Florida Fishing Guides and Charters

There is just so much to say about the charter fishing in Florida we could write page after page about the different types of fishing. With thousands of miles of coastline and over a hundred different species available the fishing in Florida offers endless possibilities. And it’s not only the great saltwater fishing, Florida is also known to have some excellent freshwater fishing, like the largemouth bass fishing in Lake Okeechobee where many well known and famous professional Florida fishing guides fish.

The charter fishing in Florida has been divided into seven regions to make it much easier to find a local Florida fishing charter or guide service. We split the Florida East Coast into North, Central, and Southern regions as we likewise did for Florida’s West Coast. In addition to that we added a Florida Keys fishing section. So where ever you go on your Florida fishing trip you should be able to easily find a local Florida fishing charter for any region of Florida.
