Fishing

A $7 BILLION INDUSTRY

FISHING AND BOATING

It’s easy to understand why Florida is a top destination for watersports. Florida has more than 7,800 lakes, 8,426 miles of shoreline and 1,711 rivers and streams site on a 500-mile long peninsula from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.

Fishing and boating, two of the state’s most popular watersports, can be enjoyed virtually all year long.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR

SEASONAL FISHING

Before you cast that line and expect a snapper, you should get familiar with the fishing seasons. Not all species are available year round, but if you brush up on your fishing knowledge, you can use the seasonal surplus to your advantage.
