What People Are Saying About King Mackerel (Kingfish) Fishing in Destin

"October fishing trip"

Donald Cummings fished with Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina on October 9, 2019

Had great weather and a great trip. Caught several large Spanish and King Mackerel that the mate filleted and packaged. Also caught several other species while trolling and bottom fishing. Was going for another trip but ran out of time.

"Half Day Trip with Captain Kevin"

Rebecca Knight fished with Frigate on October 9, 2019

Truly a fantastic experience. We are a family of newbies, and Kevin was patient and kind with us and really went out of his way to make this a great experience. As a bonus my son won the daily rodeo with a 19.8 pound King Mackerel. Thanks for a great morning. We’ll be back!

"Half day with Captain Justin"

Byron Glover fished with Destin Backcountry Fishing on September 17, 2019

As every day is different,so is every fishing trip. Caught several types of fish. Some nice King Mackerel were keepers. Enjoyed time on the water with family.

Captain Andy took us around Destin, he was friendly and knowledgeable, informative and instructive and overall a seriously nice guy. He put us on trophy quality Spanish and King mackerel and we landed a monster sail fish! Best fishing trip we have ever taken and an experience we will never forget. Thank you captain Andy!!

Had a fun time fishing the gulf with Captain Mike! Caught a King fish that we will be grilling up for dinner. :) Both of our kids struggled with a bit of seasickness and he and his first mate were very accommodating and kind to them!
