 "The Destin, Florida Fishing Report"

    Hi, I'm Captain David Dewberry.  I'm a 3rd generation gulf coast fisherman and have been fishing these waters for well over thirty five years.  I grew up commercial fishing and charter fishing.  In the late seventies and early eighties, my family could see that times were getting tougher for fishermen, so they encouraged me to find a more "profitable line of work".  In 1999 after some schoolin' and several years as a technical designer for Raytheon and Boeing, I decided to get back to my passion.  So, I bought a 25' boat and with a lot of hard work, wonderful customers, and some blessings from above I was off to a good start.  Since then,  my (defintely better half) wife Vera and I, have expanded our business to 9 boats (the largest slightly over 70') and a wonderful crew of more than twenty.  However, as long as I have been fishing, I still find that I can learn a new trick now and then. Along with the Destin, Florida fishing reports, I will add some tips and tricks that have helped me.  I hope it will help you catch more fish on your adventures.

Tight lines,
Captain David Dewberry

Big Grouper!

May 20, 2016

Big Grouper caught aboard the charter boat "Blessed Adventure".  Too Bad he was out of season.  But very fun catch and many other fish were caught on this trip including Jacks and Vermilions.

Cobia Mania!

April 20, 2016

Wow!  There were over twenty cobia caught yesterday.   Over all the boats that fished to the West did better than the ones to the East.  There were also some very nice Triggers and Snappers caught. This pic is from the charter boat "Good Times" with  Captain Mark and First Mate Dan.  Nice catch guys.

Awesome Amberjack bite.

April 14, 2016

The  Amberjack bite has been great!  However, its getting harder to catch a large Jack on the close up wrecks so you need to plan on a longer trip if you want to have a fair chance.  Mingos, Triggerfish, and white snapper continue to bite very well.

Check out this Amberjack video.

Kings are starting to show up.

Aprill 8, 2016

The water is warming up and turning the bite on for some pelagics.  We caught a few kings lately and have heard some other boats also catching some.  The bite for white snappers, mingo, and triggerfish continue to be good and getting better.  Have also heard of a few cobia being seen.

What a beautiful day!

April 5, 2016

Wow, what a nice day.  The boat caught hundreds of great tasty fish today.  The seas were nice and sunshine was welcomed after some days of rain.  Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
