Good news! The Florida Gulf is shaping up for a great day of fishing. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Inshore: With calmer weather coming in, fishing should be excellent. Snook are still active thanks to recent rains, especially around the beaches and backcountry. You might also have luck with species like redfish, trout, and mackerel.
  • Offshore: Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing has been hot lately, particularly in the 120-150 foot depth range. Kingfish are also a possibility around 70-80 feet. If you’re targeting bottom feeders, grouper are active in the 80-90 foot range.
