surf fishing @ Destin

Am going on a family trip to Destin and staying at Sandy Toes/Ocean Reef Resorts. Although we are going offshore for at least one of the days we will be there, I would like to fish from the beach as well in the evenings and early mornings. I was wanting to get some help and advice on what type of fishing/species I could plan on doing in these waters (from the beach) so I could bring the proper tackle with me from Texas. Hopefully someone on here is familiar with these waters. Any info is appreciated!

I just got back from destin last weekend and I had a great time. Bait was very hard to come by though. I walked the Jetti between Fort Lauderdale and Destin and got some mullet, but not enough. I ended up talking to a local and he told me to go to the harbor just on the Destin side of the bridge when the offshore boats come in. I gave a deckhand $10 and he gave me all the scraps and bait i wanted.

The locals told me to fish off the Jetti at night, but I was there more on a family trip so I stuck to the beach outside of our condo.

Thaks, advice is appreciated, I now know where to get bait!

what did you catch at the beach? That is what I will be doing as well, and I am trying to fugure out what rigs and setups I should take. I am wanting to try and catch a shark or two, but what else is lurking out therethat will eat?

didn't catch anything. Just hung out with friends and family. I hope you have better luck/skill than me.

I feel like the bait was really my problem. I should have started planning a little further ahead like you're doing.

I have fished there many times, more off the boats than the beach.

The jetty at Destin is good for blues/macs/trout when the water is right.
I would like to hear of a place around Destin were you could run a few big reels out from the beach with out any noses being bent.
SEE YA!

I was worried about that too F.A.T. so I only fished at night. I had a sherrif come by and ask me a bunch of questions. He wanted to make sure I wasn't chumming. He didn't ask for a fishing license, but i had one.

I have been to Destin several times and had great success w/ sharks at evening from the beach. The key is bait. I would though small jerk baits during the day/dusk for ladyfish. The ladyfish is a choice bait for sharks. I have hooked into a redfish wade fishing the beach, but that was rare. Once the sun goes down start fishing for sharks pass the second gut....I have had a blast doing that! Good Luck
