'The Spur' (ofDesoto Canyon) is ~80mi. if that helps. I live in PCB & if ya'll have a boat to make a trip like that &need another crew member I'd be interested... I don't make it that far in my boat, but have been w/friends several times on trolling trips & swordfishing... It's actually a good bit closer out of Destin...

Do you know how much closer from destin it is? Were going to be in Laguna Beach/Carillon Beach if you know where that is. We don't have a big boat. A 22' with a single 150 but weve been out 35-40 miles before comfortable so if theres anything within that distance were gonna go for it.

You don't have enough boat (range) out of PCB for the Spur or Elbow. Check with Half Hitch for areas to try your luck, you have plenty of offshore opportunities out of PCB w/ your boats abilities. Good luck and give us a post.

From PCB the Nipple is 76.6 miles, the Elbow is 88.8 miles, the Spur is 76 miles, the dumping grounds are 66 miles. These distances are about double your comfortable trips one way. From Destin the nipple is 44.6 miles, the Elbow is 60 miles, the Spur is 59.3 miles, the dumping grounds are 32 miles. There is a lot of great fishing closer to PCB, might want to check it out.

I don't think PCB has alot of named areas for offhshore, but they enjoy better offhsore fishing than many expect. Half Hitch Destin provides a great chart out of Destin. I would assume Half Hitch PCB does the same thing. Florida Sportsman has a chart too. The 50 fathom curve is about 40 miles SE of PCB and there are alot of fish from 120' to 300.'
