This video will cover everything you need
to know before you book your fishing charter in Destin. We’ll fill you in on what you can expect to
catch, the best time to plan your trip, some of the best fishing spots, and the most popular
techniques in the area. After watching this video, you’ll be one
step closer to exploring the Gulf and experiencing some of the best fisheries in the world. Year in and year out, anglers from all over
the world come to Destin, Florida to check out this fishing goldmine. What started as a small fishing village in
the 1800s has blossomed into one of the top fishing destinations in the Gulf of Mexico. I’ve fished all over this planet, anywhere
and everywhere I’ve wanted to and to say the least, this is the only place I’ve never
been skunked. Never been out here and not caught something. So, it’s probably the best fishing on the
planet as far as I’m concerned. With some of the most diverse fishing grounds,
it’s no wonder this small town has earned the reputation of the “World’s Luckiest
Fishing Village.” Destin is located on Florida’s Emerald Coast,
nestled between Pensacola and Panama City Beach. Its white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters
attract millions of tourists each year, but just a few miles offshore, you’ll also discover
a jackpot of exciting fishing opportunities. So what really excites me about fishing, especially
fishing here out of Destin in the Gulf, is you never really know what you’re going to
get. There are so many species and so many big
game fish that we can get to out here on day trips that it’s really exciting, you know? There’s something new in store every trip. It really makes you want to get up and get
out there, get you out of bed. Since the 1980s, Destin has become one of
the top go-to spots on every angler’s bucket list. They don’t call Florida the Sunshine State
for nothing and Destin is a prime example of this The area gets about 230 sunny days each year,
so you can expect a lot of sunshine almost any time you visit. In the winter, average highs rarely dip below
60 degrees Fahrenheit; meanwhile, Destin’s highest temperatures average in the low 90s
during July, the hottest month of the year. Needless to say, these shores are perfect
for a family getaway almost any time you travel! The best part about fishing in Destin is,
that no matter when you plan to visit, you’ll be sure to get a fair cut of the action! Even when the weather gets colder, the fishing
remains hot. Destin is well-known for its competitive fishing
as well. It’s home to a variety of fishing tournaments
each year, such as the Destin Fishing Rodeo and Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic. The cold seasons produce lots of exciting
opportunities for inshore fishing, where you’ll be able to target species such as Redfish,
Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum. Offshore bottom fishing is also solid during
the colder months and provides plenty of opportunities for reeling in the likes of Grouper, Vermillion
Snapper, and Amberjack. As the waters begin to warm up in springtime,
the action starts to get a bit more intense and the variety of bites increases. Many reef species come out of hibernation
and show up closer to shore. Once May starts to roll around it’s time
for offshore trolling! Pelagic species such as Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel,
and Wahoo show up in large numbers and they last throughout the summer. Once June, July, and August come around, it’s
time to whip out the big guns and target big game on heavy tackle. Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna flood the offshore
waters, as well as delicious Snapper and Grouper species. If I had to pick my favorite, its probably bottom fishing, because of the action. You go out there and you send the lines down
and most trips, it’s just “bam, bam, bam.” You’ve got fish on, you’re getting them
in the boat. It’s just a lot of action. I love being out at the oil rigs. Something about catching these big Yellowfin,
its the ultimate fish to bring in. Whether you’re deep dropping for Tuna out
at the oil rigs or sight fishing for Tarpon in the back bays, you’ll surely get what
you’re looking for. These types of trips typically range from
4 to 6 hours, while offshore trips can range anywhere from 8 to 36 hours. The shorter hour trips are really entry-level
trips, to let people get out there, and you know we’re not really going too far offshore. But you know, I know once you go once, you’re
going to want a longer trip after that because you’re not going to want to come home. It’s a lot of fun. Well, basically the six-hour trip you can
do the best of both worlds. You can to the trolling to these bottom spots
you’re going to, and then you spend a couple of hours there and do some more trolling, you know, and than you get the best of both worlds. The biggest thing is, in saltwater fishing,
you really never know. It’s just, you know, what’s on the end of
the line is probably the most exciting part of it, even if you are targeting one species. Destin offers
a wide variety of charters year-round and holds the largest fishing fleet in all of
North America. If you want to bottom fish over reefs, troll
the continental shelf, or fly fish in the bay, there are plenty of charters that will
tailor each trip based on your preferences and target the species that you want. Most charter captains will cover your tackle
and bait, and some will also provide snacks and drinks as well. Coolers are usually available on board for
you to bring your own refreshments and keep them nice and cold throughout the ride. The boat, gas, and crew are usually included
in the price as well. The only thing you should bring with you is
sunscreen, a hat, and your favorite pair of sunglasses. All saltwater charters are licensed to cover
everyone on board, so there’s no need to purchase a fishing license on your own. Just come straight to the harbor, bring any
essential items you may need, and you’re all set. So start planning your adventure today and
