Destin claims to be the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village. If you’ve fished here, you know, it really is!

Destin is a heavenly tourist destination because it offers the beauty of white sandy beaches, emerald-green waters, and easy fishing that does not even require anglers to be on a boat. Sport fishes may be caught off of the jetty and the pier. The best fishing months are between April and October, and you could readily hook a bunch of Pompano, King Mackerel, Cobia, Bonito, and Jack Crevalle fishes. All kinds of baits also work on Destin’s waters, so that live, frozen and even artificial ones could result to a great fishing adventure. {content credit:}

According to Trip Smarter:

“Locals like to boast that Destin is “the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.”It’s this access to deep water, and the fish that run there, that most accounts for Destin’s popularity with anglers. Throughout most of the rest of the Gulf, it takes at least twice as long to reach these depths.

Those who enjoy bottom-fishing will tend to the famous 18-fathom line, while offshore trollers head farther out to the 50-fathom curve. As a fathom is equal to 6 feet, those fishing in eighteen fathoms are in roughly 100-120 feet, and those fishing the fifty-fathom curve are in 300 feet of water.”’
