Whether your preference is salt or fresh water fishing, Florida’s Nature Coast has you covered. A combination of lakes, rivers, and the Gulf of Mexico attract an abundance of fish including snapper, grouper, and bass. Here are the top fishing spots:

Weeki Wachee River: Mullet, bass, snapper and spotted sunfish are some of the fish caught in this crystal clear, spring-fed river and as it has a broad canopy along much of its 7 mile long run, it is one of the few places that offers relief from the hot summer sun.

Bayport: Fishing Pier or Boat Ramp is a place where you can fish and crab all day long. Pack a picnic lunch and relax at the covered picnic tables, or take time to catch the breathtaking view of the sun sinking into the Gulf of Mexico.

Jenkins Creek: Easy launch site if you have a small boat. Go and explore the coastal salt marshes, the canals and other waterways or spend some time at its fishing pier and do some crabbing.

The Reefs: Use Bayport or Hernando Beach boat ramps and head out to the Gulf of Mexico. Visit one of Hernando County’s four reefs for some great fishing opportunities.

Withlacoochee River: Launch your boat at Lake Townsen or Nobleton Wayside and do some river fishing. The river stretches for miles in both directions and offers a relaxing afternoon surrounded by nature.
