Bottom Fishing Charter Experience with Xtreme Fishing Charters
While bottom fishing over deep wrecks, we will catch red snapper, amber jack, gag grouper, scamp grouper, vermillion snapper, cobia, triggerfish, and many other species of fish.
On good days, the moment your weight hits the bottom, you get ready to reel, because they are going to be biting on it. It is literally that fast! 2-3 seconds and you are reeling, fighting fish, and yelling “FISH ON”!
We also keep a fly line out with the most lively bait swimming free for those 50,60 even 70 lb. cobia to start spooling that reel for one heck of a fight. The free line will catch cobia, king fish, wahoo, mahi-mahi, barracuda, and even even sharks.
What To Expect On Your Destin Charter Bottom Fishing Experience
With our fleet of Destin charter fishing boats, your day will start out with action packed bait catching experience. We catch our bait with rod and reels first thing in the morning. We catch 4-6 baits at a time using sibiki rigs. We will spend about 45 minutes catching 75-100 live baits. With all the action we hope to have, this will be enough.
Also, catching bait is a blast for the kids. It is so action packed and happens so fast, they just love it. With a live-well full of live bait and the 50-75 cut baits we already have prepared for you, we will be set. We will take you to premium private numbers off shore to catch as many red snappers, amber jacks, groupers, and as many other species as your arms can handle.
Our private GPS coordinates have some of the best schooling fish you can drop down on. If you have to wait more than 45 seconds to get a bite, we need to move, because our spots are usually bountiful. Our job isn’t done until you can’t feel your arms anymore!
Trolling with Destin Charter Fishing
After leaving the reefs, many of our anglers troll an assortment of spoons. We run deep-running plugs, jigs, live baitfish, or fresh bait to entice mackerel, cobia, wahoo, mahi, tuna and other species. Some anglers maximize their time by trolling when transitioning from one reef to another. Trolling can also reveal an undiscovered secret honey hole. Trolling with deep-running plugs or downriggers can put big grouper or amberjack into the boat.
If we find a good rip or weed line, we’ll put out a trolling spread to see what’s there, We might find some king mackerel, blackfin tuna or get lucky and catch a wahoo. We’ll also keep an eye out for tripletail, cobia or mahi.
While trolling from spot to spot, also we watch for targets of opportunity. Cobia, mahi, and tripletail (also called blackfish), frequently drift with floating debris or hang around channel buoys and cruise weed lines. Sometimes we see diving birds that could indicate a school of predators chasing baitfish enticing us to investigate.
Despite stiff regulations and reduced limits for many species, anglers can still load a boat and enjoy a great day on the water if they remain flexible. We bring an assortment of rods and baits for any opportunity that may arise. You never know what might bite on the other end of that line! YOU BETTER BE READY!!!!!
