Fishing in the Florida Bay and Gulf of Mexico is normally very exciting and action packed! There are many different species we fish for in these areas including Groupers, Snappers, Mackerels, Cobia, Permit, and sharks of all species. This type of fishing is generally done on anchor, but on occasion we will drift or sight fish for certain species that we are targeting. Due to the nature of the “green” or “dirtier” water, this type of fishing will present top water and sight fishing opportunities that are hard to find on the Atlantic side. Another bonus to this trip is that the areas we fish are very spread out, which means the fishing pressure is at a minimum. This fishery is a very “conditions” based fishery, which means it doesn’t always make sense to make the run into the “back”. This type of fishery is best during the cooler months of the year, and is often a great decision to make with a hard East to Southeast wind during the winter months.
