The Okaloosa Island
Fishing Pier pier is a
1262' long concrete pier
located about 4 miles
west of the Destin Bridge.
It is an excellent place to
go for a shorebound
fisherman to catch a wide
variety of saltwater fish or
to just spend some time
enjoying the salt air. It is a
popular place in the
summer, as tourists stroll
the plankings checking
out the views and fishing.
Known as the "luckiest fishing village", Destin is the home to some of the best saltwater fishing in the United States. The 100 Fathom (600' depth) Curve of the Gulf of Mexico draws closer
to Destin than any other spot in Florida. This, along with Destin's close proximity to the East Pass and the Gulf of Mexico, allows quick access to the Gulf of Mexico's fishing bounty.
The purpose of this site is to acquaint a new fisherman to the Destin area - our local facilities, fish, waters and fishing methods. Tight lines and good fishing!
