Blue Marlin Fishing in Destin

(Makaira nigricans)

If you’re looking for one of the best Billfish spots in the Gulf of Mexico, then Marlin fishing in Destin, Florida is something to be witnessed. This is one of the best places to go after these majestic beasts because it’s much closer to the Gulf’s bluewater than other fishing hubs.
 
Marlin (Blue and White) visit these waters in the heat of the summer, but the best time to catch something formidable is in September and October. White Marlin are particularly active during the fall, while Blues love higher temperatures.
 
On a good day, you can have anywhere from a couple hookups to 10, if you know where to go and you’ve got an experienced captain at the helm. The bite can start 12 miles from the shore, at the famous "100-Fathom Curve", and it only gets better the further you go. Blue Marlin love the open deep waters (600+ feet), and this is where you can hook a big one.
 
To get the most out of the Marlin-oriented trip, opt-in for the ones that last eight hours or more. You might need to travel 20–40 nautical miles from shore to get to the most productive hotspots, so you want to have plenty of time for everything (including the ride to and from the fishing grounds). Charter companies often offer multi-day trips, that can take out up to 150 miles offshore and put you on the intense Billfish action that will challenge you in every way.
 
You'll mostly be trolling with live bait to get the attention of voracious Marlin, though there’s a variety of lures you can use as well. When one is hooked, you’ll know it straight away – their acrobatic jumps are all the announcement you’ll need. Getting these gigantic fish (especially Blue Marlin, that can weigh anywhere from 200–900+ pounds) to the boat is a workout like no other and it’s not for the weak-kneed.
 
Marlin fishing in Destin, Florida is deep sea fishing at its best and the sheer number of anglers pouring into Destin every day is proof enough. If catching Marlin is on your bucket list, then this is the place to be!

Be sure to bring a long sleeve shirt if fishing in the morning. Even when it is warm out the boat ride out can get a little cold.

The fishing here was excellent. Calm water and endless bites. Great for family or those that enjoy reeling in the fish. We didn’t troll today, our preference was for everyone to catch many fish. We caught our limit!

This year in September it was over 90 degrees everyday so far. So dress and protect accordingly. You have to learn how to fish this area if you don't know gulf fishing/salt water fishing. I look forward to next trip to Destin and trying my luck again.

The first thing is to learn is that you have to learn Destin. You may not kill it the first time. You need seasonal clothing and food/refreshments. Warm months require covering and hydration. Right tackle, etc.

Listen and learn, every trip out is an adventure. The fish may not always cooperate, but the scenery is spectacular and and the Captains I've fished with over the years have always made the trips fun and memorable...

Yes fishing with my 8 year old grandson who pulled in the largest Snapper was a life long memory maker. His father brought a 6 foot shark up the the boat which was an added bonus!

Our Captain took us out approximately 20 miles to provide the best spots for great red snapper. It was great. Our group caught some beautiful reds. We did have some issue with sharks taking our catch but we still managed a nice catch. The weather was challenging but the Captain kept watch and kept us moving. It was a great trip!

Destin is considered the best fishing village on the planet. Look it up. Just make sure your targeted fish is in season while you visit.
