Destin, Florida the World's Luckiest Fishing Village!
Destin has always been known as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village for years. Just the other day I was on a private charter with Jason Hallmark of the Vengeance for a 10 hour trip. Leaving the dock 6:30 AM can make for a long day but well worth the effort as you can see from this photo.
We were able to catch Amber Jack, Scamp Grouper, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Vermilion (Mingo) Snappers and Amberine. For those that do not know, the big one in the middle is a Blacktip Shark. We were also able to catch Red Snapper and Gag Grouper but since they were not in season we had to release them back unharmed.
A 10 hour trip will give you enough time to get out to the deeper water for the larger Amber Jacks and back….just be sure to bring enough food and water. The Amber Jack is a hard fighting fish that is relentless all the way to the surface so you will need something to drink and to eat while on the water.
You do not have to Be A Local in order to have fun like this. Just give Jason a call on the Vengeance and schedule your next fishing trip. Just be sure to plan ahead as his calendar can get full and you would not want to miss out on trip like this.
