requests that you may have.
