This was our third fishing trip in Destin.
Not the cheapest- but you get what you pay for & We all had a blast!  The captain and his first mate were excellent and immediately had us hauling in fish after fish, all BEFORE any other boats could get to that hot spot.  A few sharks, amberjack, trigger fish, many snapper, lion fish (5!), and even a big African pompano.  I highly recommend Capt. Justin & Maximus to anyone looking for a first class experience and some big fish!

I did not like spending 1-1/2 hrs. of trip trying to catch bait and still did not get enough bait.
The rods seemed hard to crank once fish was on the line. The size of the snapper was smaller than expected. The boat was in very good condition and the Captain was friendly.

We had a great day aboard Maxximus. Justin was right on time and had us on the water early. We had an easy 20 mile ride out and got going immediately on the Snapper. We missed a bunch of fish due to our newness to bottom/reef fishing. Justin was very patient and kept us going on fish all afternoon. We had some weather pop up, but Justin had us under control the whole time. The highlight of our trip was hooking up with a 275lb bull shark. What a fun experience. The boat is also top notch. Riding in a catamaran definitely has advantages especially heading into the rough seas. We would definitely recommend the trip and hope to be back fishing soon.

The forecast was gloomy, but the crew was willing!  We got up bright and early expect to be fighting the waves and the rain, but to our pleasure Mother Nature gave us no rain and light waves.  Thanks to Captain Justin we got some fish as well.  Got our limits of snapper right away!  We also got a tuna, amber jack and many king mackerel hits landing a nice one.  Captain Justin was great with our 5 and 9 year old, he was knowledgeable and very professional before, during and after the trip.

Caught a variety of fish from Red Snapper to Tuna and Amberjacks. I would definitely recommend this trip and I will fish with him again next time I’m in Destin. 10 out of 10!!

Great Trip! We went out the first day of Red Snapper season and we caught our limit. Captain was honest about what he had been catching and set proper expectations. It wasn’t fast and furious that day for anyone as far as biting, but he was able to put us over some good spots and if it ever slowed down we would move. We ended up with our limit in Red Snapper, about a dozen Mangrove Snapper, a Grouper and a Lion Fish. Also caught Triggers and Amberjack which we couldn’t keep. Wish the fishing would have been faster, but it was just a slow day. If there was any criticism it would be that we only traveled 25 mph out to the spot and there wasn’t a lot of seating for all 6 of us, but overall great trip

My husband & I took our boys (ages 7 & 9) out for their first ever deep sea fishing trip. They loved it & my oldest said it was the best day of our vacation! We asked if we could catch some smaller fish that the boys would enjoy bringing up first then move over to something bigger & Justin delivered.  He Put us on fish first thing & we reeled in lots of Vermilion Snapper, Trigger fish & some white snapper. Then we moved & managed to bring in a couple Amberjack & a nice size Red Snapper.  Justin was very helpful with the boys & if we went a few minutes without getting a bite he was changing bait or position. You will catch fish on the Maximus.

I was pretty disappointed with the experience. I had been communicating with Captain Justin for several weeks prior to my trip asking how the fishing was and asking what we would be fishing for. Justin’s response to me was “Usually cobia is just showing up in April so you got a good chance at 1 or 2 of those. Otherwise amber jack, vermillion snappers, king fish, groupers that type stuff is here then”. We spent a good portion of the trip hovered over a reef catching small reef fish using cut up squid, which is not what I had pictured based on the information I received from Justin, what is advertised on their website or based on the $1000 I spent for the trip. We were using the same bait and catching the same fish from the pier the day prior for $8. Also, they were catching a ton of Kings off the pier the day before and we saw a ton of other boats trolling in the area for what I am assuming were Kings. I guess I was just really disappointed in the experience for the amount of money I spent.

We just wanted to catch something that puts up a fight. I finally asked if we could go catch something that takes some line. Justin was fine with that and took us over to a wreck about 2 miles from where we were. He definitely put us on the Amberjacks which was awesome and the highlight of the trip. We couldn’t keep any but we didn’t care.

The captain’s website said all the gear was Loomis or Biscayne rods. It even says that the bait catching rods are Loomis. Every rod we saw on the boat were Shimano. The rod I was using for reef fish was a Shimano and pretty beat up.  Not a huge deal but again wasn’t what was advertised. We missed quite a few hookups and my son and I, who fish a lot, noticed that the circle hooks we were using were pretty dull. I personally change out hooks daily at a minimum on my own boat but the ones we were using seemed really dull. Also, on our rod we were all sharing to catch the Amberjacks, the line didn’t go through one of the guides on the rod. Again, not a huge deal but not something I expect from a $1000 half day trip. Also would have been even more critical had we been able to retain fish.

