Title: Destin Bay Fishing
Post by: Capt. Blake Nelson on August 22, 2012, 02:24:22 pm
We have had a lot of rain lately in Destin, but the fishing has stayed consistent. We are still catching some good keeper sized trout and reds but we are having a lot of fun with fish in the 10-25 pound range. Bull reds and Jacks are in the bay right now, following baitfish around and getting in frenzies when they find them on top of the water. We have been able to get on schools of 50 to 300 jacks feeding on top of the water. Looks like a bunch of little bombs going off with bait getting flung out of every explosion. When the fish get like this, we are able to throw just about anything in the water and hook up, a few times just a bare red jighead has worked great. Most of the time, though, we are throwing topwater lures just for the excitement of the strike. They will miss it a dozen times usually before latching on, but seeing a school of hungry fish compete over a topwater lure is loads of fun! Here are a few of the fish we have caught the past couple of weeks.
