Welcome to Half Hitch Tackle - Destin

We opened the Destin store in February of 1990 and have been in the same location ever since. Here we have plenty of fishing experts on staff and on hand ready to help you find what you need. We're known for offshore fishing around here but we still have just as much inshore gear as our other locations. This store's manager, Tim Broom, has fished Florida waters his whole life and is incredibly knowlegable on pretty much any technique you can think of. Tim has also been heavily involved in the Gulf Coast Sportsman Seminars and has worked with the Destin Fishing Rodeo for over 15 years. Half Hitch is also a proud partner of the Destin High School Fishing program.

Did you know?  Destin was named after Leonard Destin, a fishing captain from Connecticut who settled in the area in the 1840's. Since then, it has become known as The World's Luckiest Fishing Village.

2023 Destin Fishing Rodeo

The Destin Fishing Rodeo began in May of 1948 to bring people to Destin. It worked! Destin shortly became known as a summer tourist destination and “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”.  The Destin Fishing Rodeo is the ultimate fishing tournament for salt water anglers of all ages.

The Rodeo founders, people such as Howard Marler, Jewel Melvin and Willie Marler, decided that moving the Rodeo to October would lengthen the tourist season another month. Today the Rodeo is held October 1- 31.
