100 Proof Charters

(31) Going fast!

Locked Up Charters offers fishing trips on board their 100 Proof boat, which cruises from Destin, Florida. If you want some fine angling in the “World’s luckiest fishing village” - look no further.

Enjoy your trip with Locked Up Charters aboard the “100 Proof”, which is a big G&S boat with a carrying capacity of 22 anglers. It comes powered by twin 600 HP Detroit engines and has a maximum cruising speed of 14 knots. The vessel is fully rigged with all the necessary safety facilities and navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. Inside, there is a toilet, a shower, a kitchen, a bed, and a TV. The boat is air-conditioned and is fitted with a live bait tank, a flybridge to aid your search for the fish, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day, and outriggers with downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

Whether it’s heading 25 miles to the waters as deep as 600 ft to grapple with the Atlantic game fish or staying near the shore to chase whatever the Gulf season has to offer – Locked Up Charters will see to your every need. Cobia start to migrate in April and shortly after that you could already target King Mackerel, waiting for the Red Snapper season to begin. Amberjack, Grouper, White Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, and Bonito are available all year-round.

A trip with Locked Up Charters aboard the 100 Proof comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to put your catch together. The crew provide rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, as well as the licenses and the cleaning and filleting service of whatever you want to keep. Feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you.

With a combination of the stunning tropical horizon and some outstanding catches, your trip with Locked Up Charters aboard their beautiful 100 Proof will be a memorable experience.

Member since March 2017
Captain Ben O’Connor is a native of Destin, Florida. At the age of 10, Ben began working as a second mate on charter boats. After graduating the University of South Alabama, he worked as an IT guy for a real estate investment trust in Atlanta. He then moved back to Destin in 1999, where he started an insurance and investment business while continuing to go fishing 3 or 4 days a week with his father. In 2006, Ben sold the business and spent two years going back and forth to Cosa Rica. And only after having worked on a few charter and commercial boats, Captain Ben decided to join the 100 Proof crew.
