Destin fishing report update: 4/16/2018
Last week brought stout southeast winds, sun and warm air. A cold system moved through Sunday morning bringing cooler temps but the southeast winds and warm air should return in a couple days.
Nearshore/beach- with higher air temps warming the water and the southeast winds blowing there has been a few more cobia caught along the beach by traditional sight fishing. The next couple weeks should see a push of cobia migrating westward.
There has also been a few more king mackerel being caught by pulling plugs or live bait fishing. Trolling spoons, mackerel trees and dusters has been producing catches of spanish mackerel and bonita. (Ask about our 3 hour trolling special!) awesome for kids!
Deep sea fishing- bottom fishing for vermilion snapper, white snapper and triggerfish have been very good using 2 hook rigs with cut squid. You will catch a lot of throw backs but it’s a lot of action and fun especially for kids.
Shark fishing- Black tip and spinner sharks have shown up in groves along the beaches, these sharks average 40-60lbs and put up a very exciting battle and are good eating as well. There has also been sightings of big mako sharks cruising the beach following the cobia and tarpon migration.
Come join “Boggy Bayou Guide Service” aboard the charter vessel “King of Kings” and embark on an epic fishing adventure. Hope to see you on the docks, have a blessed day!
