From blue marlin to bluegill, quiet streams to deep swells, Florida has everything a fisherman could ever want along with unmatched sunshine nearly year-round.

The state is uniquely positioned to accommodate a variety of gamefish like nowhere else on earth. The iconic peninsula tilts from the U.S. continent south toward subtropical waters. From Pensacola to Key West lies an 800-mile bridge between the coral reef species of the Caribbean Sea and the temperate species of North America. There is fresh water, salt and endless gradients of brackish habitat to explore.
