Matthew Lebrasseur

Charter Boat Captain

I am a Destin born native and have fished and lived here for my entire life. Growing up here is an awesome blessing especially for an avid fisherman like myself. When I was younger deep sea fishing trips were a rare and special treat for me so I looked for every opportunity to get out and fish anyway I could. I’ll never forget the excitement and adventure of reeling In my first fish and that is a feeling I strive to bring all my clients big or small. I am by no means the best fisherman around and will never claim to be, but I strive to be the best at showing my clients an experience out on the water they will never forget. Since I never had the privilege of fishing as often as most others in the area I learned not to take any fishing trip for granted, and I treat every trip that steps foot on my boat the same way. I understand the value of these experiences and do everything in my power to make the most out of every fishing trip.

Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:

Destin Florida Fishing Charter

Captain Matt worked incredibly hard to put us on the fish and even harder to make sure we all had a fun time. When one spot wasn’t working out how he liked we would pack up and move to the next spot till we found a hot bite. By the end of the trip we all had plenty of fish to take home which was just a bonus to all the catching we did. Great experience and will be booking with 850 Charters again!

Destin Florida Fishing Charter

Overall the experience was great & the Captain seemed to really know his way around, which of course is a plus. I say that because the bite wasn’t on at first but then he said some angler lingo that he then put in Layamon terms about the change of tide. When we anchored up at the next spot I brought up a few good ones quickly. I definitely would book again & would refer anyone trying to have some fun and explore the beauty of Destin.