Justin was pleasant for the most part but he didn’t really greet us first thing in the morning and there was never a “welcome aboard my boat” or any kind of safety briefing to show everyone where the life preservers or fire extinguishers were. Also, the website says “We keep a complimentary cooler full of ice cold drinks to keep you hydrated and feeling fresh”. That was never offered to any of us.

I also paid an extra $50 for two more guests to fish; however they ended up not feeling well and never touched a fishing pole. Would have been nice if Justin would have offered that $100 back to me since they were just spectators.

I guess in summary…...nice boat and good experience catching a few Amberjacks but this trip wasn’t worth what I spent and wasn’t even close to the experience I was hoping to have with my two sons and wife.

I am sorry if you fealt cheated in any way or if you weren’t happy with your trip. By no means am I happy if you are not satisfied. The state closed amberjack early this year so we couldn’t keep them. I asked as we were leaving the dock if you wanted to catch keeper fish, which are small to medium type reef fish or fish for AJs which are out of season but are the strongest. You said you wanted keeper fish so we went and caught a lot of vermillion snappers which are very good eating. We spent the last hour catching AJs as you requested, so I put you on them.
I only use OWNER hooks, which is the best and most expensive.I highly doubt they were “dull” hooks. By law we have to use circle hooks when bottom fishing. There is a learning curve when using circle hooks vs snatching with J hooks. I promise you that you weren’t missing them due to old dull hooks.
In regards to the gear I have gloomis, Biscayne and Shimano with all Shimano reels, better than 99% of charter boats you will get on. Again sorry if you didn’t feel a $500 rod and reel combo wasn’t satisfactory.
Drinks and snacks are not provided as stated on Fishingbooker site. However I do have waters on ice in the event someone forgot or ran out. You guys had a cooler with drinks that you were drinking so sorry if I didn’t offer you a drink.

Sorry if you weren’t happy with the trip, that’s definetly a first for me. I will make it up to you if you choose to fish with me again.

Captain Justin was a great guide!!!
My wife who is 3 months pregnant, my 7 year old son, my father in law and my self all had a great time fishing with Captain Justin.  He put us on fish right away and we continued to catch fish non stop. Captain Justin was great with helping my 7 year old get several fish on and coached him to stay after the fish when he was wearing down. We had a great time and I highly recommend this to anyone with children or anyone wanting to have a great time catching fish!!!  He even took us to some areas to see dolphins and sea turtles Thanks Captain Justin!

Boat had latest equipment and got us out quickly and easily handled the largest waves.  Captain Justin was very patient with my son and I who have little experience salt water fishing.  He knew exactly where to fish and what technique to hook up and get the fish in the boat.  We hauled in and released a bunch of amber jack and large red snapper but the big catch was a heathy 44lb Cobia which we just finished grilling up (after Capt Justin cleaned and packaged it up for us).  Highly recommend booking this trip - we will definitely do it again next time we are here.

I booked this trip for my dad, husband and brother. They said it was the best charter experience they have ever had! Justin offered two options…fish for good eating fish or big fish. Given that we were from out of town and couldn’t take fish home, the guys decided to pursue big fish. They were not disappointed! It was constant action from start (bait fishing) to finish. After a number of successful hauls near a shipwreck, circling sharks stole a few which added to the excitement. By the end of the day their forearms were burning and they happily turned the rod over to the next guy in line. We would highly recommend this charter service and look forward to booking again next time we are in town.

Awesome day.  Captain Justin texted that the seas were getting really rough farther out.  He came up with a plan for my kids to have a great time a little closer in.  He even took us out there and offered to not charge us if we did not like the spot.  Needless to say my boys caught a lot of fish and learned about each species.

The trip was amazing. Captain Justin put us rite on the fish. He has the fastest boat in the fleet.  We caught a bunch of fish. We will be going out on the MAXIMUS again soon.

Captain Justin is the man!  He was funny, patient and made our fishing trip a memorable one.  The boat was comfortable and spacious.  He even took the time to point out the sea turtles and stopped the boat so we could see a dolphin run.  Thank you for a great esperience.  Highly recommend anyone to book this trip.

Even with choppy waters overcast sky’s and seasick passengers Captain Justin still got us in some fish. Two parents and four kids from 6-14. Everyone fished everyone caught and everyone had a blast. Will definitely go with Justin again.
