We have taken several other charters in the past while visiting Destin, this was by far the best. We booked the 8 hour trip. The prices were great, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The Captain puts you on the fish and everyone on the boat caught a ton. I look forward to my next trip on Sweet Jody.... More

I had a pretty good size stringer of fish, I wish it had been better but that was m fault as folks on both sides of me where catching bigger fish than I did. That is why they call it fishing!!!! Maybe next time it will be my turn!

We booked our second trip with Sweet Jody after a successful trip two years ago when we caught about 2 dozen fish. They have implemented a new system since last time whereby you are boarded based upon the order in which you pay. They are a cash-only outfit, so you will end-up needing to go to the dock early (i.e.... More

Awesome fishing for a party boat. Fantastic and friendly staff. The trip out is a little long but they put you on the fish guaranteed. One of only 14 boats from the gulf coast of texas to the bottom tip of Florida that you can legally keep a red snapper out of season as they help the fish and game... More

I actually went here each spring, for a few years along with my parents and always enjoyed the fishing. I would love to make a trip again with my family. Thanks Sweet Jody captain and crew!

Spent a wonderful day of fishing on this charter. The day was on the cool side, but we managed to catch a number of fish. Neil and Mitch the mates were very helpful. The whole crew including the gal that set us up where fantastic. The boat was clean and accommodating. They get my thumbs up on this one!

Found Sweet Jody quite by accident but decided to go on the spur of the moment. Had a wonderful time, guides were a great help, and everyone caught lots of fish and came home happy!

I was strolling on the Destin Boardwalk hoping to find a party boat I could afford, without taking out a loan, and then I found Sweet Jody Fishing. My first encounter at the sales window was very positive. I returned that afternoon with a friend to purchase tickets and guarantee a seat on Wed. boat. Seats sell out fast, so... More
