2 bookings
4 hours minimum

How long you come aboard for, you won’t be disappointed with Capt. Matt's 42’ Buddy Davis sportfishing boat. The captain limits groups to six to make sure everyone gets that five-star fishing experience. The boat cruises at a comfortable speed thanks to her Twin Cummins QSM-11 engines which kick out well over 1,200 HP. The list of features aboard this beauty can be fairly summed up as “everything.” Inside, you will find a full head, galley, saloon, and cabins, all blissfully air-conditioned cabin. Up on deck, you have outriggers, downriggers, live wells, a fighting chair, and more fishing gear than you will know what to do with. We specialize in offshore and deep sea fishing for both bottom fish and pelagic species. On shorter trips, you will be fishing 20-30 miles out for Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, and pelagics like King Mackerel and even Sailfish. At the other end of the scale, multi-day trips head out 100 miles in search of big game legends like Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Swordfish, and much more.You can also target deep-water delicacies like Amberjack, Scamp Grouper, Vermillion, Snapper, and Tilefish.  Looking forward to you coming aboard and having the best fishing experience you will never forget.  If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.

My name is Capt. Matthew, I’ve been fishing in the Destin, Florida area since 1987. Since I was a wee little scamp, I’ve always had a passion for deep sea fishing. My first jobs were on party boats out of Destin. Soon after I finished high school, I spent the next few years commercial fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. When I turned 21 I made the decision to start a trade, and I received my 100 ton USCG Captains license. Upon receiving my license, I began operating a 65’ party boat out of Destin, Florida. I operated the party boat for a little over a year but decided that was not the route I wanted to take. I went back to commercial fishing and remained in the commercial fishing industry for about 10 years. Starting in 2011 and until recently in 2017, I was given the opportunity to captain a private sport-fishing operation, where I excelled in the art of catching billfish, and deeper water bottom fishing. It was during this period that I decided to create some of the art that I still create to this day, which largely was inspired by the brilliant colors of pelagic fish species.

    This was by far the most productive day on the water I have ever had. Capt. Matt kept us on the fish for the entire duration and the weather cooperated. I can't recommend this trip enough.
