While bay fishing in Destin, we mostly target redfish or speckled trout, but it’s not uncommon to also target Spanish mackerel, black drum, sheephead, or black snapper.
We fish over grass beds, oyster bars, and around our favorite docks and bridges. We use the best ultra light tackle on the market from Shimano for reliable drag screaming action.
We also sight fish for Bull Redfish during the spring! There is nothing quite like hooking a 30+ lb bull redfish and being face-to-face with such an incredible species. (These are all trophy fish and they are catch and release only!) They definitely make a picture worth a thousand words.Don't forget to bring the kids. They are the future of our sport.

With the laws the way they are right now the red snapper sizes are abnormal size from years past. The average snapper we catch in close range is from 8-10lbs with a few 15-18lbs fish being caught. We use light tackle for them. Young children can use these rod and reels much easier than heavy conventional tackle. For the more experienced angler to test his or her skills, we also have ultra light tackle that is sure to give anyone a big thrill.
We like to do a lot of chumming to get the fish right up under the boat for some awesome in-your-face bites that you can see!
Whichever type of fishing you would like to do, we can make it happen. A lot of customers like to do a little of both trolling and bottom fishing so they get the best offshore fishing experience!
