I've been with Daybreak and TopGun but both were a few years ago. August is hot !!! I walked down to the kiosks at the docks and went as an add on. Many different length trips, I told the girl I wanted to go with whoever was catching the most fish and she put me on Daybreak and we tore them up. Amberjack, Grouper, snapper, scamp.....talked to deck hand on a boat that had a bunch of fish another time and asked if they had any add on spots, he called the captain and said they didn't have a trip planned but if they had and needed another I would have jumped on. The longer the trip then generally the further they can go out. Don't hesitate to get to the docks on Monday and watch the catches then go talk to them and see if they have any spots that week. Completely different if you're wanting to charter a whole boat but that would cost the same as the house for the week......

I fished on the boat called Striker just yesterday. It's not the biggest or nicest fishing boat in Destin, but Bill and Jake put us on the fish. We limited out on red snapper (biggest was 30 pounds!!!!!), lots of AJ (out of season though), mingo snapper, one wahoo, and one mahi mahi. Of course the normal bonita and such as well as a jack crevalle.

If you ever go back Capt Stan Phillips on the charger boat Destination is fantastic. I have been on 50 or so offshore charters and 3 of the top 5 trips have been with Capt. Stan! The best was in August for AJ’s, Grouper, Black Fin & wahoo.

I promise you won’t be sorry if you go with him.
