Florida for March break? Don’t forget your fishing outfit!

Posted on March 14th, 2017

Many families are planning to take a Florida vacation over school break. Just a reminder that if you love to fish, there are lots of shore fishing opportunities that include fishing from bridges, fishing piers, and even just off the beach!

Matt Wright sent us these images of his beach catches that include the Black Drum that can reach weights of over 50 lb. and often cruise the beach, intercostal bays and like to feed especially around bridge abutments. His catches are from the Perdido Key, Florida.

pompano

Pompano is another very popular fish that is often caught off the beach. It’s sought after for it’s good sportfishing qualities, and also because they are excellent eating!

sheepshead

Sheepshead (saltwater sheepshead not to be confused with our freshwater drum/sheepshead), boost stripes like a referee jersey and are plentiful and commonly caught from shore. They too are excellent eating.  So when you are packing, don’t forget to take a medium-action rod. Don’t worry about the terminal tackle, there are lots of bait shops all over Florida that sell saltwater hooks, sinkers and bait.
