Destin Fishing Report 6-11-17 to 6-18-17

Can you say Tarpon, the tarpon bite this week has really turned on. they are catching them along the coast fishing just off the sand bar and off all the local piers. If you have not given tarpon a shot you should. It is a exciting fishery as you get to spot cast the fish, they average near 100lbs and we catch a lot over 125lbs. The ariel show these fish put on is spetcular and there fight is second to none.

The next big thing is the s...wordfish bite for both daytime and nightime fishing, The past was just about as good as it gets swordfishing, The Charter Boat Back Down 2 was 7 for 6 on swordfish this past week. Most all of them well over 100lbs.

Nearshore Trolling---Kings have been very aggressive, plenty of bonita and chicken dolphin

Offshore Trolling---good catches of tuna both blackfin and yellowfin, some pretty wahoo and dolphin

Bottom Fishing---Red snapper dont bite much better than thay have, black snapper if you chum, bull mingos, and some pretty gag grouper.

Bay Fishing---Mostly trout and reds, now that temps are climbing you will want to fish first light, dusk and nightime under the dock lights.

Pier Fishing---Tarpon are the main stay of action, a few kings, bonita, ladyfish and hardtails.

Surf Fishing--Mostly sharks in the evening, ladyfish and hardtails in the day
