Fishing in the tropical paradise known as
Southwest Florida can be one of the most rewarding experiences
you may ever have. Much of our coastline is lined with mangroves,
a prime ingredient for an estuary which is basically a breeding
ground for both bait fish and sport fish. The shallow back
bays provide the perfect location to catch a "tailing" Red
Drum, Trout or Snook.
Enjoy a quick excursion to deeper waters
where shipwrecks and artificial reefs provide the perfect sanctuary
for a variety of Grouper, Snapper and Mackerel. Feel the excitement
as your spinning reel screams from a running 100 lb. tarpon
in a Boca Grande Tournament.
Our diverse array of aquatic dwellers is astounding. There
are more than 1,000 species of fish in the Florida waters and
most of them are edible. To avoid overfishing, many rules have
been established. To avoid fishing violations, it is well advised
to be aware of them.
