About The Area

In Apalachicola we have a vast variety of
fish and fishing methods. These range from a 12` fiberglass pole and a
bucket of worms or live minnows, to light casting and spinning tackle,
all the way to 80 lb class bottom tackle offshore. We fish in anywhere
from 2` of water to 125` of water. We catch bream, bass, and
shellcrackers in freshwater. Then in shallow saltwater we catch
redfish, speckled trout, black drum, sheephead, whiting, white trout,
pompano, tripletail, flounder, sharks, and many other species. Offshore
in the deeper water we catch grouper, red and black snapper, king
mackerel, amberjack, cobia, sharks, and the list goes on. 


As you can see we do have a have a lot to
chose from, and some of the most natural and pristine fishing areas
anywhere. From hundreds of miles of creeks, rivers, lakes, and tidal
marshes, to fifty plus miles of white sandy beaches on Apalachicola
Bays barrier islands. Nearly half of our barrier islands are owned by
the state or federal government, they are uninhabited and very few
people visit them. They are wonderful, beautiful, pristine and waiting
for you and your family to enjoy.
