I've been fishing the Florida panhandle for years. If you just want to wade and fish, then get to the jetties in Destin early in the morning or late in the evening. Try some shrimp drifted down the rocks for the occasional mangrove snapper or redfish. As others have mentioned, the beaches are gorgeous but the surf fishing/bay fishing sucks at best if you're used to fishing our surf/bays. You'll enjoy the water clarity but I've never caught many trout or redfish, or flounder for that matter in and around Destin. Someone else mentioned the Pensacola fishing forum(PFF)...it used to have a lot of active members...you might also search for groups on Facebook that fish Destin. Years ago I met a guy off of PFF and I fish with him regularly. If you're just looking to bring some more meat home, you might try out one of the party boats like the Swoop. Wish I could go this year as I'd welcome you on my boat.

I agree with everything on here with one addition. I did have some success getting Pompano on sand fleas one morning while I was there, in the surf, straight outside where we were staying. Just an option for some ease relaxed fishing and good eats too.

Looking at Google Earth, I would certainly give the surf a try for at least one dawn patrol, or even maybe throwing a topwater at night. But I'd look harder at those jetties when the tide was moving.

We are going to Dauphin Island in mid August and what I have found, that could be prime time for pompano. Other info found live shrimp might produce redfish.
