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

"Half Day with Larry. "

John Svensen fished with Living Right Fishing Charters on August 4, 2020

Larry is friendly and great with the kids. He has a lot of knowledge with the waters. He can put you on a lot of varieties of fish. Caught some nice King Mackerel today.

"4hr trip"

Wes Harrison fished with King of Kings Charters on August 1, 2020

We highly enjoyed ourselves on the King of Kings. The boat is a tad small but it didn’t bother us at all. The first mate and the trainee were great as was the captain. Unfortunately the fish didn’t cooperate as much as we would have liked but we had a great time.

"Half Day with Captain Chad"

Tony Summerville fished with Frigate on July 25, 2020

My wife and two boys (ages 7 and 5) went out with Captain Chad for a 5 hour trip. We went about 30 miles out to catch some bigger fish, which is possible in Frigate because it’s a pretty fast boat compared to other fishing charters. I hauled in a nice ~20lb Red Snapper and my wife caught a huge King Mackerel. Chad was a great captain, super knowledgeable and was awesome with our kids.

"4 Hour Shark fishing"

Christina Dougherty fished with Stelluna Shark Fishing Charters on July 31, 2020

Had a great 4 hour fishing trip on the Stelluna. I only gave the experience 4 stars because we didn’t catch a shark. However, we did catch some awesome Bonita, Ruby Red Lips, King Mackerel and Spanish Mackerel while we were trying to catch a shark. It was a great experience and would definitely go again! Thanks so much.

We had a great time going out with Captain Chris! We had our limit of good size snapper in no time at all! We also caught a good size King with a flat line while bottom fishing. Overall a great trip!!!
