Fishing in Florida

Come and experience the vast beauty and fishing pleasure.

Why Is Florida the 'Fishing Capital of the World'? Florida is the “Fishing Capital of the World” because of its great resources and responsible management. The diversity of sport fish, habitats, great weather, year-round fishing and superb tourism and fishing industry-related infrastructure are unsurpassed.  With 7,700 lakes, 10,550 miles of rivers and 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline Florida is the place to be. With all those areas teeming with fish why not choose Florida. 
There are more reasons to come down to Florida than just fish. 

Pensacola and Pensacola Beach
From sky to sea, there’s much to see here. Overhead, the Blue Angels practice from mid-March to mid-November (watch from the viewing area at the National Naval Aviation Museum). History dominates at street level. Take a guided tour of 19th-century homes and the 1832 Old Christ Church at Historic Pensacola Village, or stroll beneath the oaks to the wooden gazebo at Seville Square. There are ample water sports activities and classic beach fun to be had along Quietwater Beach Boardwalk, but you can also access the hushed Gulf Islands National Seashore here. For divers, the world’s largest artificial reef, the retired aircraft carrier USS Oriskany, lies just offshore.

Its waterfront isn’t the center of the industry, it was in the mid-19th century, but some of the brick warehouses once devoted to cotton production remain – shop for clothing and other gift items at Grady Market for a taste – and the river’s influence is ever-present. Oyster boats run in place of cotton-laden steamboats. Shrimp and blue crab are tasty here, too. Though the town boasts more than 900 historic sites, it’s an easy walk to most of them.
