If you’re fishing in Destin during the winter, you’re in luck! The bite is still hot, just like our summer days! So what to expect while Winter Fishing in Destin? There are ample amounts of fish that will bite, but we cannot keep all of them this time of year.

Did you know Destin Florida has some of the most protected fishing laws? As we are known across the US as a premiere fishing location, we must keep our waters thriving! During the Winter fishing months of December, January, and February, you can expect to catch Red Fish, Flounder, Trout, Black Snapper, Mingo, White Snapper, Red Snapper, maybe a few Grouper, and Trigger Fish here in Destin. First and foremost, we abide by FWC Fishing Regulations; therefore, if a fish is too small, too big, or not in season; it gets released to see yet another day.

Just because it is a little chilly outside, doesn’t mean the fish aren’t there. Bring your family down for a ride on the boat, throw some line and get hooked on your next catch! Panhandle Fishing Charters are ready to help you make memories with your family. Call us today to schedule your trip at 850-226-3127 or 850-420-5502 and ask us about our winter rate specials!!

Tight lines,

Capt. Joey
