These photos and videos are representative of the catches you could expect fishing with us on the "Mary Lou"
Captain Rick Derek has owned this 48 foot Hatteras for the past seven years now. When he bought it, it was a diamond in the rough. With his dedication, blood, sweat and tears, he has completely rebuilt this jewel specifically designed, with you in mind. This vessel has to be one of the finest in the Destin charter fleet. From stem to stern you will find comfort, functionality and most of all, safety. With an extremely competative rate, you can get the adventure of a lifetime. Please bring the kids. If they dont want to fish, or they want to take a break, they can choose from over two thousand cartoons on the HDTV in the air conditioned cabin, while you fill the fish box. Come sea what you your missing!

WELCOME TO MY FISHING PAGE
This is where I can provide you with the opportunities that will expose you, your family, friends or anyone who wants to take the fishing trip of their life time. I operate a 48 foot Hatteras charter boat out of the luckiest fishing village in the world, gorgeous Destin Florida. My boat is the "Mary Lou". This boat has been owned by Captain Rick Derek since 2004. The "Mary Lou" can accommodate up to 6 people for a more personalized and exclusive experience. With a crew of two, we can do anything the larger boats can do, plus alot more. I specialize in trolling, and shark fishing. We catch anything from King and Spanish Mackerel to Wahoo, Cobia, Sailfish, Mahi, and far enough out, were looking for Tuna.
This is a great example of a Lane Snapper.
Just one of many types of Snapper you can catch on the "Mary Lou". Our mate, Arden, is experienced in helping you with your needs when your with us. Below are other types of fish that are plentyful and hungry. We have had many people who have done and seen things with us that they would have never seen or done without a trip in Destin, on the "Mary Lou". Below is another satisfied client with his catch of a Red Snapper, along with the great eating Rock Hind fish. Awesome. The 48 ft "Mary Lou" can get it done. Below, Will Kuykendall smiles with his 50 lb Cobia.
Florida Saltwater Fishing Regulations
You can check the latest fishing regulations by clicking the link below. We also follow federal regulations, as we are federally permitted. Season, size and bag limits are subject to change without notice so we check them every day to make sure we don't miss anything you may be able to keep. You are also encouraged to practice catch and release if you do not plan on keeping your fish, or only want to keep enough to eat while your in our paradise. You do not have to keep the fish you catch. Many times we get that question so, remember, it's about having a good time first and foremost. We want you to have the time of your life with us and keep coming back year after year.
The motor vessell, "Mary Lou"
Book with me on the "Mary Lou". You can have a chance to catch a world record IGFA fish like the one mate, Kyle Lowe is showing you above. This "Lane Snapper" is one ounce heavier than the existing IGFA record fish. It was brought to the dock on the 23rd of May, 2010. It was caught by a regular guy, from a regular town. He had no idea what he had until Kyle told him. It can happen to anyone, and that includes you. You never know until you try. Give me a call and see what you have been missing. 850-509-2544. Make sure you ask for the Mary Lou. I also offer video opportunities for you to save for a lifetime.
