A Trip on the Finest Kind
Read more about one of our recent charter guests’ experience below. Hope to see he and his family again next year!
“Our family enjoyed a fun-filled day aboard the Finest Kind and we would like to share with you a little of our adventure in case you considering introducing your family to a deep-sea fishing experience.
Some of the things that contributed to our fun outing were all the signs we had selected the best charter boat and captain in Destin. Chris, the deck hand and first mate, put us at ease immediately. It was obvious that he was knowledgeable and experienced and boy was he ever great with kids! No time was wasted as we headed to deep water. Chris taught everything we needed to know and got us set up with the tackle and gear necessary for the first of many catches. He even baited our hook…a great relief to the kids as well as my wife!
Once we reached the first of Captain Mikel’s secret fishing spots, our catches were rapid fire…one fish after another! As we reached each prime fishing spot we listened for instructions…”Drop your hook to 140’ …count to ten…”and as promised we landed numerous Amberjack, a Destin speciality. In another location we reeled in Red Snapper. The captain told us that Finest Kind Charters specializes in 30-50 pound fish that will give you a whale of a fight!
We found the six hour trip to be about right for our family with a ten year old and a twelve year old. It seems Captain Mikel thought of everything…even video games to help the kids pass the time on the trip back to the dock. Our family had a great time and has memories to last a lifetime…although we are sure to book another adventure soon!”
Good Equipment Helps
The Finest Kind comes fully equipped with high-tech fish-finding sonar. Combine that with Captain Mikel’s knowledge of over 1,200 local reef areas and you’re bound to catch a lot of fish! Rod holders on board make it easier for young children to fight the big fish, and not all boats in Destin have them. And of course, a charter on the Finest Kind means all the basics are provided,from your fishing license to ice!
As with anything, you get what you pay for when it comes to deep sea fishing in Destin. Finest Kind Charters provides a true deep sea fishing experience which includes plenty of fuel to reach Captain Mikel’s secret fishing spots and all the latest gear and technology. You may notice that many boats take their customers out just off shore – for a cheaper rate, of course – but their end result is very different.
Returning from a charter experience with knowledge and a whole load of delicious Destin specialties makes the adventure well worth it!
