Fishing in Miramar Beach

Just a few miles east from the “Luckiest Fishing Village in the World,” it’s no surprise that Miramar Beach offers incredible angling opportunities. Separating the Choctawhatchee Bay from the Gulf of Mexico, it’s a haven for all kinds of fishing. Hop aboard one of the numerous Miramar Beach fishing charters and get ready for an adventure like no other!
 
Beginners and pros alike will relish the chance to get out on the calm waters of the bay. These shallow hunting grounds are home to a year-round population of Redfish, Trout, and Flounder – known locally as the “Grand Slam.” Come summer, you’re sure to have your hands full with Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, and plenty more additions to the fishing scene. 
 
You’re also just a short ride away from some productive reefs, where some of the best fishing action takes place. While everyone’s attention turns to Red Snapper when the season opens, there’s plenty of Cobia, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Gag Grouper and much more on offer, too. 
 
And there’s more! Deepwater canyons are well worth the long journey to the Gulf of Mexico. Mahi Mahi and Wahoo are the most popular catches in the deep, but it’s not uncommon to come across Tuna, Sailfish, and even Marlin, so get ready to push your strength to the limit!
 
To get to the deep waters, you’ll need a few hours, so trips upwards of 8 hours are best for this. Heading to the reefs can usually see you max out on a 6 hour trip, with inshore fishing lasting as little or as long as you want.

 

Rules & Regulations

Casting from a Miramar Beach fishing charter will mean that you don’t need to purchase a fishing license. You’ll also have the added bonus of the assistance of a professional captain, who’ll make sure you’re fishing within limits.

Grouper and Snapper fishing around the nearshore reefs of the Gulf is seriously strong, and the bay's Redfish and Speckled Trout action only gets hotter. The Flounder population is increasing, so the fun never ends!
