Watch Out for that Tree!!!

Trip Info


I mean that in a good way and a bad way.  A huge log floating randomly in the Gulf could make for a huge disaster if you’re not paying attention or a great day of fishing if you are paying attention.  The log was its own ecosystem creating a floating world for bait fish, Mahi Mahi, Triple Tail and Black Fin Tuna When we saw the log we quickly changed from bottom fishing to top water fishing.  These guys jumped on those spinning reel rods and didn’t miss a beat and started pulling the fish in.  After the dolphins figured out we had an oasis of an ecosystem we left it to them and moved on to other fishing holes and back to bottom fishing which produced about a dozen nice sized Trigger Fish that we caught and released.  Another great day on the water in the Destin area.
