Captain Matthew Champion moved to Destin in 1987. His father took him fishing here and he knew fishing is what he would be doing for the rest of his life. In 1993, he got his first job on a party boat. Throughout his career, Capt. Matt has worked on party boats, commercial vessels fishing for Snapper and Grouper, and private charters. He caught so many fish in his life that he doesn’t need to catch another one, but seeing the happiness in his customers’ eyes while fishing is everything to him. Captain Matt has placed and won several tournaments, including five 1st place finishes, and one 2nd place finish in the 2016 Destin deep sea Fishing Rodeo.

 

Your Destin fishing charter will be the best experience EVER when you book with Captain Matt and Championship Offshore. They proudly serve the Destin areas and fish the bountiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. They have all Federal permits needed for your fishing adventures, and the wealth of knowledge to put you on the fish!

 

Championship Offshore provides tackle, ice, bait, and fishing licenses. You’ll need to bring your food and drinks for the duration of the trip. Trips 24 hour and longer we can provide concierge level for your party at an additional cost. For some of the best offshore fishing excursions Destin has to offer – book with Championship Offshore and Captain Matthew today!

 

The boat is a beautiful 42’ Buddy Davis sportfishing vessel that we call “Little Baby Sea Pig.” This fishing machine has tons of space with a climate-controlled cabin, full head (toilet), cabins, galley, and saloon. On deck we have outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, live wells, fighting chair, and everything you need for a successful day of fishing. All this powered by twin Cummins QSM-11 engines that provide well over 1,200 HP and a smooth, dry ride. There really isn’t a better fishing machine in Destin; and with Captain Matthew at the helm everyone has a great time!

 

Your Destin fishing trip can be a short 4-hour excursion, or up to 3 days of nothing but fishing, and everything in between! We provide full-service private fishing adventures out of Destin, Florida off the beautiful coast of the Florida Panhandle. There’s no better spot for your next fishing adventure! We can Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, and so much more! Book today and let’s go fishing!
