Wear sunscreen. Plan to get wet while riding to fishing spot. Maybe bring a towel!

Find the right boat and captain. Many boats, but few know where or how to fish.

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.

We would certainly try bottom fishing if we had more time, but trolling got us on a handful of Bonito which are fun to catch.

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

Plan on heavier traffic and more time to get to the dock than you think. Also later in the day it gets cooler on the water than you’d think.

It's hit or miss really depending on the weather. Just take it as it comes and you'll have fun.

Obviously watch the weather. Finding a guide that matches your personality is the difference on a good vs bad trip. Fishing is spotty in early March but that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. We reeled in over 40 fish and lost a couple of nice ones for sure. We also saw dolphins everywhere. Destin is beautiful and being out, even in some rough water is fantastic.

Be prepared for the weather - wind on boat is 20-30 degrees colder… nice in summer but tough when in 40’s and 50’s! And winds can make water choppy which makes for a rough ride. Use motion sickness patch even if never seasick before… better to be prepared…
