Destin Fishing

Known as the World's Luckiest Fishing Village, Destin has earned this title because of its deep-water access, wide variety of catches, and the size and variety of its charter boat fleet which offers deep sea, inshore and bottom fishing. There are also plenty of bridges, piers, jetties, and shorelines for water's edge fishing as well as numerous bays and bayous and freshwater fishing spots. This truly is a fisherman's paradise.
