Destin - Saltwater Fishing Report

Today was my last day in the Grayton/Seagrove area for a bit. I'm off first thing in the AM to Indian Pass to chase Tarpons & Tripletails for about a month. While I'm sure I'll miss the "guarantee" of a full box off Grayton I sure am looking forward to tangling with critters that weigh more than I do ! No traffic and an empty beach at sunset is sounding pretty good after a busy summer here too....

We have been filling up the box everyday with some great catches. Even with Red Snappers closed the board has been full of great eating "red snapper" with Vermillions replacing the "true" Red. We have been able to limit out quite a bit the past week with catches of 30 to 40 vermillion along with Kings and a few whatnots. as I've said for years "for a photo op I want a big Red Snapper, for dinner a want a pile of Vermillion !"

No computer I can load pics on at the 'pass so it may be a bit before I post another report. Not to worry... as long as I see a ceiling fan and not roots when I wake up I'll still be on the water everyday the weather allows.

Here's some pics from the past 2 weeks...

These 3 had never been before. One of 'em told me the King he had was the biggest fish he had ever caught... until 10 minutes later when he caught a bigger one... they had a limit of snapper as well

This was a rough day that cut what was 'posed to be a 6 hr to a 4. That young man not only hung in there, he caught more fish than any 2 of the big guys as well as the biggest Kings!

These guys REALLY wanted to catch a shark, I made sure we had a box of fish first and then went to make 'em happy....

If you listen hard you may be able to hear me yell "Houston, we have Ignition!" in the VHF next week when we are launching those big silver missles at the 'Pass....

Come see what a BIG fish looks like over at the 'Pass...

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.
