In Destin, Charter Boats deep sea fish for different fish depending on the time of the year.
Charter Boat Fishing in Destin…….SPRING TIME…….. Charters in Destin
We bottom fish year round. In the colder months we fish further offshore 20+ miles for Amberjacks and reef fish. So in February our charters are at least 6 and need to be at least 8 hrs so we can get offshore to live bait fish in deeper water.
In March we start running family charter boat trips….. 4 and 5 hr trips deep sea reef fishing for vermillion snappers, triggerfish and white snappers. Usually we fish 5-12 miles offshore. Fun Family Fishing.
On a 6hr charter fishing trip we can sometimes get further offshore to live bait some amberjacks, but it can be risky because it’s a long way to go and it does not leave you much time to fish…. And sometimes they don’t bite after you have driven a long way!!! We love deep sea fishing in Destin, Fl.
We also target big cobia in April. Sight fishing for monster cobias on Destin, Florida charter boats… on light tackle it is a challenge. One on one, with a big cobia on the surface. We also fish several cobia tournaments during that time looking for that monster fish.
Starting in April the shallow water grouper season opens with red grouper and scamp grouper. As well as our family trips we start running longer deep sea fishing trips fishing the offshore shelf’s 20 to 30 miles offshore of Destin. Schools of amberjack, blackfin tuna and king mackerel show up on the ledges and we live bait fish for them on our all day trips (8-10-12 hrs).
We mix in some reef fishing also and fishing is usually very good April and May. (May is one of the best months of the year to fish on a charter boat in Destin for catching a variety of good fish.)
