Stop the search for your next Destin fishing charter! You’ll find everything you need at Got the Hook Up Charters!

With Captain Brandon Hilliard at the helm, you’ll have a great time fishing, bring home some fresh fish dinner, and have memories to last a lifetime. Destin is one of the hottest places to fish, and no one works harder for his customers that Captain Brandon and Got the Hook Up Charters.

Your five passengers will fish aboard the 24 ft Sea Hunt, a powerful center console with 250 HP Yamaha outboard. The downriggers on board help for great fishing, and a livewell will keep the bait fresh. We also have top-quality GPS and Fishfinder, so we’ll be sure to get your line reeling. And all safety equipment is certified by the United States Coast Guard (including life jackets, flares, and VHF Radio). Captain Brandon and Crew are also trained in CPR and have a First Aid Kit readily available in case of emergency. Your safety is a top priority for Got the Hook Up Charters.

Fishing the Gulf of Mexico means we have a lot of opportunity to get the Hook Up! We’ll fish for Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, Amberjack, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Cobia just to name a few. Techniques utilized by Captain Brandon include bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, spinning, drift fishing, and fishing with light tackle. If you have any questions about a technique, let Captain Brandon know and he’ll be happy to help. Whatever your skill level is, we’ll get you on the fish!

Excursions offered can be 4 hours, 6 hours, or 8 hours long. We recommend a shorter time for those with younger kids; and longer excursions for those who want to go out a bit farther in the Gulf. Inshore and Offshore trips vary in the kind of fish we catch; feel free to ask what is best for your group.

Your Destin fishing charter is just a click away with Got the Hook Up Charters! We’ll provide everything you need for a great day of fishing! Just bring your food and drinks in a small cooler, and we’ll take care of the rest. We look forward to fishing with you!

    We went fishing with Brandon this past week on a 6 hour trip! I can tell you 6 hours is up QUICK when you’re having a good time! Great company, great fishing spots, and very patient. We’ve already talked about planning another trip to Destin (6 hours from us), just to make another fishing trip with him! Highly recommended!

  • Loved it!

    Created Anne Nope

    My family had a wonderful time learning about fishing and catching too many snapper to count! Captain Brandon was entertaining and made our experience unforgettable! During our adventures we saw a giant sea turtle, dolphins (who kept trying to steal our fish) and an assortment of fish. We will be booking through this charter next time for sure!

    We had a fabulous time fishing with Captain Brandon for my nephew’s birthday. We have a running family joke that the “Fishing gods” are not on our side. I am happy to say that the curse has been broken - Captain Brandon helped us catch our fill of beautiful and tasty triggerfish and almaco jacks! Highly recommend!

    Captain Brandon PUT us on the fish! From trolling for Mahi to hammering the bottom species he had the perfect game plan. If you’re ready to have a blast on the water then I highly recommend Giving him a shout.
