Professional and amateur anglers alike have been coming to South Walton’s sugar-white shores for over a century, because they truly offer some of the best sport fishing in the world.
Although the bustling harbors in Destin and Panama City Beach are better known for deep-sea fishing excursions (mainly because their harbors have direct access to the Gulf), that certainly doesn’t mean that you need to drive to either place to satiate your fishing fix.
In fact, every day, fishing charters depart directly from our sand at Grayton Beach, returning a few hours later with Grouper, Cobia, Wahoo, Red Snapper, King Mackerel, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Trigger Fish, Spanish Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi and other fresh treasures.
From the beach, you can catch Pompano (if you know how to catch sand fleas… or if you know Pompano Jim), and South Walton’s Choctawhatchee Bay is filled with Redfish, Flounder and the silvery Speckled Trout.
Or, get a cast-net like the true old school locals and have an old-fashioned mullet-fry. Hey, don’t knock it ’til you fried it, folks.
