Home to hundreds of species of fish, the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay attract avid anglers from all around the world. Eager to cast your line into the deep blue sea? Here are three popular ways to put your fishing skills to the test.

Fish On Foot

If you’ve rented one of our beautiful Resort Vacation Properties on St. George Island, you won’t be far from the island’s white sand beaches. Many of our guests find it easy to pack up their gear and go fishing right from the shore. From the island’s northern shore, cast into the Apalachicola Bay to reel in redfish, flounder and more, or head to the island’s southern shore to experience surf fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, which is known to yield grouper, mahi-mahi and several other saltwater species. Another popular option is the northern region’s massive public fishing pier, which extends 600 feet into the bay.

Fish From Your Boat

Renting a boat for a fishing trip is a breeze on St. George Island. Our guests have numerous options among the island’s boat, canoe and kayak rental spots. In addition, you’ll have access to a boat launch at the St. George Island Fishing Pier, two natural ramps at St. George Island State Park and miles upon miles of easily accessible beachfront property, making it easy to explore on your watercraft of choice.

Embark On A Chartered Fishing Tour

For the ultimate Forgotten Coast fishing experience, seek out a local fishing charter. Several businesses, both on the island and in nearby communities, offer guided boat and kayak tours, led by veteran anglers who are happy to teach vacationers the ins and outs of fishing around St. George Island.
