Red Snappers Every Day

Capt. Larry Pentel

Destin - Saltwater Fishing Report

The long awaited steady opening of Red Snappers finally came yesterday and there were lots caught. Some pretty darn big ones too! Now if we can just get this weather to realize it's summer time and it's supposed to be calm we'll have it all.

Prior to yesterday we have been catching lots of Vermillions along with Kings and Mahi as our target species with great catches of them as well.

It hasn't taken but just few Red snapper trips to remind me how good Gals are catchin' the big ones. Guys, don't get jealous, just be happy for a great catch for your significant other, sister or daughter.... Here's a few pics of catches where the Gal got the big un.

This fellow had resigned to getting out gunned Snapper fishing before we even started.

The gal that got the big one on this board has a history of out fishing the family..

Some of my long time regulars with a fantastic catch of big snappers. These guys have been doing it a long time and know the tricks.

Before Red Snappers opened up I had some families with some big hauls of other critters..

The weather gurus claim we will start a "normal" summer weather pattern on Wednesday this week. I am sure looking forward to a a stretch of calm.... It is a lot easier fillin the box when teh boat isn't rockin' and rollin' !

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.
