If you’re in Florida and you’re looking for top-notch fishing, Sandestin is the place to be. Swap the Destin crowds for its little brother, and hop on one of the numerous Sandestin fishing charters for an adventure you won’t forget. This beautiful resort town is known for its stunning beaches and amazing weather, but fishing here is an experience you’re sure to love.

With the Gulf waters kissing the shores of Sandestin’s beaches, as well as the Choctawhatchee Bay on the other side, there’s no end to the list of species you can target. Inshore, you’ll find all the Florida favorites like Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, and Sheepshead. The nearshore reefs hold great numbers of Snapper and Grouper, and if you venture out a bit further, you’re looking at battling Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and many more prized game fish.

Looking for a nice family holiday adventure? Think about booking a half day trip on a Sandestin fishing charter. These trips are normally 4 hours long, and they give you a great overview of the fishing scene. For those of you who are looking for a bigger adrenaline rush, booking a full day trip or longer is the best decision.

You’ll find charters dotted around the town, so just head on down to the water and take your pick. You can head towards Destin, or move in the other direction and find charters at Santa Rosa Beach and the Choctawhatchee Bay Causeway. Wherever you go, you’re in for a treat!

Rules & Regulations

If you’re booking a trip on a fishing charter, you don’t have to worry about anything, as the captain will provide you with a fishing license. Going out with a reputable captain is the best way to make sure you’re fishing within the law.

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!

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.

This is a great place to book a short trip to get the fishing experience. If you are truly into fishing however, Louisiana has much better fishing charters and you'll get better fish in the Gulf. Come to Louisiana to experience what Gulf fishing is all about.

Our fishing trip was awesome with captain James! We caught fish right off the bat, and as soon as we weren’t getting any bites the captain would head to a new spot and immediately put on fish again! My brother and I had so much fun together and with captain James, he made us feel like he was taking two of his old friends out fishing! Captain James truly cares about customer service! We could not be happier with his service, do not hesitate to book your trip with captain James!

Bite was slow but he worked hard to put us on fish. We moved multiple times to find more/bigger fish but it was slow. Our group was four adults and three of them had limited prior fishing experience. He was attentive and helpful.

Great day, even in choppy waters. He has us on the action from the time we dropped the first hook. Mother nature wasn't the most pleasant but he made all the controllable decisions on where best to fish given the conditions. We had a great day... and landed a "trophy" cobia lol. We will be back!

We really enjoyed the fishing trip with Captain James. He was very professional and service oriented. We caught lots of red snappers and trigger fish but they were out off season. We are happy that we caught a few keepers.. Thank you James

We had a good trip but a cold front did not help with the fish production as we only got 1 decent sized fish. Hard to say the balance between guide and poor conditions that led to the disappointing results. It was our first time fishing the bay side and going forward we will stay in the gulf side where we always seem to catch fish.

I can’t say enough good things about Captain Janes and Apex Charters. Very respectfully, knowledgeable, and all around nice person. Took the time out to help my boys and made it the best fishing trip we have every had. Caught well over 50 fish, 6 different species, on what was supposed to be a slow time of year.

This trip with Captain James was fantastic. The trip included trolling and bottom fishing. Since the troll bite was slow, we focused on bottom fishing. The bottom bite was excellent and the catch included triggerfish, snapper, Almico and Amber jack, and shark. Captain James was personable, paid close attention to the needs of everyone on the boat, and was an excellent source of fishing knowledge. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is interested and able.
