My father and i have been on fishing charters before and have always had a fun time catching fish. This year i decide to take my father on a 8hr trip to see what kinda monster fish we could land. After spending hours on line reading reviews and looking at what charters were available, the Huntress is the one that... More

A huge thanks to the Huntress Captain and Crew! My Dad, Brother and myself have chartered several boats across Florida over the years and this experience was hands down the best. Fishing in Destin this time of year (September) has its challenges with fish in season and hurricane season; but Captain Mike put us on fish throughout our 8 hour... More

Capt. Mile and Groovy were amazing! The weather was not the best - but they both worked hard to make it great! Tons of fish on the lines and a comfortable boat! We are already looking to book a return trip in October 2016! Only people I would fish with in Destin!

6 of us went out on a fishing trip on this boat - and I was a bit worried because it was the first time most of us had been trolling for fish, but it ended up being a ton of fun. It was a nice boat - and the air condition was perfect for those of us who couldn't... More

We had myself, my wife, her dad and grandfather (92) and our 4 yo son. We couldn't have had a better experience. My son is already talking about taking the 8 hour trip next year. The captain was an amazing guide and the two mates helped us catch fish, lots of them, and were so helpful in teaching my son... More

I was worried about booking this boat for a family reunion fishing trip based only on these reviews - but I can tell you there was no need to be worried. Mike and his crew are top notch and really care about everyone catching fish and having a great time. we had 3 generations of our family on the boat... More

The Huntress Fishing Charter in Destin, FL. is a great choice for offshore fishing, Captain Mike is very friendly and he really knows where the fish are. The action was none stop until we couldn't take any more than we cooled down in the air conditioned cabin for awhile than went back to catching fish.

So for my first trip to this area and first time fishing the Gulf- I turned to online reviews and profiles to find the "perfect charter". With all the EXCELLENT ratings- Capt Mike and Groovy had a lot to live up to- and they exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds- and lots of fish;) It was a perfect day!... More

This trip was by far the highlight of our vacation. I wanted to pass along my love for deep-sea fishing to my son-in-law's. The Huntress came highly recommended, as did Captain Mike and his mate, Groovy. My brother-in-law and and his son, my nephew, joined us on this incredible trip. I have been deep-sea fishing for over 20 years and... More

Had a great trip. Limit of kings (to 40 lbs.), lots of blues, some other species and a tuna. The coolest thing, though, was when one of the lines got fouled on the rudder. Groovy waited for the fish to go slack, cut the line on either side of the snag and spliced the two together. We landed the fish!... More
