Deep Sea Fishing Boat & Fishing Charters in Destin, FL 

Destin Fishing Trips Aboard The Charter Boat Checkmate II & Starfire

Welcome to Destin Florida, "the world's luckiest fishing village". Destin deep sea fishing is a unique and exciting experience! Let Capt. George Eller and his experienced crew show you a great time on their charter boats The Checkmate II and The Starfire.

On our deep sea fishing charters you will find that bottom fishing yields Red Snapper, Grouper, and Triggerfish to name a few; while trolling yields King Mackerel, Dolphin Fish, Bonita, Tuna and Wahoo. Sight Fishing for Cobia is a seasonal option in the Spring and Shark Fishing never loses its appeal. 

Capt. George says "Until you've experienced the thrill of catching a 25+ pound King Mackerel or a nice fat Red Snapper and of course the true fighting heavyweight, the Wahoo, you haven't lived!" 

We offer custom planned fishing trips, with charters ranging from four to twelve hours. Everything you need to fish is supplied. All you need to bring is food, drinks, sunscreen and plenty of enthusiasm. 

Whether you are looking for a fishing boat to fish with family and friends, or a business trip for clients or employees, Capt. George's more than 30 years experience fishing out of Destin will assure you a great trip. Destin is home to the finest fishing grounds in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Checkmate II is a custom built 48 foot Destin deep sea fishing, Destin charter boat fishing sport fishing boat, very comfortable and very fast, which will get you to the fishing grounds  quicker.
