Everything You Need to Know About St. George Island Fishing
Types of Fish on the FL Coast
Fishing in Florida is some of the best you’ll experience in the country! With so many different types of fish, like Spanish mackerel, flounder, speckled trout, redfish, and sharks, and so many incredible fishing spots on the clear or emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, there’s no doubt you’ll have a great time.
Where to Fish on St. George Island
The best fishing spots on the St. George Island and Apalachicola Bay area are the Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, Unit Four Beach, and Old Carrabelle Beach.
St. George Island State Park
They each have unique traits to help make your fishing adventure unforgettable. St. George Island State Park Beach takes the crown for the best shore fishing in the area.
East End Fishing Beach
Between St. George Island and Dog Island is the most productive fishing spot with deep currents and large schools of fish. It’s called East End Fishing Beach, and you can only use the beach for fishing.
Forgotten Coast Fishing Piers
