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.

Remember it’s fishing, there’s no guarantee for catching, but we are going home with plenty filets for a fish fry. ?

Book a 6 hour trip at minimum because you will have travel time to your fishing spots. Do not eat a lot before your trip because you could get sea sick if your not use to boating. Bring sunscreen and wear long-sleeved shirts to keep the sun off of you.

I only say good because of some of the laws requiring catch and release (not in season or too small). Fishing was still amazing though.

Captain and crew are very informative and helpful. Would recommend to anyone except young children. It takes a little muscle to handle that heavy tackle.

Listen to Captain Si, he can show you how to properly catch fish. It’s definitely different than bass fishing.

Go out fishing with an open mind. Day to day the fishing changes. Weather is a big/huge factor. Be patient with your Captain. They are doing their best with what the day brings. You might catch fish non stop for your trip, or get only a couple. It's fishing. And be polite. May God bless your fishing adventures.

I'd recommend using King of Kings as he was great with myself and 5 high school seniors (4 of which had never done offshore fishing). They had a blast!

Go for it, the area offers a lot of great offer of fishing. It won’t disappoint. The only reason I did not write this 5 stars was because I’ve had better days fishing in Clearwater where I larger fish

Not as good of fishing in March as it is in June when snapper and other fish are open for catching but still fun to reel in a lot of fish! Mingo is a good eater as is Trigger.

Definitely consider the type of species you aim to catch. Bigger fish require bigger/deeper water. This of course turns into longer boat rides to the necessary habitat. The time in travel can eat into the scheduled time for your trip. If bringing smaller children, you'll be able to get into feisty smaller fish for sure much sooner. They'll have a fantastic time getting into fish much sooner in the trip and have a very memorable time.
