Anglers Resources


Recreational fishing is a multi-billion dollar resource-based industry in Florida. Anglers in Southwest Florida have several options including fishing inshore for snook, trout, and red drum among mangroves, oyster beds, and seagrasses,  offshore for grouper and snapper on artificial reefs and natural hardbottom communities, or for mackerel, tarpon, and cobia in open water environments.

Anglers can help protect and conserve valuable fishery resources by knowing and obeying state and federal fishing regulations, practicing proper handling practices when releasing fish, and properly disposing of all debris.
