I lost a great friend in December doing exactly what your wanting to do with your jon boat going gigging at night trying to cross the bay.
Be careful out there.

I don't know the Destin area well and most guys aren't going to tell you "where to go", i.e. not giving up our honey holes but if you are going to be here in the summer it is really just a matter of picking a stretch of beach with the right conditions (wind, clarity, depth, structures, etc.) you want to work and getting to it...no guarantees in floundering either, one of those things of if you find a beach with fish you'll get some, if you don't you won't!

I will say they seem to bed up more often around piers and structures in the summer, can't say why but that may be something to consider when you get started...just have to go to know really!

And as mentioned before, be careful and take every safety precaution you should...the waters here are beautifully deceiving and turns into a violent beast with a sudden shift of the winds...even the most tranquil night of fishing can go terribly wrong if you aren't prepared and using the right equipment..and even when you are bad things still happen...

Fortunately there is a great community of fishermen and women here willing to share their knowledge and experiences. Good luck and welcome to the forum!
