From Iowa to Georgia, folks travel hundreds and even thousands of miles this week to fish with some of Destin’s finest boat captains.

A group from Texas loaded up on the Sweet William III with Capt. Bill Watson for a good catch of mingo, white snapper, king mackerel and bonito on Wednesday.

Iowa anglers on the Fish-N-Fool with Capt. Casey Weldon filled the nails with big mingo, lane snapper and a few bonito.

Capt. Eric Thrasher on the Game On took his group from Texas out for a good catch of king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, a pile of mingo and a couple of Key West porgy.

Atlanta anglers on the Un Reel with Capt. Justin Destin pulled in a king mackerel and several mingo on Wednesday.

Justin Sheen of Idaho was excited about the king mackerel that he and his buddy caught aboard the Sure Lure with Capt. Don Dineen. They also had a few mingo and a couple of Key West porgy.

Capt. Chris Couvillion on the Sea Winder and his group came in with mingo, white snapper, Key West porgy and bonito.

Kentucky anglers on the Lucky Lina with Capt. Steve Lathi pulled in king mackerel, mingo, bonito and a mahi mahi.

Texas and North Carolina anglers on the Stelluna with Capt. Judah Barbee had a big time on Wednesday. They brought in mingo, white snapper and bonito. However, the little guys were just as excited about the fish they had to cut loose. Apparently they hooked a cobia that was a little short and they saw a big tiger shark.

Anglers fishing aboard the Rewind with Capt. Reid Phillips brought in what he called a “variety pack.” They caught a cobia, a couple of king mackerel, mingo and a surprise flounder (the last fish of the day).

Capt. Gary Jarvis on the Backdown 2 and his group brought in some huge white snapper and a mahi mahi. First Mate Travis said they threw back a lot of amberjack on the six-hour trip.

King mackerel was the catch of the day aboard the Windwalker II with Capt. Bernie LeFebvre for the anglers from Atlanta, West Virginia and Oklahoma. They also had a couple of bonito on the board.

Arkansas anglers on the High Cotton with T. J. George filled the nails and then some with mingo, white snapper, lane snapper and bonito.

Kansas and Arkansas anglers on the Maximus with Capt. Justin Hall pulled in four cobia and a couple of barracuda on Wednesday.

Kentucky anglers on the Double Time with Capt. Tim Adams pulled in king mackerel and some big Spanish mackerel. They also broke off a rod on a big bull shark.

West Virginia anglers on the Kitchen Pass with Capt. Travis Ream filled the rack with mingo, white snapper and king mackerel. Word is they released amberjack, red snapper and triggerfish, which are all currently off the catch list.

Anglers on the Only Way with Capt. Curt Gwin backed in with four king mackerel, mingo and white snapper on Wednesday.

Dallas, Texas, anglers on the Outta Line with Capt. Trey Windes came in from an eight-hour trip with king mackerel, scamp and mingo.

St. Louis, Missouri, anglers on the Huntress with Capt. Mike Graef hauled in a cobia, king mackerel, some big mingo and a few bonito on Wednesday.

No matter how far the anglers traveled this week to fish out of Destin, I’m thinking none were disappointed and they all ate good.

See you at the docks.
