Default Need Help in Destin

I travel for work and me and some other guys are staying at a house on Destin Harbor thru March. We have caught some bluefish, but nothing else. We have seen several sheephead swimming around the boat dock at the bcak of the house, and huge schools of what appear to be catfish. What else can we expect to catch here? Any advice on landing those sheephead? Anything is appreciated by two rookie salt fisherman!

Thanks,
Derek

live shrimp or crabs for the sheep head with a really small hook. dont screw with the catfish. they taste like mud and can hurt you. also catch or buy some live pinfish and put them in the channle on the botttom for some big redfish. kinda slow until february though. best of luck. sheep head are fun though

those huge schools of catfish might just be mullet. are you seeing them in the daytime ? if so probably is mullet. It is still legal to snag them, great fight and the eat good if you fillet them and fry them same day.

If you can swing up to Niceville this Wednesday, we're having a seminar on trout fishing.

We have one every month at Northlight Marina, topic varies by month but we always aim for the third Wednesday.

-----

Luckily, there's no such thing as too cold for trout.

Wednesday, January 19, with the temperatures getting just right for a hot bite, the Emerald Coast Saltwater Seminar Series presented by The Ships Chandler and Half Hitch Tackle will focus on speckled trout fishing during the winter months.

Our hosts will give you the ins and outs of the when and where for one of Florida most sought after fish during one of the best months to catch them.

The seminar starts at 7 p.m. at Northlight Marina in Niceville with free food served at 6:30 p.m.

For more information, call Sonny at 384-7737 or e-mail Joe [email protected]
