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 and 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 now offers FREE fishing from the City Pier. No license required. 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   


Kings beginning to show and several nice blackfin tunas caught in the last week within 40 miles and the Kings in as close as Tower and buoy line. Snapper have been plentiful but watch your State line ( nine miles ) and the FWC assisted enforcement in Federal waters. Remember until June 1st it is only weekends in State waters and Federal waters opens June1 for 9 days.  Plenty of legal red snapper. Don't get greedy on the 20+ pounders.

Come on down and enjoy this beautiful time of the year!
