We done a 6 hour trip with Southern Country Charters. It was the most fun I've had in a long time. He worked so hard to get us a snapper limit in rough seas and it was an absolute blast . Only reason I'm giving 5 stars is because I can't give him more . I plan to see him again this fall for more fun. Thanks again!

Had a great time fishing with Southern Country Charters. They put us on the fish and worked extremely hard to keep putting us on the red snapper, Mingos, and Mahi. I’ve been on a bunch of different charters in Costa Rica, Mexio, Hawaii, etc and our experience with Southern County Charters is at the top of the list.

Our charter was incredibly fun, we hit our limit of fish in no time for a few different species! The bite was consistent the whole day and we really feel like no time was wasted at all by captain Payton!

Highest recommendation possible, can’t put enough stars. 30 fish caught BOTH outings. I haven’t been fishing with any other charter captain and it’s going to stay that way. Payton & his crew offer an absolutely amazing fishing experience. From the excitement of the catch, to the awesome conversation, to the delicious meal at the end of the day, you will be 110% satisfied with your selection of charter captain. Experienced folk and novices alike will learn tricks of the craft, interesting facts about the fish & Destin community, and all appreciate Payton’s methodical and almost scientific approach to fishing. Honestly a highlight of both trips to Destin we’ve made in consecutive years. Great captain and even better person!!!
