What People Are Saying About Spanish Mackerel Fishing in Destin

"3 hour trip with Captain Josh"

Chad Kuhn fished with Just Reel on March 25, 2020

Just Reel and Captain Josh were awesome! We took the 3 hour trip and Captain Josh led us to 26 Spanish Mackerel! He is friendly, knowledgeable and was great with our boys! After fishing, he took pictures and cleaned and bagged all our fish for us! Book your next trip with Just Reel and Captain Josh! You will not be disappointed!!

"Spanish Mackerel Boatload!"

Ray Giuliani fished with First Shot Charters on March 24, 2020

My son (9) and I had a wonderful trip with Captain Mike! Our enjoyment and happiness were always first on his mind. He worked with fellow captains on the water and he put us directly on the fish! We caught 42 Spanish Mackerel in 2.5 hours (had to throw 12 back due to size)!! Best fishing trip I've had in a long time. I'd highly recommend. Thank you!

"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.

"5 hour trip with Captain Townsend"

Gregory Post fished with Boat Charter Destin on October 24, 2019

Captain Townsend is obviously very knowledgeable in what he does. The sight-fishing allowed us to catch multiple tripletail. Captain Townsend also slow-trolled live baits, which allowed us to catch some bonito and a Spanish mackerel. Overall, this was a great trip and I will definitely book again the next time I'm in the area.

"Half day trip with Captain Andy Hoolister"

Amanda Mcgillis fished with Frigate on August 24, 2019

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!!
