Florida Saltwater Fishing

A great place for Florida saltwater fishing, especially if you are targeting redfish, is the beach along St. Vincent Island. It is only accessible by boat is run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a National Wildlife Refuge. If you are looking for something a bit primitive, this is the place, full of hunters and camps. You may also try the seawall along the old bridge to St. George Island, where sections of the bridge have been turned into piers for anglers since the new high bridge was built and all that is left is the old road bed. Here, you’ll find not only good Florida saltwater fishing in terms of reds but also sheepshead.

In the summer months, Florida saltwater fishing can really heat up, with lots of action all over the state but especially in the Apalachicola Bay area. If you plan to fish the surf, be there early in the day and again late in the afternoon, as these are the best times. At this time of year, reds will be back out in the open waters, burrowing on the bottoms and looking for shrimp and crabs to eat. Don’t forget about areas like St. Andrews Pass, Crooked Creek, and the piers of Panama City and Mexico Beaches, either, for a good summer catch.
