Florida Flats Fishing


Florida's Gulf coast is a well-kept secret when it comes to its saltwater fishing. Many species roam the saltwater flats and estuaries along the central Gulf coast including speckled trout, redfish, snook, tarpon, cobia, mackerel, and triple tail. This trip is a great option for those looking to get away from the cold or spend a long weekend away from home. Besides the fishing, this trip offers lots to do for the family and non-fishing spouse. Accommodations are in a four-star historic resort located along the Crystal River, a short distance from where the fishing takes place. Other amenities available at the hotel include two golf courses, full restaurant and bar, spa, boat tours, bird watching, or book a tour to swim with the manatees! The area abounds with some great restaurants including fresh local seafood. Plus, Disney World is a short distance away and would make a fun extension to your fishing trip!
