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!
16049 Front Beach Road
Panama City Beach, FL
Operated by the city of
Panama City Beach.
Opened on July 4, 2009, it
replaced the one
destroyed by Hurricanes
Opal and Ivan. At
approximately 1500' long,
it is one of the longest
piers on the gulf coast.
Its almost twin sister, the
County pier, lies only a
few miles east of it.
This web site is updated as I have time from other things going on. As there are a 1000 + different ways to do things, this is only
my way of fishing, nothing else, and it is not the last word in fishing the area. I am by no means an expert but if you would like my opinion on something related to fishing the area,
please email me at FishingDestinGuide@cox.net. It may take a few days before I get to it, so be patient. Thanks.....
