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

"Half day trip with captain Mike and Tyler "

Steve Bradley fished with My Chance Charters on September 8, 2018

Had a great time fishing with Mike and Tyler. They kept us baited and ready to fish. They were very knowledgable and able to locate the fish. Fishing this late in the year we didn't catch any big fish, but would like to come back when red snapper is in season.


Mike Sasser fished with Topped Out Charters on August 20, 2018

Captain Bill is attentive and knowledgeable and WILL put you on the fish. Only thing is crazy FL fishing law lets commercial fisherman keep red snapper but not recreational anglers for the majority of the year. Fortunately we caught a number of other species also.

"Hit August day "

Barbara Burleson fished with Dawn Patrol Charters on August 14, 2018

I asked for three things. Flounder red fish and snappy. Caught all theee. Snapper was not I season but we caught and release. TJ our captain was a real pro and worked hard for us to have a great experience. Will definitely call him up again next summer. Great time had by all!
