Attention All Fishermen.... Did you know ?

Destin, Florida offers some of the world's best saltwater fishing.  Anglers with both novice and advance skill levels travel to the Emerald Coast hoping to snag a prized catch in the Gulf of Mexico. From sharks to sea bass, no fish is out of range while casting a rod and reel in Destin, Florida.  But with any sport, there is always the "game-ender".  For baseball it's a grand slam, hockey it's a hat-trick, and for Destin saltwater fishing it's catching the coveted Red Snapper. The Red Snapper is so fun to catch, and the meat is so delicious it has become the focus of many Destin fishing charter trips.

The typical Red Snapper grows to a maximum of around 25 pounds, with the largest Red Snapper caught in Florida weighing 46 pounds (caught off the Destin, Florida coast). Red Snapper are typically found in deep waters, and like to hangout in schools near reefs, shipwrecks, and oil rigs. Your best chance at catching some tasty Snapper is to head out to deep waters, either in your own boat, or by booking a Deep Sea Fishing Charter in Destin.
