Backlash Fishing Charters

Destin, Florida

Destin is a wildly popular destination on Florida’s “Emerald Coast” that has a wide selection of fishing opportunities. Capt. Chris Kirby is making a name for himself as one of the area’s go-to charter captains both because of his fishing expertise and also the level of personalized service provided by this hard-working young charter captain.

Capt. Kirby’s boat Backlash is a custom 40’ fiberglass sport fisherman that includes all the comforts of home, with air conditioned cabin, galley and head. To help you reach and find the fish, it is equipped with twin 450hp diesels, state of the art electronics and a custom tower for trolling and sight fishing for cobia.

Backlash focuses primarily on offshore fishing, and there is no shortage of opportunities off Destin in every month of the year. A standard 8-12 hour trip will focus on the great bottom fishing for snapper, AJs, and grouper, as well as trolling for mackerel, wahoo, mahi, and occasional sailfish. To cater to the casual vacationers, 4-6 hour trips are offered, and for the more hardcore (we’re looking at you, Red Tuna customers!) Capt. Kirby offers deep dropping trips for tilefish and grouper as well as overnight trips for tuna, swordfish and a whole fish box full of meat fish.

Capt. Kirby and his wife Shelby also own Destin Inshore Charters, in case you’d rather chase the area’s speckled trout and redfish. Regardless of the type of trip you’re looking for, when you’re headed to Destin on vacation, make sure you include Backlash as part of your itinerary.
