Destin Bay Fishing

Destin bay fishing; What’s the deal with the bay anyway?

The fight of hooking up a monster Bull Red makes for some of the greatest memories! Destin bay fishing with Panhandle Fishing Charters provides such great opportunities for the whole family. The bay, specifically, the Choctawhatchee Bay, offers some of the best fishing around. Red fish, speckled trout and black drum are just some of the species you’ll be likely to catch. So, what’s the deal with the bay anyway?

Destin bay fishing, a hit for the whole family

At 27 miles long and 1 to 6 miles in width, the Choctawhatchee Bay provides plenty of real estate to reel in the big ones (Ruth and Handley, 2006). With a diverse ecosystem, the bay also offers unique visual opportunities as well. While on your Destin bay fishing trip, it’s quite possible to see dolphins and even manatees (30A, 2014). So, with so much to see and catch, it is likely that bay fishing will become a hit for you and your family. In fact, bay fishing is one of Capt. Joey’s favorites! Who is Capt. Joey, you may be asking? Just the Captain of the best fishing charters in Destin, Panhandle Fishing Charters!
