Inshore Fishing in Destin

 
Hit the shallow waters in Destin, Florida, and you’ll see why it’s earned the nickname the “Luckiest Fishing Village in the World”. Whenever you visit this section of the Panhandle, there’ll be plenty of Destin inshore fishing charters waiting to take you off to the Choctawhatchee Bay and its flats and backcountry waters.
 
Year-round staples of the local fishing menu include Redfish and Speckled Trout. They grow to impressive sizes come fall and winter, so you’ll be up for a warming battle if you come out of season. These stars of the show are joined by an impressive supporting cast, too. Black Drum show up in winter, along with Flounder, too.
 
Come spring, and Mackerel make their way to the waters around the inlet, before Tarpon steal the show in summer. These prehistoric beasts will leap out of the water to try to get off the end of your line, so get ready to test your skills and strength to the max. With Jacks, Sheepshead, Pompano, Sharks, and many more fish visiting throughout the year, there’s never a bad time to come!
 
Trips range from a few hours on the water to the whole day. The good news is that the honey holes are just a few miles out from the marina, so you won’t waste any time before getting your fish on. We suggest half day trips for families and beginners, with longer Destin inshore fishing charters reserved for more experienced anglers.

What anglers said about Inshore Fishing in Destin

Go out to federal waters if you want to get bigger fish this time of year. Still fun to fish in state waters though, and you might get lucky!

The fish weren’t biting heavily today, but we were able to catch about 2 lbs of fish for dinner.

Try one of the party boats first round out. It's an inexpensive way to get a taste of the area and you have a ton of space to get out of the sun if needed.

Go when there haven't been any storms so your trip doesn't get cancelled from the bad weather

Verify what you are going to catch, I personally thought we would be catching bigger fish. Also fish booker made it nearly impossible to get in touch with the captain prior to our trip.
Very good

Bring lots of sun screen! ? Early morning trips, are better for less choppy water.

Check on the water temperature if its too high fishing near shore is not the best unless its early morning or evening but offshore should be anytime in the summer. Usually July through September water temps go up but ask the locals they will tell you.

The family had a great time. Although my son would have wanted to fish for a bigger variety of fish. We should have asked more questions at booking. But it was a great experience.

If it’s a first time, book with a knowledgeable captain to have them share a wealth of information for the most success.

Head out on an early morning fishing run before the water heats up too much or temperature gets too hot to enjoy the time.
