Thousands of Canadians including myself love to take a break during the winter months and head to Florida for some warmth and sunshine.
For those of us that like to fish, like the Grdosic family, a holiday there will probably include some fun fishing. While I fish seriously in the Gulf of Mexico and the larger inter-coastal bays for a variety of trophy fish, fun can be had just catching fish off of beaches, docks and piers.
Here are just a few of the saltwater fish species you can catch right form shore like flounder.
Pinfish are plentiful anywhere around sea grass and can grow up to about 10″.
Small sharks are common along the beach, break walls and pretty well anywhere in the inter-coastal waterways.
Spotted Sea Trout often move in and out with the tides and can be easily caught casting artificial lures or on live shrimp. And our featured image is of the popular saltwater Sheepshead that likes to feed around abutments.
