Some studies suggest that one in five Charlotte County
residents spend time fishing, along with one in six visiting
tourists. We live in a fishing paradise, with
fishing options for every angler, from fresh water ponds and
canals, to the backwaters of our creeks and rivers, to the
open waters of Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico.
Among the fish caught by local anglers are: tarpon, snook,
redfish, spotted sea trout, mullet, flounder, permit,
grouper, sheepshead, snapper, sea bass, tuna, amberjack,
kingfish, mackerel, cobia and black
Many of the local guides have individual websites that can
be located via the search engines. We haven't
attempted to list those sites here. Below you'll find
sites that provide a range of general interest information
related to fishing.
