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

"3/4 day "

Andrew Ellis fished with Mighty Fine Charters on August 23, 2018

These guys know where the fish are. Every time we stopped we were right on the bite. Nick helped with some hard pulling Amber Jacks, and got us hooked up on some King Mackrel. We couldn’t have asked for better seas, temp, nice breeze, and overall great trip. My wife’s first trip out and she is HOOKED! We will be back in the spring and hopefully back on the MIGHTY FINE!

"Great fishing trip"

Tom Swayngim fished with Mighty Fine Charters on August 19, 2018

We went out last Thursday morning. Had a great fishing trip. Caught fish all day long. We caught triggerfish, be liners, snapper, wahoo, king macheral , Cobia and a lot more. Captain Miller and nick were super folks to spend the day with. There were six of us. Highly recommend theses guys!

"6 hour trip with Captain Josh"

John Seikel fished with Dawn Patrol Charters on August 8, 2018

Had a great time fishing with Captain Josh. He put us right on top of Mingos, White Snappers, and trigger fish! We even trolled around a bit and caught a King Mackerel. Great trip, good down to Earth guys at Dawn Patrol. Will definitely book again when we come back!
