Welcome to fisherman's paradise! There is excellent fresh water and saltwater fishing in this area. You might even see some dolphins while you fish!
Topsail Hill Preserve offers freshwater and saltwater fishing
A fishing license and your favorite gear is all you need to fish in a pristine coastal dune lake. Catch bass, pan fish and freshwater catfish in these fresh water lakes. You can also catch saltwater fish - pompano, red fish, Spanish or king mackerel, more - on 3.2 miles of secluded beach.
Deep Sea fishing
Charter your own boat for a fantastic fishing adventure. There are several good charter services in the area. One of the closest is Lil' Lucky of Destin, located right here in Miramar Beach on Horseshoe Bayou.
Piers that are popular with people and dophins
Okaloosa Island Pier is a favorite with locals, tourists, and dolphins! It's a great place for dolphin viewing, and great place to catch big fish.
The pier extends way out into the water, offering access to pompano, sheepshead, squid, whiting, bonita, redfish, king mackerel and more. Check out their Facebook page for daily updates on what's being caught.
For the more adventurous, the Destin East Pass Jetties also offer good fishing and spectacular views. Be aware - the jetties are made of huge rocks, and there is no path on them. You can learn more about them on the Fishing Destin Guide website, which has detailed picture instructions about where to park and how to get to the jetties. Note: if you want to park close, get there before 8AM.
