Thursday, November 24, 2005


today is turkey day and the weather has been good to us today. it is warm for this time of year though we do have a gusty west wind which is making the water choppy. it is too early to tell if the water clarity is affected.

yesterdays catch was a patriotic day with red whiting blue and a couple of pompano thrown in for good measure.

after eating turkey come out to the pier to work off some of that stuffing and try your luck.

again not much caught just a few skipjack and spanish were reported

our winter hours have already started we are now open from 6am to 10 pm daily

Monday, October 03, 2005


Looks the same as yesterday..we have a strong east wind, waves from the southeast and riled up water

just a few whiting and hardtails again reported yesterday

Sunday, October 02, 2005

churned up

usually when we have a north east wind the seas lay down....not today the will is brisk, and the seas are riled up...waves coming out of the southeast again...the water appears to be clean but wave action affected the visibility

the only reported catches yesterday were hardtails, and whiting

Saturday, October 01, 2005


Today starts the annual destin fishing rodeo...everyone fishing from this pier is eligible to enter their catch in the rodeo...there is no entry fee

Friday, September 30, 2005

clear again

We still have a northish wind not very strong, calm seas and once again very clear water

not many fish caught yesterday but they did get a few reds, spanish, hardtails, skipjack, and pompano

temp susposed to drop tonight come out and see what that does for the fishing

Thursday, September 29, 2005

calming down

the water has calmed down since yesterday....we have a southeast wind not to strong, so so waves and the clarity is still up in the air it doesnt have the muddy look of storms past just not to clear

yesterdays catch included a couple of big reds, a few spanish, the ever present hardtails and skipjack a some pompano

with cool temps on the way the weekend is looking also remember the destin fishing roder starts 1 oct and everyone who fishes off the pier is elibible to enter their catch in the pier, bridge, and surf catagory good luck to all

Wednesday, September 28, 2005


water conditions have changed again...back to rough waves coming in from the southeast and the wind out of the northeast has the water stirred up...clarity does not look very good right now, but yesterday on low tide visibility greatly improved and you could see where the sand bars had moved...should be able to keep a bait in the water near the end of the pier

yesterdays catch showed that the fish are coming back here

while not many of any one we have several different species reds (biggies), spanish, hardtails, skipjack, trigger, pompano and a lone jack

Tuesday, September 27, 2005

better today

The sea conditions have greatly improved over yesterday...not much wave action and small swells...wind is out of the north ...water is still silted up but appears to be fairly clean

most of yesterdays catch was hardtails and skipjack with a few spanish and over size reds

weekend will be okay for fishing and could ever be okay for catching

Monday, September 26, 2005

no rita not much change

We finally got a fishing report..some lucky angler caught a red yesterday

already today we have heard of another red, a couple skipjack and a few hardtails.

not much but better then the last few days

water conditions have not changed still have a strong south wind, high seas and dirty some rain is in the picture as well..

some beach erosion has taken place really hard to determine just how much until the seas calm down...this will also change the sandbars..can only hope for better conditions

Sunday, September 25, 2005


the good news is rita is on shore and didn't do athe amount ofdamage that was perdicted.

locally thte conditions are unchanged still high seas strong wind and dirty water

once again no reported catches

conditions shold start to improve now

Saturday, September 24, 2005



the good news is it wasn't as bad as predicted...ritas on land now and things should start to settle down

again the conditions are what you would expect...high seas, strong south wind and dirty water

no fish were reported caught yesterday

Friday, September 23, 2005


Nothing good to report today...the surf is still high with a very strong current...the water is all messed up and the wind is out of the south east which would be great for fishing if everything else was okay... again if you can keep a bait in the water something might come along

not many trying to fish yesterday and no reported results.

rita susposed to hit land tomorrow so conditions should clear up late saturday or sunday

Thursday, September 22, 2005


With a cat 5 in the gulf anywhere it is going to effect we have a strong east wind, high seas and very silted water

yesterdays catch included a few reds, bules whiting and the skipjack and hardtails

if you could keep a bait in the water something might be out there to eat it

Wednesday, September 21, 2005


Rita is in the gulf and has changed the we have a nice south wind and good waves...the water is a little silted but looks clean

yesterdays catch was nothing to brag about... just a few skipjacks, hardtails, blues, and reds

if the storm stays on the present track, it could drive the fish into our area..will just have to wait and see

