The waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay don’t disappoint when it comes to fishing. Poor fishing in this area is nearly impossible. However, not all fish are in our waters during every season.
You may want to fish for Redfish or Grouper, which are two of the most popular fish. All varieties of Snapper, except for Red Snapper, will be readily available.
Bridges, natural reefs and shipwrecks are some of the best places to drop a line. Mid-Bay Bridge that spans Choctawhatchee Bay is a great fishing spot. Scores of fish call the bridge supports home. If you’re proficient with a cast net, you can pull in a net full of mullet.
If you head out the East Pass from the Bay into the Gulf of Mexico, you may encounter large game fish that will be photo-worthy.
