What anglers said about Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Fishing in Destin

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.

The fishing here was excellent. Calm water and endless bites. Great for family or those that enjoy reeling in the fish. We didn’t troll today, our preference was for everyone to catch many fish. We caught our limit!

This year in September it was over 90 degrees everyday so far. So dress and protect accordingly. You have to learn how to fish this area if you don't know gulf fishing/salt water fishing. I look forward to next trip to Destin and trying my luck again.

The first thing is to learn is that you have to learn Destin. You may not kill it the first time. You need seasonal clothing and food/refreshments. Warm months require covering and hydration. Right tackle, etc.

Listen and learn, every trip out is an adventure. The fish may not always cooperate, but the scenery is spectacular and and the Captains I've fished with over the years have always made the trips fun and memorable...

Yes fishing with my 8 year old grandson who pulled in the largest Snapper was a life long memory maker. His father brought a 6 foot shark up the the boat which was an added bonus!

Our Captain took us out approximately 20 miles to provide the best spots for great red snapper. It was great. Our group caught some beautiful reds. We did have some issue with sharks taking our catch but we still managed a nice catch. The weather was challenging but the Captain kept watch and kept us moving. It was a great trip!

Destin is considered the best fishing village on the planet. Look it up. Just make sure your targeted fish is in season while you visit.

Enjoyed the private charter more than the party boats. Cost is more but worth the price.
