Fishing News         

Known as the "luckiest fishing village", Destin is the home to some of the best saltwater fishing in the United States. The 100 Fathom  (600' depth) Curve of the Gulf of Mexico draws closer
to Destin than any other spot in Florida. This, along  with  Destin's close  proximity  to  the East  Pass  and  the Gulf  of Mexico, allows quick access to the Gulf of Mexico's  fishing bounty.  
The  purpose  of  this site  is  to acquaint a new fisherman  to  the Destin area  -  our local facilities, fish, waters and fishing methods. Tight lines and good fishing!

This web site is updated as I have time from other things going on. As there are a 1000 + different ways to do things, this is only
my way of fishing, nothing else,  and it is not the last word in fishing the area. I am by no means an expert but if you would like my opinion on something related to fishing the area,
please email me at
FishingDestinGuide@cox.net.  It may take a few days before I get to it, so be patient. Thanks.....

Lion Fish Menace
The invasive Lion Fish first appeared off the east coast of Florida in 1982. It has since moved
into the Gulf of Mexico and is reproducing at an alarming rate. They have no overall reef
habitat and health as they can eliminate species that serve important ecological roles such as
fish that keep algae in check on the reefs. Lionfish also compete for food with native predatory
fish such as grouper and snapper.

Trip Reports   
This site began a few years ago as a way to help people learn about fishing in this area. I am afraid age is creeping up on me and have slowed down some what. Moving
more to freshwater and bay fishing and afraid I don't get out the pass much any more. However, most of the information is still good, hope it helps.   Good luck
