Wet N Windy

Capt. Larry Pentel
March 25, 2016
Destin - Saltwater Fishing Report

Been a wet and windy Spring this year at the beach so far. Plenty of Fish to catch when we get a pretty day but there have been a shortage of those the past couple weeks. On the bright side, the Cobia are here !! I have not got to look yet, going bottom fishing on the couple nice sunny days this past week but all the piers and several boats have caught a few. The arrival of the brown backed crab crunchers will soon be followed by the bait and the Spanish, then the Kings, Mahi, Sails and all the vast majority of finny critters that make a seasonal migration. With the fish here we just need some decent weather, I am really looking forward to few weeks of Calm and Sunny!!

Here are a few pics from the past couple weeks. I am short on pics as there were several days when we came in just ahead of a squall or front and my folks wanted to stay either dry or warm so we didn't take the time to hang fish for pictures. Better to for it to stay fun and miss a pic than ruin a great day!!

These guys were more than willing to put up with a little drizzle to fill the fish box

Another happy batch of first timers.

There are a few groupers around and we have been having a shot or 3 a trip on big bites as well as releasing a few shorts. The Trigger bite has been really sporadic with limit catches one day and all shorts the next. The vermilion snapper remain the "go to" to fill the box. We had a few for dinner the other night and boy, I still say those are the beast eating of all the Snappers!

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.
