Default Fishing between Ft Waton and Destin

Basically I just bought a boat last week it's an 18 ft seafox bay boat.
I will be in Ft Walton next week for the whole week and I'm just looking for advise. I am open to going to Destin to the pass I just want to get on some fish,I'm not asking for anybody honey holes just some general guidance on where to go and what to fish with. I'm fairly new to this by boat caught a few from a dock but that's about it.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Roper 1108, I too will be there with my boat (18' tunnel hull Kenner) the same week. I've only fished off the pier and bridges around there. I look forward to some seasoned responses. Do you have electronics on board?

Where do you intend to launch? Fish from the Coast Guard Station north - throw top water (Heddon Spooks) lures toward the bank and soft plastics in that 12' channel for Reds. Fish EARLY before sunup. At sun up, using a sibiki rig, pick up some Threadfin Herring around the Destin Bridge, run straight out the pass for 3-miles and drift fish those Threadfins on the bottom.

What is a sibiki rig?

I have been using a spook but have had no luck. I have mainly been trying in the narrows or other grass flats in the bay. Other than the coast guard station where is good for them (and I mean general habitat as in structure, depth, grass, etc.)?

Also, I am not familiar with wrapping wire for kings. I have caught spanish in the past and it was a blast. I would any tips on getting them on a hook.

thanks

A sibiki rig is used for catching live bait. It's a line about 6' long with about 8 small hooks. Toss it into schooling bait fish and jiggle. They're
sold everywhere including Wal-Mart...

Several of these are just a few miles to the east of the pass. Should be some good fishing on them.
