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.  he  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!
