What Could You Catch?
Some may say the Spring season is the best time to go fishing in Destin. The weather will be the perfect temperature, and the fish in season include a local favorite…Cobia!
When does cobia season start, you may ask? The way it has worked in the past is the season starts as soon as the first fish is caught! They are one fish that put up a good fight, making it an exciting catch.
Other beautiful and delicious fish you may find in the Gulf during springtime are mackerel, tuna, mahi-mahi, triggerfish, and snapper (another famous find when fishing in Destin, FL).
Triggerfish often provide an exciting fishing excursion. They can be tough to catch and are known to steal bait right off your hook. Once you catch one, they are known to be a delicious fish.
Red Snapper is one of the most common fish throughout the Florida waters. They can be large in size and are known for their vibrant red color. Other examples of snapper include vermillion snapper, lane snapper (a rare find), and mangrove snapper.
