Destin is home of the largest fishing fleet in the state of Florida and has become known for the beautiful emerald-green waters of our Gulf Coast. This prestigious event was originated by the wives of the fishermen and kicks off the Destin Fishing Rodeo held the entire month of October. Event dates are Oct. 7-9, 2005.
