What To Catch

Fishing is one of the most popular reasons for visiting the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Warm waters and diverse marine life make for a fisherman’s dream!

Game Fish on the Gulf

When you head out into the Gulf with fishing tackle, there are tons of fish to look out for. Common species in the area include grouper, snapper, cobia, or catfish, all with the potential to nip at the other end of your line.

Looking for something larger? Go on a hunt for tarpon, blue marlin, sailfish, or the longbill spearfish. These huge fish provide even the most experienced fishermen with a challenge. Flying fish also make occasional appearances over deep water. Additionally, species of sharks prowl the Florida Gulf coast, including hammerhead, mako, and bonnethead sharks.

Other Marine Life

Other marine life you’ll want to admire but not catch include graceful rays, cruising sea turtles, and frolicking dolphins.

Florida State Fishing Regulations

Regulations and seasons vary from year to year, so you’ll want to check the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission before heading out to fish on your own.
