Local Fishing, Marinas & Tide Information
On Florida’s Nature Coast, boating, water sports, and fishing are an everyday part of life. Local marinas, including Turtle Cove Marina and Sunset Landing, offer wet and dry storage, quick access to the gulf, and reliable repairs. An incredible array of public parks – like Anclote River and Green Key – host public ramps, making it easy to launch your boat or kayak into the open water. Nature lovers will find plenty to explore offshore, including the pristine wilderness of Caladesi Island State Park and Three Rooker Island’s famous sandbar.
The local fishing scene just might be one of Pasco’s best-kept secrets. True sportsmen will appreciate the Gulf Coast fishing opportunities here, including tarpon ranging between 30 and 200 pounds. Even if you’re not equipped with your own boat, it’s easy to fish from a number of public docks. You can also hit the local lakes for a fresh-water-fishing excursion, where you’ll come across largemouth bass, catfish, and bream. In Florida, both saltwater and freshwater fishing licenses are reasonable and easy to come by.
