Re: Surf fishing near Destin Florida
If you get a rare windless day the 5wt will probably work but don't count on it. The 9wt will work fine. Be on the beach just before day break and cast right up against the beach. I have fished just west of there at Navarre. I did catch some lady fish and they were a lot of fun. I had my best luck on a Schminnow. White Marabou tail and a pearl estaz body with medium beadchain eyes on a 6 to 1 hook. A surf candy would work just as well I am sure. The fish quit about an hour after sunup but that is also when the swimmers came out. There is miles of unused beach just west of Navarre beach that should be good but I never got there but I will next time. I understand that there are some snook and reds in the surf too. I would also like to try for some pompano. Have fun.
