Default Inshore Shark Fishing Destin?

Can anyone give me any insight on shark fishing inshore around Destin? The gulf is just too rough for me to get out this week. I was thinking about anchoring up in the pass at night and soaking bait. Any suggestions?

Please don't anchor in the pass.

Let me clarify -

By anchor, I mean beaching my boat on the west side and fishing from there casting out into the pass.

About half way from bridge to jetty rocks there is a marker about 30 yards (?) from the beach. There is rubble of some kind all around that marker. When I was able to walk we would cast out 100 yards either side of that marker to keep from getting caught up and broken off. I've lost a few "large" fish due to that marker. But caught a lot of fish from that beach. Tide currents can be heavy along there. Good luck.

Just FYI, if you stay there passed sundown, you will be trespassing. Found out from the police as I was dragging my yak back to the car Saturday night.

Forget that, park on the East side and soak a bait. You can anchor up close to shore just like the snorkel boats do and be ready to chase one down.

Personally I've had more luck around Mid-Bay, we lost 2 there last Wednesday.
