What to Expect on your Trip

Lifetime memories made with family & friends!

Whether it’s a 4-hour inshore trolling trip with your kids or a 3-day monster tuna expedition, the emphasis is always on having a good time! Turn off your phones, lots of sunscreen, sippin’ a refreshing beverage, and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Capt. Phillip Blackburn and his crew will do everything they can to ensure that your day is joyous, fun, and a memorable experience. You do not need a cooler, keep them in your car or truck for a while for the fresh fish that will be taken home.

Every deep sea fishing trip is unique, with distinct forms of fishing requirements that are specific to the type of fishing. Capt. Blackburn understands where to find live bait, which is essential for a successful fishing trip. Every day before going out to sea, it’s vital to catch live bait along the jetties, sea buoys, and FADs (fish attracting devices). With all of the greatest big game deep sea fishing tackle, bait, satellite technology, and 25 years of experience on board, you can be certain of the best deep sea charter fishing in Destin along the Gulf of Mexico!

“The Back Down 2 is the only way to go! Best boat in the Gulf! Put us on a mess of Red Snapper, Big Cobia, and King Mackerel! Filled our limit of snapper and more! Couldn’t have been happier with our 8 hour June trip!”

George Dewey Sherrer Jr.

We have excelled in all forms of fishing in The Luckiest Fishing Village In The World, Destin, Florida, for the past 25 years. On the Back Down 2 Charter Boat, we can do it all and do it well. Capt. Blackburn has spent his entire life catching a variety of fish in the Destin East Pass area and beyond. Capt. Blackburn has distinguished himself from others in the industry by being consistent with his daily fishing results. And of course, his huge passion for blue water fishing, which has resulted in magnificent record catches of Swordfish, Marlin, Tuna, Dolphin, and Wahoo off the coast of Destin, Florida and it creates a winning formula for success.

You won’t find a better or more comfortable fishing platform than the custom-built 57-foot Back Down 2, nor will you find a better Captain and crew that will give it their all to ensure your Deep Sea fishing adventure is one to remember. When you return, Captain Blackburn’s crew will clean and process your catch for the return voyage home, as well as send you home with photos of your trip to keep your memories of this fantastic time.

Definitely recommend, they were friendly, informative and knew where to put us on the fish. We had a couple small kids through teenagers and a few adults and everyone had a great fishing experience, Thanks to the Captain and his one man crew. Definitely going again
