OUR PARADISE ON EARTH
Florida has earned the reputation of being the Fishing Capital Of The World; and for good reason.

If you are looking for a fight Florida offshore is the place to be:

Offshore is just the beginning!

Florida inshore fishing is also absolutely fantastic:



Many decades ago the inshore grass flats fishing around the Sunshine Skyway Bridge Causeway was a dream come true. I know; I did it!



The flats were loaded with huge Red Fish, Trout, and Snook. Bet here is that young lady could still catch her dream-fish around Florida's Sunshine Skyway Flats.

And that's just the beginning. Let's take a look at what's going on now in our Florida inshore waters:







This nice Redfish was caught off the Hubbard Marina's Dock:



Think the action stops when the sun goes down?

Think again! This is our Florida:





Decades ago the nighttime Trout fishing around the Clearwater Pass Bridge was outstanding.

I know. I did it!



Bet here is that young man could still catch Trout at night around the Clearwater Pass Bridge.

Our Florida Speckled Trout is very abundant, fun to catch, and extremely good eating:



Florida has earned the reputation of being the Fishing Capital Of The World; and for good reason.
Offshore, Inshore, Florida is the place to be.
I am proud to be a Florida native who has been fishing our 'PARADISE ON EARTH' for seventy years.
I could not imagine living anywhere other than our...

Thanks to another proud Florida native for providing the excellent pictures.
Thank you...

"Sorry, but the West Coast has you beat, all things considered."
That would take a huge amount of 'considering' and an even bigger imagination.
