Recommendation on Finding a Guide in Destin

WaterRatWaterRat Junior MemberPosts: 2 Greenhorn
Greetings- I would appreciate anyone who can steer me in the right direction. My son and I are coming down to Destin the third week of June for a family vacation, and we would like to work in a day of fishing. I have never fished the Destin area before, and would like to find a good guide for a day. The species of fish is not important. We just want to have a great time on the water and catch some fish. Can anyone recommend a good guide in the area and possibly provide contact information. Thanks

    Capt. Patrick Dineen has a great reputation...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    I am not a guide but I will be down there every weekend of snapper season. You can go with us if you want. We should have some room for 2. Let me know

    You may want to call Daniel Pike at inshore Angler. My son and I had a great trip with him several years ago.
