Whether seeking to catch dinner for the evening or to simply just checkout and enjoy, fishing in Gulf County is a year-round activity.
And the thrill of fishing can be dialed up or down a knotch depending on your mood. The hunt for the bigger, stronger fish definitly is offshore. Test your strength and endurance as you are challenged by Grouper, Mahi, Red Snapper, Spanish Mackeral or Amberjack. Have fun but be more mellow fishing in the Bay or the Canal. The adreniline might not be so strong, but it’s always a thrill to catch Speckled Trout, Flounder, Whiting, Pompano, Mullet and, yes... sometimes even a shark!
Have the urge to seek something more elusive? Go out with Captain Jordan Todd of Saltwater Obsessions to find, and hopefully catch, some Triple Tail. Once you spot them you have to cast perfectly and hook them quick or they will get away. They are lazy... but boy are they fast!
If fresh water is more your thing, head North over the Intracoastal, back your boat in and back out of the twenty-first century. When you encounter the hauntingly beautiful wonders of Gulf County’s legendary Dead Lakes, the ecologically diverse Apalachicola River system or the marvels of Lake Wimico, your co-workers are ospreys, fish, manatee and alligators.
Our unique freshwater environment provides any angler with a variety of exhilarating fishing and boating experiences and a whole lot of wildlife excitement. Spend an early summer morning fly-fishing for Red Bellied Bream amongst the ancient cypress. Camp overnight on the Apalachicola River and reel in a massive Flathead Catfish. Whether spending a lazy afternoon with a cane pole and kayak, or an adrenaline packed morning chasing Largemouth Bass, wetting your line in our waters will guarantee you come ashore with a boatload of memories.
Share the excitement and wild beauty of our unspoiled water ways with your loved ones; take back pictures, or take back supper! Your time on the water will be unforgettable.
