Destin Fishing Report 1-19-18

 

Well you don’t expect ice fishing in Destin but Wednesday morning those who went fishing were fishing in a mix of Snow, Sleet and Freezing rain. At 4:30 that morning the temp was 23 and a wind chill of -3. Can spring and summer please hurry up?

 

Even with the weather there have been opportunities as not every day as been cold, windy and or rough. When the weather has allowed there were some trigger fish biting last weekend, they are closed now, this is the last weekend of amberjack fishing for a while and the weather looks good to catch some of those. Other things biting offshore include scamp, mingo snapper, white snapper and red grouper.

 

Inshore Sheepshead and Redfish are the prime targets around the bridges and jetties using live shrimp. The trout bite is on and off mostly east of the 332 bridge.

 

In the surf a few bull reds, a few whiting and occasional pompano, Some mornings you see bonita chasing rain minnows close enough to catch on spoons and white jigs.

 

Deep Dropping can produce good number of tilefish, snowy grouper, barrel grouper and yellow edge for those willing to make the effort.