Tuesday, September 20, 2005

usual suspects

no great changes today..still crystal clear water very light north wind and calm seas

yesterdays catch was down just the usual suspects hardtails, whiting, blues, and skipjack

Monday, September 19, 2005

patriotic day

Again the water is back to very clear..hardly any wind or waves

Sunday, September 18, 2005

slow saturday

The weather is about the same...we have a slight northwest very light breeze, small swells and the water while not crystal is clear there is some slit inplaces

nothing to brag about in yesterdays catch...just heard of some spanish, whiting and hardtails...of course there is always the possibility that others were caught and not reported

Saturday, September 17, 2005


The water cleared up agin over night..back to the usual crystal clear condition...we have a slight northwest wind and small waves

yesterday the highlight was a couple of kings, along with the spanish, whiting, a pompano, blues and the hardtails and skipjack

Friday, September 16, 2005

late post

Not much change in the weather....wind still out of the west with medium waves and swels...the clarity of the water is a bit down today...further out on the pier its very clear but kinda murky next to the beach

yesterdays catch dropped a bit also...the got some spanish, blues, whiting and the usual hardtails and skipjack

with the storm off the carolinas moving out , it could bring us a more south or southeast wind which as you know will greatly improve fishing conditions

Thursday, September 15, 2005


We still have a west wind not very hard, small waves and clear water

yesterdays catch included a couple of kings, some nice spanish runs, there there when there there and not when there not, whiting scattered, couple pompano, blues, and the usual skipjacks and hardtails, also got a few bonito

not a bad days fishing, as temps cool down fishing should pick up

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

Yesterdays catch included a flipper eaten king, some spanish, whiting and the hardtails

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

Got a couple of kings yesterday along with some spanish , whiting and the usual hardtails...

Monday, September 12, 2005

another good day

Today we have clear skies, an east wind, light chop and clear water

Yesterdays catch included a couple of schoolie kings, few pompano, whiting, reds, spanish, and of course skipjack and hardtails

Sunday, September 11, 2005

yesterdays highlight was a 25-30# King there were also a few smaller one caught...along with the kings a few spanish, pompano, sheepshead and reds were hooked...and as usual a whole bunch of skipjack and hardtails

they have already caught a few schoolie kings today

Saturday, September 10, 2005


Today we have a northeast wind not very hard, small waves and crystal lear water

there are baits around the pier

yesterdays catch was a mixed bag of the usual suspects some spanish, hardtails, skipjack, whiting, pompano, a legal red, and blues

its a nice day on the beach come on out and have fun

Friday, September 09, 2005

small but plentiful

We still have an east wind very small waves and once again crystal clear water...temp is 84...

no big fish reported but the people did do good on a mixed bag of spanish, hardtails, skipjack, whiting and a few pompano....also cooler size catch of yellowtails

its hard to predict what the weekend will be like after one cane and another over on the east coast, your best bet is to come and see what happens

Thursday, September 08, 2005

picking up

Today we have a brisk east wind and nice waves....the water where it is clean is very clear and where it is dirty its still clear but silted..

yesterday again the usual suspects but a few more of them

whiting, skipjack, hardtails, spanish, and blues...

Wednesday, September 07, 2005

bit dirty

We have a northest wind nice waes and swells, but it is can see the patch work between clean and dirty...

some bait is still around

yesterdays catch included the usual suspects hardtails, skipjack, a good run of spanish and some whiting right in the surf

Tuesday, September 06, 2005

still fish here

Today we have a north wind that cools the temperature down, and nice waves..visibility is still good some bait is hanging around

yesterday;s catch highlight was a 35 pound king they also caught a few smaller ones....along with a good catch of spanish the ever present hardtails and skipjack and some whiting up in the surf

Monday, September 05, 2005

kings again

The conditions are almost ideal for kings...we have a good east wind some nice waves and clear water rumor has it that today someone got a #35er...there were also a few other smaller ones caught today

yesterdays report looked kinda incomplete only whiting hardtail and skipjack on the board, but i would be willing to bet other species were caught

