Fishing Guides in Destin, Week of August 13th:

"Red Snapper season closed on August 1st, so we are now targeting the tasty Vermillion snapper, in place of Red Snapper. We have caught some nice fish lately, aboard teh Full Draw. We jumped off a couple Sailfish and caught this on our third opportunity. The Golden Eye Snapper was a real treat for us, since it is so rare in this part of the world. The Wahoos are still around and have been biting and always are great bonus fish when we catch one." -Captain Brantley
