January

While the weather can get a bit chilly, the fishing gets hot! Head offshore and go after Snapper, or stay inshore and explore the bays for your fill of nice Redfish and Trout to take home for dinner.

February

It’s still not warm enough for those pelagics to make their appearance, but there’s a variety of other options in the bays and on the reefs. You can do some prolific fishing and catch Trout, Redfish, Snapper, and Amberjack.

March

As the weather begins to warm up, the angling gets a lot more interesting. The fishing season is just about to start, with great numbers of Cobia coming up to the reefs. Casting in the bay remains strong.

April

This is when the real fun begins! In April you’ll see Cobia fishing reaching its peak, and anglers from all over the world start coming to the area for their chance to land that monster trophy fish.

May

Marking the beginning of the offshore season, this is a great time to visit if you’re looking for great action further from shore. You can try trolling for some of the pelagic species that swim through the area, or bottom fish for Grouper.

June

This is the best time to visit to have a full Florida getaway. Marking the start of the holiday season, fishing in June is especially productive, with a variety of pelagics to be caught offshore, and with the inshore bite as hot as ever.

July

With the temperatures rising and the summer in full swing, you’ll want to head out offshore and try to reel in a big Red Snapper. Inshore, you’ll find the Tarpon bite to be hot during the high season.

August

As the high season continues, heading to the deep waters will provide you with great chances of breaking some records. You’ll find all the prized pelagics, with the reefs and shallow waters equally productive.

September

This is when the crowds start to die down, but the fishing isn’t going anywhere. It’s still warm, and it’s a great time to be out on the water, with species like Tuna and Sailfish coming pretty close to shore.

October

While the temperatures slowly start to go down, you’ll find the visiting in October is just as fun as in the summer. And with the Destin Fishing Rodeo happening next door, you can test your skills and try to get a nice prize.

November

Marking the end of the pelagic season, November is your chance to get that last bite. Fishing in the bay, as well as bottom fishing the reefs is still hot, so come out and fill your freezer in preparation for the holidays!

December

This is when the temperature drops a bit, but you’ll still have a nice time on the Florida coast. Spend your day visiting the reefs and trying out some bottom fishing – you’re sure to catch a nice dinner!

I would recommend a private fishing charter on the bay for first timers. It’s relaxed, more personable, and sure to be a great time

Be sure to bring a long sleeve shirt if fishing in the morning. Even when it is warm out the boat ride out can get a little cold.

Don’t overlook Bay fishing as you spend less time driving and more time fishing. Also, a good compromise for those not sure about off shore or want to get the family involved.

Based on weather conditions we were still able to catch and release some good sized Amberjacks. Captain James Scott provided us the best experience possible since the weather was out of his control.

Can't recommend Capt James enough. He went above and beyond to make every effort to put me on good spots for the duration of my charter. He is a professional, very easy to work and get along with, keeps his boat in top notch shape, and knows his trade backwards and forwards. Would recommend him to anyone. Will book again. Thanks for a great trip.

Took my wife and 2 boys (8 and 10) for their first salt water fishing experience. Able to get on some fish quickly. Captain was very good about casting into good spots and rebaiting when needed. Even made stops so the kids could jump in the water to cool down. Very fun experience.

Went out with James for a 6 hour trip and despite the stronger winds than predicted James put us on the fish. He even gave us extra time to make up for the time spent catching bait. Would definitely recommend!

We had good weather and a great time. We were a party of 4 half who had never been offshore fishing. Despite being harassed by Dolphins and later sharks Captain Scott put us on some fish. The highlight of the day was watching one of our new fishermen catch an 80lb Amberjack followed by the other first timer catching one weighing in around 60lbs. Lots of Red Snapper and a couple varieties we could keep. All in all a good day fishing.

We were on fish within 10 minutes and stayed on them the entire trip. Our guide Justin did not miss a beat. He spoiled us by baiting hooks and sometimes casting just to keep us in the fish. I will definitely be back!

It was the first time my new bride had ever been fishing. She almost didn’t go because she was afraid of getting sea sick and all kinds of other fears but at the last minute she decided to go. The boat was so nice and smooth and Captain James paid special attention to her knowing she had zero experience. She LOVED it. Nothing but smiles. She caught a couple of bonita and three red snappers. Just a great experience for all. We will definitely book with him next time we are here.

We did a noon trip with Captain Justin and it was awesome! His knowledge of the waters and fish in the area made it easy to limit out on specks and catch and release several others! We look forward to our next visit to Destin and charter with captain Justin!!