Sunday, September 04, 2005

the fish are back

Again the water is very clear no problems seeing fish

today we have a slight east wind and small waves

except for the hardtails all other catch were either just a few and scatter throughout the day

skipjack, blues, hardtails, whiting, spanish, flounder, pompano, and bonito

things are looking up now

Saturday, September 03, 2005

normal again

conditions are back to where they were before the storm.....the water is clear, calm, and very little wind...

some bait is returning to the area...

while ishing has not be great at least they are getting a few and hopefully more will show up

yesterdays catch as usual was loaded with hardtails, others included alot of skipjack, blues spanish and whiting

Friday, September 02, 2005


fishing conditions are getting better by the hour....water is still clearing up while no crystal clear it is easy to make out the bars and troughs....waves are down to just a foot or so and wind very light out of the north...

yesterday they caught a few hardtails, skipjack, and blues....some bait is starting to show up

conditions should be pierfect for the week end

Thursday, September 01, 2005


It finally looks that the gulf is once again capable of being fished.....the water while not crystal clear is clean...wind has died down and we currently have a slight breeze out of the north....the seas ad flattening out and just have some small swells and waves

now we just need people out here to see what kinda fish there are

Wednesday, August 31, 2005


While fishing conditions are improving, the water is still dirty the wind still strong and the waves high

the waves and wind are ideal for mackeral fishing....don't know how the dirty water will effect it

also this is the first time since 69 that a storm of this size has been in the had to have some effect on the fishing...

just need some people out there to give it a try and see what happens

Tuesday, August 30, 2005

Tim's cuda Posted by Picasa


Storm is over, and we survived again...pier is open...conditions are not to good for fishing..we still have a strong wind high, surf and dirty water... some major beach erosion will settle down and we can see what happens

Sunday, August 28, 2005


Katrina is heading for the big easy, but we can still see her effects the wind is getting strong out of the east...waves are large and surf is up big time.

we will stay open unless the sheriff shuts us down

yesterday when the seas were not so high they had a good days fishing

the usual hardtails, skipjack, a few spanish, whiting, blues, reds, and a couple of kings

no predictions for today...

Saturday, August 27, 2005


We have the wind and waves, but haven't heard to much about the fish yet.

Even with the north wind we have decent waves, no visible grass and very clear water.

so far today they have caught a few of the usual suspects nothing to brag about yet

yesterdays catch included a couple of kings, a cuda, hardtails, skipjack spanish, and whiting

the storm track keeps moving west out of our area..the lastest we saw indicated ms- la boarder.

if nothing changes we will remain open

Friday, August 26, 2005


not wrestling...wind, waves ,and fish

Finally getting some wind...todays is brisk southeast breeze and some waves...not any grass to be seen and the visibility is still excellent

The fish are starting to show up not in great numbers but we have had a few KINGS this morning if the breeze holds up I think we can expect a great weekend of fishing. just need to have the wind and waves continue to push the fish this way

yesterday they caught the usual suspects spanish, hardtails, whiting, skipjack, and blues

Thursday, August 25, 2005


still august still slow...

today we have an east wind small waves clear water and some small patches of grass

except for hardtails everything is slow and spotty

other catches included black snapper, spanish, reds, blues, and the every popular skipjack

if this storm gets into the gulf and near us it could help the fishing

Wednesday, August 24, 2005


Still not many changes...

today we have an east wind very light, the water is still clear and not much grass today..the waves are still small

nothing to lie about on yesterdays catch just a few spanish and alot of hardtails

so far today the catch is scattered black snapper, spanish, reds, blues, and the ever present hardtails

sept and cooler weather will get here and fishing will pick up

Tuesday, August 23, 2005

small change

Today we have a slight north wind and the grass is closer to the beach...thats the change

the fishing is still slow but normal for this time of the year catching just a few black snapper, spanish, blues, hardtails remain your best bet

Monday, August 22, 2005

no changes

weather the same hot and no wind..

the fishing could be alot better just a few spanish, reds, blues,and black snapper.

still all the hardtails you want ,b ut they are e ven getting spotty

the blog could be late the next few days, our computer is sick and posting is being done from off site

