Measuring only 0.3 square miles, the town of Shalimar may be small, but the fishing opportunities it provides are mighty. Located at the northeastern edge of Choctawhatchee Bay, this tiny town is home to a bridge, which spans the Garnier Bayou. Because of that, Shalimar Bridge fishing is a popular pastime for locals and visitors alike!
 
The waters around the bridge are made up of a network of seriously shallow flats and grassy beds, and provide the perfect home for huge Redfish and Speckled Trout throughout the year. Come summer, and many other seasonal fish make their way to the bridge, with Flounder, Jacks, and many more coming to the fore.
 
If you want to fish under the cover of darkness, head out in the evening or early morning to explore the docks between Garnier Bayou and Shalimar Bridge. Trips can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day, giving you the full Shalimar Bridge fishing experience. 
 

Rules & Regulations

When fishing aboard a charter, you won’t need a license as your captain will have it covered. However, heading out on your own will mean that you’ll need to get a Florida saltwater permit. Not only that, but heading out with a guide will also make sure that you don’t need to worry about bag and size limits.

It was absolutely a great experience. Fishing in the early morning might be a better idea and don't expect that you will find the type of fishes you want. Availability are varies and it's always a surprise on what you will reel in. As first timer, just be patience if you haven't able to catch anything on the first try

This was our family's first deep sea fishing adventure and we had a great time. I took my wife, my dad, and my two sons (10 & 8) for a 4-hour duration. The boys had a blast and got to catch a lot of fish. Captain Graham was very helpful and made the trip a memorable one for our family. This was a great entry-level excursion for us and my boys definitely want to go again in the future. I think that's a great testament to our guides.

Went out with my son and 11-yr old Granddaughter. We’re all very seasoned fishermen, from other parts of the country so we’re not easily impressed. Captain Tim got and kept us in a variety of fish and especially kept my Granddaughter constantly reeling something. It’s the first time she’s ever tired and said “that’s enough”. Mr Tim knew his stuff and was the nicest man. We will definitely look him up when we return to Florida. I highly recommend him for a family outing.

If you’re like me and searched far and wide, look no further. This charter did not disappoint, we caught almost all our limits for each targeted fish. Also some extras, he was informative and educational. If we asked he answered. Overall great time and would use again next time we are in Destin.

Shaun and Solomon were the best guides that I have had. Friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Put us on fish immediately in rough water, and even with dolphins taking taking a few of our fish, we came in with a boat load of fish. Big redfish at the end was icing on the cake! Thanks again guys for a remarkable trip!

Another great trip with Captain Josh Nelson!!! Non-stop Redfish action, with most too big to keep! Literally every cast resulted in a bite. Book a trip with Captain Nelson and you won't be disappointed.

My son, son-in-law and I were first timers for a private charter. From the first communication to the photos at the end, It was amazing. Chuck is extremely organized, knowledgeable, and focused on giving you a safe and great fishing experience. Can’t thank you enough Captain Chuck and first mate Blake. We are already planning to do it again with you.

My family and I really enjoyed this trip, the weather was perfect, and so was the fishing. I was really impressed with their fishing methods and how they stop and fish for live bait on the way out. I’ve been on other charters and have never seen that done. They taught me a new way to fish for snapper. Several different fishing methods were used and these guys know what they’re doing and it shows. I highly recommend them and cannot wait to rebook when we return to Fort Walton.
