What People Are Saying About Snapper (Red) Fishing in Destin

"Great day!!"

Greg Rogers fished with Karma Charters LLC on August 6, 2020

Captain Rocky Not only was a great captain who put us on the fish, also a great guy! Caught a bunch of Red Snapper and a few mackerel!! I have fished on Many charters and Rocky was, by far the best!!

"July fishing trip"

Gregory Guardiola fished with Just B Cause Charters on August 2, 2020

It was a good experience! Especially considering that 6 of the 7 anglers were very inexperienced. We had one that caught her very first fish EVER, and a little one that caught a shark, Bonita and a Red Snapper that won largest Red Snapper of the afternoon. He was stoked! Good trip and will do it again.

"10 hour Trip with Mighty Fine."

Jason Williamson fished with Mighty Fine Charters on July 31, 2020

Absolutely amazing trip. Captain and Jeffrey were amazing. From hammering bait fish 5 min into trip. To a smooth ride out. We have 4 separate stops... And within 5 min of stopping all 8 of us were hitting beautiful Snapper (as big as 20 pounds) to Grouper... Shark... Trigger...etc. My only regret... Is we can't give 6 stars. Highly recommend.

"Memorable Trip "

Lee Mclemore fished with Affordable Fishing on Lucky Lina on July 30, 2020

Fun trip at the end of Red Snapper season. Caught enough that everyone went home with plenty of fish. First mate Steve was great and very patient with mostly first timers.

"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 hours with Capt Reid"

Amy Covarrubias fished with Charter Boat Rewind on July 21, 2020

Boat was beautiful. This was a family trip and first mate/deck hand Dylan was great with the kids, really encouraging. We had so much fun, went far out, and was happy with how much we caught. We had a fish fry that night and the Snapper was amazing! Thank you so much, we’ll be back!!
