Newly opened waters offer lingcod fishing and greater depth than before, and anglers are cashing in.
World’s Premier Fishing Destinations
Early season tarpon fishing in the Florida Keys, before the main migration and the crowds.
Spring migration of striped bass opens promising fishing opportunities.
In fall, gag grouper action heats up in the Gulf waters off Crystal River, Florida.
Part of the fishing experience is your natural surroundings when on the water. For example, when you fish for tarpon at night in the waters of Miami, Florida, cars and trucks honk their horns overhead as you soak jumbo live shrimp in the shadow lines of a bridge. But if you head south of Miami about 45 miles, you fish for the same species, tarpon, surrounded by lush green mangrove forests of the Everglades. Many anglers prefer to head to the Everglades rather than fish the city because of the national park’s natural beauty.
Whatever type of angler you are, Salt Water Sportsman has you covered. We highlight all the fishing hot spots, whether they’re within city limits, along the Intracoastal Waterway, far off the coast, or in some hard-to-reach mangrove jungle.
The amount of game fish and fishing styles available to saltwater anglers is nothing short of spectacular. Whether it’s trolling offshore, fishing wrecks and structure, drift-fishing inlets and bays, or sight-fishing the flats, the list of different fishing techniques is extensive. At Salt Water Sportsman, we’ve picked the brains of the best anglers and captains for decades, uncovering tips and techniques crucial to successful fishing trips.
