May Fishing is Some of The Best

May fishing is some of the best

Well spring has sprung , Easter is  over and spring break is now a thing of the past. But the quiet month of May, just before the hordes of summer vacationers is one of the best times all year to visit and fish in Destin. Rates at hotels are still lower and the wait times in traffic or your favorite restaurant are even less. May fishing is also better due to less traffic on the water as well . Places aren’t pounded like they will be in June ,July and August and so when you drop a bait down on the bottom or troll on top water your more apt to get a big bite than not. Weather in May is also just right , usually light winds make for calm seas and it is hot enough to get in the water for a swim but not stifling hot where you feel like a melting stick of butter. Most of our inshore trolling species like King mackerel , bonito and spanish are in abundance ,and offshore fish like wahoo and dolphin start to show up. Further offshore the bite is on right now ! Especially big Yellow Fin Tuna fishing around  the oil rigs on our 2 & 3 day trips is now exceptional. So if you can break away. from the rat race , call us for a great day of fishing ( or 2-3 day overnight ) and lets go catch em up. Let’s Go Fishing!
