Inland or Offshore… Fresh or Salty
Anglers, from first timers to the most serious sportsman, love fishing in the Florida Panhandle, whether seeking inshore or offshore, there is hardly a spot where you can’t catch a fresh or salty fish. Red drum, Amberjack, Grouper, Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, sheepshead, flounder, bass, bream, shellcracker, freshwater catfish and so many more. The abundance and size of the catch can be both intimidating and challenging… making them fun to catch and keeps fishermen coming back for more. And don’t forget, blue crabs and shrimp can be trapped in our waters too, just ask a local they’ll be happy to tell you how.
Cast a line in a favorite “honey hole” tucked away in lakes, small ponds, and creeks, fish our mighty rivers, or charter a boat for an unforgettable deep-sea fishing excursion. Visit our partner sites for connections to boat ramps and guide services.
