⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Had a great charter with Payton! Friends in town and we wanted an afternoon on the water and lots of fishing for a party of 4. We packed snacks in the cooler along with other essentials and we’re on our way. Fished the entire time, everyone had a blast and caught fish constantly…never had time for snacks. That is a great time! Payton was super friendly, accommodating, and experienced on the boat. When the trip was over our fish were displayed and cleaned for us to enjoy. We are locals and appreciate Payton’s knowledge of the areas waterways and sea life. We will definitely be back!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Capt. Payton was one of the most genuine fishing guides I’ve ever met and got our group of 5 into a ton of fish! He was nice enough to text us and let us know the water would’ve been too rough to go out the first day we planned, and promptly re-scheduled us for 2 days later. We spent 5 hours out on the water traveling to various reefs and had a hard time keeping fish off our lines. We listened to music, had a few drinks and all constantly had a smile on our faces. I would highly recommend booking a trip. Prices were also very affordable. Go get out there and have some fun!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fantastic Experience with captain Payton! From someone who has fished in this area for 50 years, this guy knows how to do it. Caught the most fish i ever have in 50 years with this guy and the service is exceptional. Play your own music, go where you want and fish for what you want!! Best guy in Destin hands down.
