Default Destin Pass

Hit the east jetty in the late morning to see what I could get into. It was pretty slow the first 45 minutes or so then the bonito moved in. Chucked a 1/2oz rattle trap out a few times and fish on. Never caught a bobo before and man it was fun, it made about 6 runs and took me 10 minutes to get it in the yak.

Nice. Looks like you had some good fishing conditions today.

I finally made myself one of those crates the other day; love that handle!

Tres the conditions were perfect, I find myself saying that a lot but it's true.

Oscar- The Destin bridge is about 3 minutes away from the put in point and depending on the currents and wind it takes anywhere from 10-25 minutes to the jetty, so you could hit both of them no problem. That was only the second time that I went to that area, the first time there were 3-4 ft swells, 8mph wind and big boats coming in the pass which made it not very fun, I left after about 10 minutes.

Today was my first time out with the new seat and it is comfortable, none of the wiggling around after 4 hours like normal. I need to make a few adjustments and I think it will be even better.

Sweet. Do you do pretty good in that area?

I haven't really fished the bridge but I know that guys do pretty well with the reds on a incoming or outgoing tide and today when I passed it there was a boat I saw yank up two sheepheads.

I think the jetty area is pretty productive from talking to people at the bait shop but only my second time there so not sure. I will say the first time I went out the 10 minutes I was there I saw tons of bait fish, birds diving and bonitos. I'm sure there are others here who know the area pretty good.

I am planning on going out there a lot more though after today's trip.

Nice photo. Thanks for the tip on the 1/2 ounce rattle trap you were using.

No problem. Not positive but the guys next to me who caught one looked like they were using a yo-zuri crystal minnow or something very similar.

Nice. Bobos can be fun. We caught several 30 inchers last year off of Destin.
