Use this Florida fishing calendar as a general guide for your fishing expeditions for the fish mentioned. Of course there is some seasonal variability which will make some months better or worse than they are listed here. Also, the terms Best, Good, and OK are entirely subjective. Don’t put too much faith in the fishing charts you see like this, just use them as one bit of data as you’re planning your trip. Also consult tide charts which are far more important to Florida saltwater fishing because they are highly correlated with the fishing ‘bite.’
Note – This is not a legal guide regarding the open or closed status of fishing for Florida species above. To ensure you have the most up-to-date information download the official Florida Saltwater Fishing Regulations PDF (click) (July 2020).
