Destin's Premier Chartering Service!

Strike Zone Too, our very spacious 55 foot Ocean Yacht, can accommodate up to 6 anglers. There are 3 staterooms, 2 heads, a full galley, and a large salon that can accommodate all anglers. The cabin is fully air-conditioned and equipped with a 55 inch satellite TV with surround sound. This fishing machine is equipped with the finest tackle, safety equipment, and navigational electronics.
We can customize your fishing experience from 4 to 48 hours, so you have the power to choose what is most optimal for your group.
Our crew is prepared to fill your expectations and ice chests with some of the best bottom fish in the Gulf such as Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Triggerfish, Mingo, and Cobia.
If you are more of the adventurous type and wish to fish 24, 36, or 48 hours on a bluewaters expedition, we can target Swordfish, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, and Tuna.
After a wonderful day of catching fish, our crew will be delighted to fillet your catch, giving you the perfect opportunity for our local restaurants to prepare your fresh fish fillets!
Our crew furnishes all bait, tackle, fishing licenses, and fuel. Things you will need to bring are food, drinks, sunglasses, hats, sunscreen and other personal items you may need while aboard.
You’ll be fishing on the Strike Zone Too, one of the most luxurious charter yachts in Destin, with local Captain AJ Niemiec and crew.
We welcome you aboard with open arms on the Strike Zone Too for a fishing trip of a lifetime!
