I visit the Destin location every time I'm in Destin (about dozen times so far). I've repeatedly heard this is the place to go, but so far their service has not been that great; it's not bad, either (just average). This may be partly because I go there on holiday weekends.

Well I cant really say about much about the Navarre location but I have always had really good service at the Destin store. Tim the manager is very knowledgeable and has always been very friendly, Jessie is very good also, especially for a girl, she really knows quite a bit, I think it may be because her dad runs a charter boat. The last time I had a problem with a Shimano rod Tim just switched me out for a new one. I had broke a few inches off the tip while catching spanish, I did not have a receipt and just knew it was going to be a problem but I went in told my story and in a few minutes I was leaving with new rod in hand.
Oh and by the way as for prices for the most part I have found better prices at Half Hitch than at Bass Pro or Walmart. Last week bought a pier cart it was $189.99 at the Destin store and $229.99 at Walmart.

Half Hitch in Navarre
I know this is an old thread, but I am going to put my 2 cents in anyway. I have visited the half hitch in Navarre for the past four years. In May and September. This past May was the last straw for me. There are usually a couple older guys in there that are really Nice, but this past May, Some guy that looked to be in his forty's with dark hair was just a Dick. All I wanted was some Mullet and he proceeded to go on that since a Mako Shark was caught there, everybody was buying up all the bait and Blah,Blah,Blah!
He told me to come back around in the evening. I was on my way to Pensacola to fish, Dumb Ass! I think their stuff is way overpriced and a bait shop that has no bait with an Asshole behind the counter! I bit my tongue, and walked out the door before I taught this A hole a lesson. I wanted to go fishing and not to jail. I will never be back! Half Hitch. You can Suck it! I mean that!

never been to any other than the one in Destin. only liked two people in there. the young kid that I think started last summer and an older gentlemen who seemed to not be around much, but when he was, was super helpful and fun to be around.
the others either knew next to nothing about what was being sold or thought they knew everything and I was actually told I wouldn't be successful targeting certain fish a certain way. truth be told, I was.
also after spending about 10 mins comparing tackled bags in one isle and over hearing a sales rep for lures and the person in charge of buying products talking about the ones that "catch customers" and which colors to stock that will "catch more customers" I pretty much gave up on making sense of the products on the shelf.
they do have a good selection on X raps though. could always count on that.
Fort Walton could use a Broxons or GBB equivalent.
