Destin Fishing Report

  • Destin Fishing Report 09-11-2018

    Destin Fishing Report 09-08-18   Summer has come and gone, and now we start looking to fall fishing! White marlin, blackfin tuna, flounder and the return of pompano in the surf will be some of the new targets. We will also be looking to the 70th annual Destin Fishing Rodeo going.   Nearshore Trolling Kings are biting over natural bottom and reefs, trolling plugs and live baits. Blackfin are starting to show up and the Bonita are still biting.   Offshore Trolling As mentioned earlier the white marlin have started to bite, of course, the usual suspects' of blackfin tuna, yellowfin tuna, and wahoo. Bottom Fishing Amberjack is the prime targets, fish live bait, and jigs in 180-350ft depths. Since the store, the grouper bite has improved and good numbers on the scamp. Mingo snapper on most reefs and natural bottom, the best action is in water over 125ft deep. Deep Drop Bottom Fishing Saw some pretty catches of tilefish, snowy grouper and a few daytime swordfish this week. Bay Fishing If you...

Navarre Fishing Report

  • Navarre Fishing Report 09-07-2018

    Last year at this time we had Irma in the gulf causing heartaches, this year we had Gordon. Both were a disruption to our routine and thankfully Gordon wasn’t around long so we can now get bake to normal operations. The weather this weekend should not be an issue for whatever you want to do on or in the water. A few folks fishing the Intracoastal and East Bay got out shortly after the storm, but other than higher than normal tides the fish were biting as normal. That said I would expect to receive more than a few reports of redfish and specks making it to the cooler this weekend. schools of big jack crevalle are all up and down the sound as well as East Bay. Spanish are also over the bay and are costing more than a few folks their favorite artificial as the fan cast the flats for specks and reds.  Prior to the storm, we were getting a few flounder reports and hopefully, this trend will continue so be sure to drag a few bull ore tiger minnows around your go-to flounder holes. Black...

Port St. Joe Fishing Report

  • St Joe Fishing Report 09/14/2018

    St Joe Bay-     Fishing has been fairly decent over the past few weeks. Reds have been caught just about anywhere, Pompano Point, The Canal, Town Beach, and The PSJ Marina. There's quite a bit of finger mullet running and I'd say that's probably the best bait to use right now. Flatlined or on a bottom rig with egg weight, bead, swivel and about 12" of leader material with a 2/0 circle hook. This should work for Reds and Flounder. It's been pretty successful in some of the area's mentioned earlier.       As of today 9/14/18, there are no reports of red tide in St Joseph Bay. There was small amounts reported in some places in Panama City Beach, but as of now, there's nothing to report. Check FWC for up to date information on the Red Tide locations. -Cape San Blas-     Still slow around all the area beaches. Mainly Catfish and small Whiting and Pompano. A few reds have been caught off the beach near the stump hole, but that's about it for the cape. -Offshore-      The bite is on! I've been told the "Blue...
