I am going on a family vacation to the Destin Area in 2 weeks. Me and my dad are pulling our 18 foot boat. We know we can't go on the ocean, but wanna fish the bay. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would also love to do some surf fishing, so any tips on that would be great. I have large spinning reels and 8-12 foot rods for catfishing, so I just need advice on what bait, how to get (i'm taking my cast net) and all that good stuff. Thanks in advance to anybody who throws their 2 cents in, reps coming your way!