Sunday, August 21, 2005

still the same

weather still the same no wind or waves, hot, clear water and scatter clumps of grass

fishing is still slow, some small minnows are around the pier, but the larger fish have gone to deeper water to cool down.

they did manage to catch some blues, reds, spanish, skipjack, and hardtails

Saturday, August 20, 2005


the trend continues...hardtails and skipjack are plentiful...everything else is hit or miss.... also reported were a few reds, and blues....I think sme spanish could also have been caught but not reported...again expect for the hardtails everything else is very spotty change there no wind no waves patches of grass and excellent visibility

cooler weather is coming

Friday, August 19, 2005


Just like the weatherman, I could write one report and use it the entire month unless something spectatular happens...

fishing remains august slow a few spanish, blues, and reds, plus again all the skipjack and hardtails you want

again weather conditions the same a limp flag, tiny waves clear water and patches of grass

lookinh out the window, i just saw a nice sheepshead within 3 feet of the beach

Thursday, August 18, 2005

weather the same

No changes in the weathe still calm to very light south winds...very small waves, patch of grass and perfect visibility

it's dying time for the alewives and the pier looks like their burial ground...

yesterdays catch had a tarpon hook up 1-2 kings, a few spanish..some blues and all the skipjack and hardtails you wanted

Wednesday, August 17, 2005


Thanks for informing us that comments about this blog were being made on a web site other then the okaloosaislandpier one. We will in the future try and address those issues.

Pictures. Would love to post them, however have not received any from the fisher folks. Any one who sends a picture to us at will have it published if the size permits.

Except for the hardtails and skipjack fishing has been usualaugust fair that is slow. Until the water cools down some or thetarpon show up you can expect it to remain that way. With that said there will always be the day when fish show up in great numbers and the people limit out. Just wish we could perdict when that will happen. Remember yesterdays catch does not always reflect what will happen today or tomorrow. At ths time of the year, the best bet is a good southeast wind and overcast skies.

There have been schools of bait hanging around the pier lately. they want to get under the pier and in the shade. Most of they are alewies, but cigar minnors are here also in lesser numbers. You should be able to can some on either gold hooks or bait rigs.

Yesterdays catch included, a few black snapper (live or fresh shrimp the best bet), spanish still being taken or bullble and gotcha's, skipjack on just about anything, reds missows the best bet and of course hardtails using larger bait rigs either #6 or #4 or some cut bait.

It the past I did not want to make suggestions on what to use to catch different species, since many anglers know much more then i do. Also did not want to waste your time with excess verbage.

If you the readers want i will expand this blog to cover those point brought up

Again thanks for the feedback

yesterdays catch included spanish, reds, and hardtails

Sunday, May 01, 2005

Bye Bye April

May is here and right now it doesn't look much better....yesterday's horrible conditions severely cut down on the number of fishermen and the only reported catches were spanish and hard tails. Right now we have a cold north wind but is susposed to shift to the southeast sometime today. When this happens and if the water clears up fishing will improve

FYI this April produced the most rain ever recorded in a 30 day period ever. its gotta change sometime

Saturday, April 30, 2005

Wednesday, April 27, 2005

no fish were reported yesterday but already today they have got spanish, pompano and blues

Tuesday, April 26, 2005

April showers bring May fish

This has been the wettest april on record. The 2 plus inches last night did just what you would expect to the water...its dirty again southern wind pushing high surf...if the rain stops or you dont mind getting wet....conditions are okay for mackeral and using live bait for cobia, but sight fishing would be very hard

yesterdays catch included spanish, blues and pompano

Monday, April 25, 2005

Got Another one

Saturday, April 23, 2005

yesterdays catch included spanish, king, sheepshead, reds, blues, and still mre pompano

a tide line should come through and with this north wind improve water conditions for this afternoon and sunday

Friday, April 22, 2005

clear water

This is the clearest the water has been in a good while...hardly any breeze and the small waves are coming from the southeast...this all adds up to perfect cobia conditions....

