Fish to Catch in Florida

Life in Florida is all about fun in the sun and water, and fishing is all part of the Florida lifestyle experience. You first want to know what type of fish you can catch from the beaches or piers of Florida, as found on Sarasota. It's always exciting to catch something that you can turn into dinners, such as Flounder, Pompano, Sheepshead, and Whiting. No matter what you catch, it's the thrill of what's on the line that makes it exciting every time.

Whether you fish from the shore, the pier or go out for some ocean fishing, it's important you know the rules and regulations. Found on Florida Sportsman, you will find everything you need to get ready to enjoy fishing anywhere in Florida.

You don't have to own a boat or take a charter to have fun fishing in Florida, as found on the Florida Insider Fishing Report.

Venice Fishing Pier

Located at 1600 Harbor Drive, South in Venice, Florida, you can have fun casting out a line from the Venice Fishing Pier. What makes it easy to fish here, there is no license required. And, if you don't have a great day of catching something to eat, simply enjoy eating at Sharky's On The Pier!

Venice Jetty Fishing

There are two jetties located in Venice, known as the North Venice Jetty and the South Venice Jetty. You do need to have a Florida fishing license to fish at the jetties, but you have the possibility of catching "sharks, cobia, flounder, pompano, and bluefish." 

Venice Beach Fishing

Florida's public beaches are great places for fishing, as found on Florida Go Fishing. Here, you will learn everything you need to know to be ready for a day of exciting shore fishing. On Fish Track, equipped with a webcam, it's easy to know the condition on Venice Beach.

Charter Fishing

You don't have to be in the deep waters to catch some yummy fish. You can hire a fishing guide to take you to excellent fishing "nearshore or inshore." And part of the charter fishing experience usually includes having your catch gutted, cleaned and packed for transport home. What a wonderful thing!

Sometimes it's fun to head out to sea, and let a professional take you to see what is lurking below Florida's deeper gulf waters. Word of mouth is a great way to hook up, no pun intended, with a great fishing charter. On FishingBooker, you can see that you won't have a hard time getting out to open waters for some exciting fishing. Deep sea fishing is where you may hook the infamous Tarpon or Sailfish. Not to mention the big groupers that we all love to eat. Your charter captain will know all the rules, and they will tell you what you need to do to prepare for your excursion upon the seas. 

Kayak and Canoe Fishing

If you are someone who loves to fish from a kayak or canoe, there are places to launch around Venice, as found on Shipdetective.com. You can find places on the Intracoastal Waterway, on a river, or near a beach.
