Destin - Saltwater Fishing Report
WooHOO ! The Kings have been HOT since I have been back. The best part is the size seems to be getting bigger every day. While we had 1 yesterday afternoon that went 42#, this mornings board had 6 over 25# with a couple over 35# A heck of a grade !
Some Happy anglers this morning
Yesterday mornings folks were smiling too !
While I love to catch and (eat !) Kings there are some folks that would just rather bottom fish. No problem right now-- plenty of those critters too. There are even some legal Jacks around if you don't mind throwing back a bunch of "just" short ones to get a few keepers.
These folks wanted bottom fish-- they left pretty happy!
Before the kings got huge we had a couple combo trips that filled the board with critters from the top and the bottom.
A pretty good mix for a 4 hr!
Just to prove it wasn't a fluke the first day---
The bite should stay good and with school starting in most of the country next week the fishing spots should get a lot less crowded in the coming weeks. If I didn't have to take folks fishing every day I'd probably have to go fishin' myself next week-----
catch 'em up !
