    Destin/Ft Walton- looking for some advice

    So, thanks for all he direction for my trip down to Destin. Had prepared to fish both inside and outside, but we had so much fun heading offshore that we did it all three days. It was hit or miss with the numbers we tried but we did find several great spots on the artificial reefs south and southeast of East Pass. It was crazy that both the close in spots (5-6 miles and 60 ft)as well as many of the deeper spots (20+ and 100 ft) produced similarly well. It was lots of fat red snapper (couldn’t keep), some legal vermillion snapper, small amberjack and lots of trigger fish. Not a grouper to be found… Was using frozen squid and cigar minnows mostly, but did sabiki some live bait outside the pass. Both caught fish. That said, we caught a small live grunt and immediately sent back down…. That resulted in a hook up that could not be stopped. 50lb test screaming off an older Penn reel. Not sure if it was a larger grouper, amberjack or other toothy critter before it broke off several minutes later. The cherry on top was the Mahi that followed in a snapper at the end of day 3 in 110 feet of water. I did take Limitless’s advice, though the only castable rod was a small bucktail on my trout rod. Lure hit the water, and the hook up was immediate. Light rod, fast runs, and a great aerial display. Also, dinner!

    Destin/Ft Walton- looking for some advice

    Thanks, Limitless! Very helpful. I’ve got my pinfish trap ready to go…. Just need to find some grass to put it next too. And for the moderator, pic below:
  4. I am heading down too Destin for a long Labor Day weekend with the PF and several friends. Excited to have a spot where I can dock the boat up behind where I’m staying. Have never fished the area, but am ready to see what damage we can do. I am willing and equipped to fish water from the flats out to the reefs 20+miles out (weather permitting). Not looking for secret spots, but can anyone provide some advice or direction on what I should be targeting? What’s the best focus for our time in your opinion? Thanks for any advice volunteered!

    Radar on 2600 TRS Second Station

    Thanks! Roof slides back and becomes the seat for the stand-through. Two rear facing rod holders on top do have enough room even with the radar placement…. I don’t use them much though as they are a bit out of the way.

    T top rod holders

    TNT Custom Boatworks out of Fort Pierce builds much (maybe all?) of PF’s TTops, and they might be able to help you depending on what you are looking for. They were able to help me with kingfish rod holders powder coated to match.

    2600 TRS bucket storage

    Hey 2600 TRS owners: how are you securing or stowing your 5 gallon buckets and cast nets? I’m a new owner and am still getting organized... compartments are shallow and my 5 gallon buckets are don’t fit well. I’m thinking may need to switch to 3 gallon sizes. What are you all using?

    2600 TRS tackle station

    That is awesome. I had been toying with getting the optional table added to my 2600 with a thought to having something like this as a secondary use for the mount. Great work!
