Fishing Seasons in Florida

Saltwater fishing in Florida is a popular pastime for many. From tropical coral reefs to the deep waters of the Gulf, the Sunshine State offers plenty of opportunities to reel in your next "big one".

The abundance and variety of fish species, including snook, tarpon, grouper, and redfish, make saltwater fishing off the coast of Florida an adventure like no other.

With access to both Atlantic and Gulf state waters, anglers can enjoy year-round opportunities for some of the best catches around.

Whether fishing inshore or offshore, it's important to be aware of the regulations put in place by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Knowing when certain species are in season and adhering to bag limits will help ensure a successful outing.
