At the cheerful Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin, we are particularly fond of casting-a-line into our pristine waters during the cooler days of Fall.
When the humidity is low, the beaches are uncrowded, and the fish are migrating through our rich estuaries. There are many ways to enjoy this sport, with something for every age and ability.
The most popular fishing in Destin is bottom fishing. When bottom fishing in Destin, the captain takes you to places where there is structure on the bottom, where the many varieties of fish live in.
The captain holds position above the structure and the fishermen drop their lines to the bottom. Your captain may stop at several bottom spots during your trip. The most common fish caught while bottom fishing in Destin include a variety of snappers, trigger, grouper, amberjack, etc. All yummy, and perfect for coming up in your suites fully equipped kitchen.
If you love lite tackle fishing, your family may want to go bay fishing for Red Fish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and many others. Generally fishing in Destin’s bay or flats offers calm fishing conditions, ideal for the younger and older members of your crew, as on most days the seas never get over a foot high in the bay.
If you have an “Adrenaline Junkie” in the bunch, they might enjoy Shark Fishing at night.
Destin Florida is famous for our big Bull Sharks, and there are several ways to catch one of these apex predators, with the most common way involving anchoring the boat where the sharks hang out and chumming the water with bloody fish carcasses.
Common types of sharks in our area include Bull, Black Tip, Sand Bar, and Mako. Shark Fishing is a bait and wait game, not for the impatient type. You can go for long periods without a bite or even come home empty handed, but with that said, when a little luck is on your side, you can experience the adrenaline rush of a life time!
Another great Destin, Florida fishing adventure is sight fishing, which is a lot like hunting with the most popular Sight Fishing in the Destin, Florida area being for Cobia, a delicious eating fish.
The captain will drive up and down the shore line in areas he feels the fish will be migrating, like the other common types of Sight Fish including Red Fish, Sharks, and Triple Tail, as well as Wahoo, Hog Snappers, and rays.
Last but certainly not least we have Trolling. Destin Florida has some of the most awesome trolling in the world. Trolling is a method of fishing where lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water in order to entice fish to bite. Types of fish often caught include Mahi Mahi, Spanish & King Mackerel and Wahoo. On long trips, Swordfish, Marlins, and Tunas can be caught.
