Sailfishing has been really hot just a few miles off the beach. A little farther offshore kings, cobia, and dolphin have been providing a decent bite. Closer to shore and in the waterway, blues, trout, drum, sheepshead and reds are there for the taking on the warmer prettier days. Wow! Hard to believe the fishing is this good and it is still only February.

The cost of fishing tackle can sometimes be considered to be on the little bit ridiculous side. There are fishing rods and reels that can vary from $30 to $300; gear, such as pliers pushing $80; and tackle boxes that can easily go over $50.

Keeping up with Florida Fishing Regulations can be a challenge to say the least. Long time residents have witnessed an extraordinary amount of change over the years, while newer residents face the challenges of having to learn these regulations from scratch.
