  • Destin fishing report 6/10/09

    Get ready boys & girls - the fish are everywhere and there is something for everyone....and this is just the offshore report (heck maybe Eddie will catch fish this year! []). Trout and reds are heating up on the flats as well! []

    NEAR SHORE – GULF

    King Mackerel are still the hot bite near shore and continue to bite strong in and around the passes and inshore reefs in 60 to 80 feet of water. Trolling or fly lining live cigar minnows when anchored up has been the top producer. Dolphin continue to show up in increasing numbers especially around anglers fishing for bottom species. Just remember to have a rod ready and rigged with a pitch bait when they do show up. The near shore reefs and wrecks are also producing good numbers of Amberjack, Grouper, Black Snapper, Lane Snapper and Triggerfish. The Grouper are being caught on large pinfish, threadfins or hardtails with their tail clipped to make it easier for the grouper to catch them.

    OFFSHORE – GULF

    Red Snapper has been the top predator on most reefs and wrecks this week and we should continue to see more of the same this upcoming week. They are hitting jigs, live bait and deep running hard baits trolled over shallow reefs and wrecks. Amberjack are almost on every wreck from 60’ on out with the largest fish being caught in deeper water of 100’ or more. With all the bad weather last month the Grouper have almost been left alone. Look for them on the near shore reefs and wrecks. Fish in the 10# to 15# range will hit pinfish, threadfins and hardtails. You will have to remove the tails from the Hardtails; otherwise they are next to impossible to get to the bottom on a light weight. The amount of debris in the water has also increased this last week. So has the amount of Dolphin and Triple Tail on it. King mackerel are being caught daily around the mouth of the passes and buoy lines on cigar minnows slow trolled or free lined. If you can get out the blue water bite is still smoking hot. Yellow Fin, Black Fin and Wahoo are being caught around most of the deep water oil rigs. Poppers, jigs and slow trolled ballyhoo continue to be the go to baits. The bigger fish are coming off the bridled Bonito or large Blue Runners bump trolled around the rigs.

    Thanks for the info! Sounds like the lines should be tight next week.

    Just wondering, is anyone wanting to "pair up" and run a few boats to some specific places?

      I'm staying inshore if anyone wants to pair up and fish the flats.

        Possibly. I'm not sure if we are going to run out and fish some areas about 20 miles offshore or stay within 10 miles of the pass. I'd like to run out, but it will depend on who is my crew and the weather.

          Hey Steve - what would be your plan in 10 mile range? 2 years ago we ran to the edge and last year just trolled outside the pass. My crew is Beth and myself and if weather is nice I would like to venture further (not edge further), but not familiar with area. I know I can put school king on the boat out of the pass, but wouldn't mind bottom fishing and would love to stumble upon some dolphin.

            Weather permitting, we plan to run out to the Edge area Thursday/Friday. Anyone that wants to buddy up there's plenty of room to fish out there.

            The EDGE is a hard bottom reef that extends for miles of the Destin coast. Don't quote me, but I think it's 30 miles out or so and in 200' water. Need a good fish finder and some live cigar minows/hardtails. It's fun fishing......

            And the weather is looking good for the beginning of the week.... come on Mr. White Marlin !!

              Chuck - if the weather is nice, my plan is to run out to the Sandflea, Starfish areas listed below. It's about 18 miles out and a good chance to catch some grouper and maybe some AJ's if you can get the bait past the Red Snappers. Also, the trolling should be good and a great place to stumble upon some Dolphin, especially if we get a weedline pushing in. The Edge is about another 8 miles out, so you have lots of options once you are out there. Of course if Snapper is your game, there are plenty of places within a few miles of the pass to limit out with them.
