Redfish Fishing in Destin

Known around the world as “the world’s luckiest fishing village,” the angling opportunities for Redfish Destin has to offer definitely live up to this reputation! Destin provides access to a variety of fishing grounds that this fish thrives in, providing plenty of opportunity for anglers of all skill levels to hook this Floridian favorite. Come and find out just how lucky these waters are!
 

What to Expect

A visit to Choctawhatchee Bay, north of Destin, is a must for newbies and experienced anglers alike. If you’re a budding angler, charter captains suggest opting for a half day trip, which will give you plenty of time to explore the shallows around Destin’s shore, as well as heading out to the deeper waters around Mid-Bay Bridge, where huge Bull Reds lurk. 
 
More experience under your belt? Plenty of captains here will take you to “Destin Pass,” where the bay meets the Gulf. These waters are usually pretty fast-moving and tumultuous, and are a great place to test your light tackle skills against huge Bulls!
 
If you’re willing to travel further east, you’ll have the opportunity to drop lines in the plentiful Hogtown Bayou as you make your way to the Choctawhatchee River. Both of these locations offer up more local-style fishing, with fly fishing and light tackle being the norm here. It’s the perfect area for Redfish enthusiasts to earn some serious bragging rights!
 

How to Prepare

Destin’s captains know better than most how important it is to make sure guests are “hooked up” with top-quality fishing gear, so you’ll be provided with everything you need for your day on the water. Just bring your favorite snacks and drinks, and get ready to try your luck against some huge Redfish in the world’s luckiest fishing village!
