Fishing

Florida is a fisherman's paradise, with a wide variety of lake and sea fishing available. The many locations offer fishing from:

  • The shore of a quiet lake or spring-fed river for bass, perch, shad and blue gill
    the Gulf or Atlantic coast for trout, sea bass, mackerel, red fish, pompano and snook
  • A deep-sea fishing boat for tarpon, snapper, grouper, marlin, barracuda and shark.

Both freshwater and sea fishing require licenses which are generally provided by commercial charter vessels but can also be purchased online, at most tackle shops, recreation stores and discount stores such as Wal-mart and Target. Current information regarding regulations and rates can be found at the website for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

There are many professional sports venues to visit if you prefer to watch a game rather than participate.

  • Orlando Magic play basketball at the TD Waterhouse Centre.
  • The Tampa Bay Devil Rays play baseball at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
