Fishing Mexico Beach

Some of the best fishing in the State and Gulf is right here out of Mexico Beach. Whether you surf, pier or kayak fish the local waters or enjoy heading out to all of our offshore wrecks and structures. Our ship store has all you need to get started.

Fast and Easy Fishing License:

* You can also call (888)347-4356 a get it by phone.

Popular local fishing spots include surf fishing along the sugar white beaches, the newly renovated and extended Pier and Canal Park. Fishing from the beach does require a Florida fishing license for anyone 16 years of age and above. Mexico Beach does offer a city license for the Pier and Canal Park, which can be purchased in our ship store for only $5.00. On the beach and from the Pier, depending on the time of year, you can expect to get a cooler full of Pompano, Whiting, Flounder and Sharks. The Canal Park is also a great place for Flounder and catching bait fish. The Fall brings in many fishermen who line the canal for Trout and Redfish.

Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations periodically, as they change frequently.

Fishing Reports    10/01/14- Fall is here !  The temps are cooling and the fishing is heating up! Trout will begin retreating to shallow water with each passing cold front. Flounder bite is already picking up with most fish heading out to the 20' to 40' depths on structure. Red's are starting their migration and will pile up in the passes and channels. Pompano are about to migrate and will produce some large females,  in the bays find your grass and pot holes and keep an eye out for stingrays that they like to follow. Still plenty of kings and Spanish. Some of your biggest kings caught off the wall in PSJ in October. The Mexico Beach Pier remains hot with plenty of mangrove, flounder and Spanish.  Too many baits and tackle to list but DOA and Unfair offer some great soft and hard baits that we carry here at marina along with plenty of live bait ( shrimp and bull minnows ). Also have your sand fleas for the pompano. Great time of year for fishing here in MB. Fishing report compliments of Captain Fred Erickson of Wicker Bills Charters
