Fishing in the calm backwaters here in Destin, Florida is super relaxing and you are guaranteed to have a great time. Most of our fishing is in the Choctawhatchee Bay and Intracoastal Waterways.
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. If they get to go, they will learn to love the outdoors. Remember your camera, you never know what you might hook while fishing in Destin, Florida – The Luckiest Fishing Village in the world!
