    I grew up in Ft. Walton in the 60′s. I used to ride my bike from Ft. Walton
    to Destin and fish from the bridge. Destin was a very small fishing
    village. Beyond Destin there was nothing but beach, no buildings at all. My
    Dad took me fishing all the time in the Choctawhatchee Bay. I wish I still
    lived there.

    I fish in Perdido bay in alabama, West of destin. We have an extremely
    similar area here. I catch a ton of spanish mackerel on so called “speck
    rigs” which are basically jig heads with duster tails strung together like
    a school of bait fish. I just troll those around the second sandbar and
    around the jetties. I actually have had to replace the leader that comes on
    the rig with wire leader because I have had so many spanish bite my hooks
    off. Also, when it comes to specks, I use Gulp! swimming mullet in
    chartreuse color on a jig head. That bait will catch anything and
    everything around here, but I mainly use them for specks and white trout.
    Specks like a more protected area, which is probably why you haven’t seen
    many. They love their grass beds and any sort of structure. Great Video! I
    hope this helps!

    whats the name of the spoon looking lure that you bounce off the bottom for
    flounder? im heading to destin in a week and found your video very helpful!

    Not sure if you’re going again but I have a small piece of information. I
    go to Destin once a year in June and I surf fish. One thing I have found is
    that the redfish off the beach in Destin love gold spoon lures. I prefer a
    one ounce but I’m sure any size will work.

    Awesome video. I am interested in kayak fishing. I went deep sea fishing in
    Destin last weekend. Caught more trigger fish than anything, and of course
    they are out of season so I had to toss back. What type of kayak would you

    Great video! Thanks for sharing. I moved to the area this February and am
    just getting started doing some fishing. Great tips on locations and baits!

    Learned a lot watching this. Going to spend some time there this summer
    and trying to learn more before I go. Just for grins, try Joe’s Bayou, (go
    North on Beach from 98) to get a good place to launch and lots of good
    shallows to hunt for reds and trout.

    don’t know much about Destin but Pensacola is a different story I go to the
    fort Pickens jetties same I catch lady fish all the time so I get a
    kingfish rig and hook the live but be sure to use medium at LEAST you will
    get shark, kings, big Spanish, and some times a snapper

  • normandmel 2 years ago

    I just watched your video. I live in Okaloosa County (Destin area) and fish
    here all the time. If you wanna catch some Speckled Trout, use a Mirror
    Lure (suspended or top water) white with a red head. Those work awesome in
    the flats, on the west jettie, and in the bay. Good luck! 

  • Chawc – Ta – Hatchee
    is the pronunciation. Great explanation and video though.

    West size of the Destin bridge has a nice flat sand bed where red and trout
    gather misting early morning and sunset .

    I use the Popping cork with shrimp, pinfish, or croakers down by Gulf
    Breeze/Navarre area just west of the 399 Bridge on the mainland side. I
    caught seatrout all day with my biggest being 27″. A lot of fun.
