Bay Fishing Destin, Florida

Destin is known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” and whether it is inshore fishing along the Choctawhatchee Bay, fishing by land on the beach or pier, or offshore deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico – the Emerald Coast is full of great fishing! Inshore fishing is always calmer waters and less travel time to the fishing spots. Popular inshore fishing destinations are located up in the bayous of the Choctawhatchee Bay, in the marshes by the shoreline and near the Destin (Marler) bridge and in the Destin Harbor.

Pelican Adventures on the Destin Harbor offers inshore/ bay fishing charters all year long aboard ‘Just Right’. Fun and safe for all ages and a great introduction to fishing in general! Pelican Adventures is family owned and operating our 20th year fishing the coast. Inshore trips include fishing license, fishing rod and reel, live bait and the Captain will clean and bag your fish to take home for dinner.

Book your private fishing charter for a fun day on the water! Recently, Pelican Adventures chartered two inshore trips in the same week for a couple traveling in Destin on vacation. Winter is a slower season for fishing as they aren’t eating as much with cooler temps but we managed to catch multiple species including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Snapper and Flounder!

Private inshore fishing trips start at $500 for 4-hour charter, up to 4 adults. Interested in offshore fishing? Pelican Adventures has you covered with private deep sea fishing charters available with several different boat options available as well as per person on our shared charter and party-boat fishing.
