Destin is considered the best fishing village on the planet. Look it up. Just make sure your targeted fish is in season while you visit.

Plan on heavier traffic and more time to get to the dock than you think. Also later in the day it gets cooler on the water than you’d think.

Obviously watch the weather. Finding a guide that matches your personality is the difference on a good vs bad trip. Fishing is spotty in early March but that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. We reeled in over 40 fish and lost a couple of nice ones for sure. We also saw dolphins everywhere. Destin is beautiful and being out, even in some rough water is fantastic.

Be prepared for the weather - wind on boat is 20-30 degrees colder… nice in summer but tough when in 40’s and 50’s! And winds can make water choppy which makes for a rough ride. Use motion sickness patch even if never seasick before… better to be prepared…

We caught vermillion snappers and a number of other off species. We had a blast and would do it again. Having said that earlier in the spring and summer would be more ideal.

We had a great trip, 6 hour in the AM. Capt Bobby and Quinn were on time, and after a short run to the reefs, we quickly limited out on red snapper. Highly recommend LoneStar Charter

Caught some big king mackerals! Did a 4 hour trip. They were so good to eat. The captain knew what he was doing and guided us on how to land the fish. He was very patient with our 13 year olds as well and they also landed one. Great trip!!

We did a three hour bay fishing trip. Boat and equipment were top notch. Blake took us to a few different locations to get on some fish. Our kids caught speckled trout and snapper. Blake was nice and professional. He kept everybody rigged and baited up. It was a fun, no hassle trip.

CPT Justin is awesome and knows his spots. We went out for 8 hours during red snap season and he kept us on the fish the whole time. He has everything you’ll need and shows you the ropes if you don’t know what you’re doing. Maximus (the boat) and all the equipment is in great shape. It’s obvious Cpt Justin is passionate about what he does and provides an awesome charter experience.
