Destin - Saltwater Fishing Report

After a bit of a rough and blowy start to the new year we have had some fantastic weather here at the beach the past several days. I did something I have never done before and turned down trips during the calm pattern this weekend so I could take off and attend the songwriters festival here in SOWAL. This was the 6th year and every other year my wife and I have had tickets but I have fished and not been able to make most of the shows. While I hate missing nice days in the middle of winter on the water it sure was nice to kick back in a beach chair and catch some great acts the past few days!

Prior to "going on vacation" I got to run a couple trips on some days calm enough to get out where ever I wanted. Both trips were locals and we had great catches on each occasion. We filled the box up with lesser jacks and vermilions on a freezer trip.

Lots of Fish to clean !

I took some of my hard core regular folks out that always want a big fish so we ran about 20 miles out and found the BIG Jacks biting fast and furious. We released a bunch, some by accident and some intentionally but kept our limit that yielded almost 100# of fillets.

My wife and I are taking off for 2 weeks to drag the camper along Southwest Florida and go places we haven't been before. I love getting to play tourist every now and then being on the side of the coin. No fishing reports from Grayton and the DeadFish for few weeks I'm afraid. I'm sure as soon as I get back I'll have an update on what's biting hot.

More Fishing Reports:


Gulf Fishing off Grayton Beach in beautiful South Walton. Red Snapper to Cobia to King Mackeral to Grouper. No need to get up early or drive for an hour to a marina. We will pick you up on the beach and be on a reef or wreck in usually less than 15 minutes. Some of the Gulfs best fishing lies just offshore of the snow white sands of South Walton. We also offer Tarpon trips at Indian Pass during the summer run. July and August have large schools of giant Silver Kings feeding just off the beach.
