Fantastic Fishing in Destin: Bass 2 Billfish


On this episode of Bass 2 Billfish, host Peter Miller flies into Panama Beach Airport in northwest Florida with his camera crew. Peter first stops at the Destin, FL Bass Pro Shops, and buys some items for his buddy Madison and himself. Peter also interviews some of the employees at the store and got their take on the oil, fishing and fashion. Later that evening, Peter meets up with his friend Madison Roberts and their guide Sid Little at the Emerald Grand Resort in Destin. They discuss their upcoming trout fishing trip scheduled for the next morning, have dinner and call it a night.

On day 2, Peter and Madison meet up with their guide, Sid, and Peter decides to throw the cast net on some live bait, which will be used to live chum for sea trout. They go on to catch at least one dozen trout up to 23 inches while having an interesting discussion about the fishery in Destin and how the oil could effect them. They observe no oil on site and fishing all around ends up being great! On the way back to the resort they stop at one more spot and end up catching some gag grouper for good measure before calling it a day.

The next morning, Peter and Madison meet up with the Relentless Charter boat, run by Captain Brant Kelly to take a look offshore for some Red Snapper and whatever else they can find. Peter interviews the captain and obtains some great information about the fishery. They catch scores of gorgeous red snapper, cobia and gag grouper. It ends up being one of Peter's best fishing experiences of all time! His arms are sore and they end the day with Peter and Madison grilling up some red snapper at the Emerald Grand Hotel for the entire crew.
