Always Tight Fishing Charters

Capt. Tyler Allen Destin, US Incorporated Licensed Insured

Always Tight Fishing Charters is a locally owned and operated private offshore charter boat offering professionally guided trips for anglers of all skill levels! Destin, Florida has earned the reputation as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, and you’re about to find out why!

Captain Tyler Allen is a lifelong angler, having fished the waters of Destin and the Florida Panhandle for over 25 years. He’s run thousands of charters both as a first mate for other charter operations, and at the helm running Always Tight Fishing Charters. Capt. Tyler has the local knowledge and experience needed to put YOU on the fish! If this is going to be your first offshore fishing experience, don’t worry! Captain Tyler is an enthusiastic teacher and will work with everyone in your group to make sure they’re confident in the techniques needed to land every fish that strikes their bait.

Your Destin fishing adventure starts when you board the Always Tight, a beautiful 33ft Gulf Stream sport fish. She was newly restored in 2018 and is powered by duel 250hp Cummins engines. Captain Tyler has invested in top of the line fishing equipment to ensure you the best chances of having a successful trip! These include Outriggers, Downriggers, a livewell, a Fighting Chair, and state of the art electronics. Her cockpit is spacious enough to fish a maximum of 6 anglers, not including Captain Tyler and his seasoned first mate!

The seas, time of year, and your preference will determine which fishing technique we’ll be using! Always Tight Fishing Charters specializes in both bottom fishing trips, as well as trolling trips. Depending on how much time you decide to spend offshore, you may have the choice to bottom fish and troll on the same day! Each technique does produce different gamefish, but rest assured Captain Tyler will put you on the fish regardless of the technique.

On our bottom fishing trips we’ll be fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Vermilion Snapper, Triggerfish, Sharks, and other exciting gamefish! While trolling, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Bonito, Blackfin Tuna, and more is what you can expect to find tugging on the other end of your line! Your trip cost for the day includes a seasoned first mate that will set the lines and help with anything else you may need. The price also includes use of Always Tight Fishing Charters’ tournament quality fishing tackle and a fishing license for all on board.

Why read about the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” when you can find out on your own! Spend the day fishing Destin’s abundant offshore waters with the friendly and professional Always Tight Fishing Charters team. Many great memories await, book your trip today!