if you have signed up for the cobia tourney and have not got your tee shirt, just stop by and pick it up

remember the tourney pays 3 places...I am sure that there will be more money fish caugth before it is over...if your not in it you can sign up now

yesterdays catch included spanish were seeing some good runs of these gotcha plugs working the best, blues, pompano this is the longest streak of catches in a good while ...big reds, sheepshead and kings

the world pier cobia tourney has received their tee shirts...they do have extras and are selling them for $15.00 come in and check them out all funds go to the cobia tourney organizers

Saturday, April 16, 2005

Never the same

Weekend is here and of course the water has changed...The good news is that we have a perfect east southeast wind and current...this always pushes the fish in to us.....the so so news is that after a day of clearing today while visible the water has a slight tint..with good sunglasses you can still see the fish it hust looks ugly

yesterdays catch included the one cobia, blues, pompano, and spanish...seems like pompano have been caught every day

we stock some excellent artifical baits for pompano included soft mold sand fleas

Friday, April 15, 2005

I can see the bottom

Clear water just in time for the weekend...if we don't have any major storms the seas wil be perfect for fishing can already see the bottom close in and it is clear all the way to the end....

the other biggie for today is already one cobia has been landed....the secret weapon in this case was a gotcha plug

yesterdays catch included spanish, blues, reds , and pompano

remember we are open 24 hours now so come early and stay late

Thursday, April 14, 2005

Still Dirty

When you look at the water you wonder how we got the nickname emerald coast....the water is still dirty but calm and cleaning up a bit...

yesterdays catch included spanish, blues, and whitings

temp is coming up and at elast we have sun shine

should be cleared up by weekend

dont forget the cobia tourney

Wednesday, April 13, 2005

Weatherman perdicts no rain for the next week..hope he's right. the seas have calmed down we have medium swells...still dirty but clearing up ...if we get a good tide line it could clear up in a day or two

Web Site Counter


Tuesday, April 12, 2005

more rain

another storm more dirty water, seems like thats the story of April so far this year...the sun is trying to peek out and should be in and out most of the day...the southeast wind will help push in any fish out there

yesterdays catch included spanish and blues

Monday, April 11, 2005

Big Mac Attack

Yesterday's rumor was true the first king mackrel was caught. The catch also included pompano, spanish, skipjack, and blues.

Temperature is rising and fishing is picking up. it will only get better from here on out if the water cooperates.

Todays water conditions are yucky..dirty water..on the good side have a nice south east wind..not much hope for cobia today but other species will be available to take a bait

if you have any photos that would be of interest to others e mail them to and i will put them up for all to see

Sunday, April 10, 2005


As this is being typed the rummor is that someone has a large king on at the end of the pier.
this would be the first one of the year and worth a free years pass to whoever is the lucky angler, if they land it. Tune in tomorrow for updates.

The water has a little tint in it but still can see the fish.. temp is good and we have a nice southeast current the best kind for fishing.

Yesterdays catch included spanish, skipjack, blues, sheepshead and pompano

things are looking up come on out and enjoy a day of fishing

Saturday, April 09, 2005

yesterdays catch included spanish, big reds, bules, sheepshead and pompano

it should be a great week end for fishing come on out and enjoy a day in the sunshine

Friday, April 08, 2005

so so

After yesterdays terrible conditions it's susprising that the catch included pompano, spanish, and sheepshead.

conditions are better today, still not good but better looks like some clean water off the end, so hopefully we will be good by the week end

today is the last day to get a reduction in fees for the cobia tourney todays cost is $35 after today the price jumps to $50 still a good bet for a $1000 prize

Thursday, April 07, 2005

Monday, March 28, 2005


Jay Riordan, caught the first cobia off the pier this year. It was a nice one going 35 lbs. Jay gets the bragging rights and free pass for a year.

The water is rough today big waves and a west wind. it is also kinda of dirty the temp is steady at 64

Now that the first one has been caught, you know others are out there. Come on out and show your stuff

Today could be the day

After last nights storms, the water still looks clear enough to see the fish...temp is still 64 will large waves and swells.

They have already seen a cobia today, and as i write this they are running down the pier throwing and another

the lastest rumor is they have seen 5 and had shots at two but buck fever hit and nothing in the frying pan

yesterdays catch included flounder, sheepshead, spanish , blue and jack cravelle,

if you dont hurry by the time you read this the first cobia may already be weighed in
