Why is DESTIN, Florida called “The luckiest fishing village in the world”?

Ask any angler what his favorite tourist spot is, and he’d surely exclaim with gusto, “Destin!” Located in Florida, the city is called “the luckiest fishing village in the world because fishing is not just a sport or a hobby in this emerald coast; it is such a burning passion that angling is done all year round in this city.”

The Luckiest Fishing Village in the Whole Wide World!

Destin is a heavenly tourist destination because it offers the beauty of white sandy beaches, emerald-green waters, and easy fishing that does not even require anglers to be on a boat. Sport fishes may be caught off of the jetty and the pier. The best fishing months are between April and October, and you could readily hook a bunch of Pompano, King Mackerel, Cobia, Bonito, and Jack Crevalle fishes. All kinds of baits also work on Destin’s waters, so that live, frozen and even artificial ones could result to a great fishing adventure.

If you’re aiming for some inshore trolling, you’d have to fly in to Destin between March and November to experience sight fishing of huge preys like the hundred-pound Cobia, for example. You will get the thrill of first spotting the Cobia and then hooking it. The joy of wrestling it out of the waters will surely make you want to do sight casting over and over again!

Other favorite fishing activities include deep sea bottom fishing and offshore trolling. Fishing is a passion within Destin, and there are fleets of boats that are available to cater to your angling needs and wants, no matter how intricate they may be.
