Island Fishing

    The Okaloosa Island
    Fishing Pier pier is a
    1262' long concrete pier
    located about 4 miles
    west of the Destin Bridge.
    It is an excellent place to
    go for a shorebound
    fisherman to catch a wide
    variety of saltwater fish or
    to just spend some time
    enjoying the salt air. It is a
    popular place in the
    summer, as tourists stroll
    the plankings checking
    out the views and fishing.
    Daily Report
Fishing Destin Guide©

A local's guide to fishing around Destin and the Florida Panhandle    

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.....
