Get reel and fish on
Recreational fishing is a Florida tradition. Catching your first snook, redfish, or kingfish is an experience that won't be soon forgotten. If you'd like to add fishing to your bucket list, one of the best ways is to charter a boat and a guide. Sound pricey? For a family or a group of friends, it’s a relative bargain since chartered tours provide the gear and licenses. Deep-sea and backcountry fishing guides are easy to find at most beach enclaves. Shore fishing is another saltwater angling option, though a fishing license is required and regulations apply. To avoid the crowds, drop your line during the early morning or early evening. At more secluded beaches, such as Cape Canaveral’s Playalinda Beach, you can snag a spot for the day.
