has been a long favorite of fishermen for years. Offshore fishing is excellent with close access to deep water in the Gulf of Mexico. It's also the best place in Florida to catch a big blue marlin. Dolphin (mahi-mahi), wahoo and sailfish are also caught here during late spring and summer. If you'd like to charter a boat to do some fishing in the Gulf, you'll appreciate the fact that the 100 Fathom Curve is closer to Destin than any other spot in Florida, making it the fastest way to get to the deep waters in the Gulf.
