Catch a Florida Memory

Family Slam?
What's a Family Grand Slam you might ask? It's when you catch three fish in the same scientific family in 24 hours. For example catching three snapper species like Christina Vicidomini who caught a yellowtail, lane and gray(mangrove) snapper! Not sure if your fish are all in the same family? Feel free to send us an e-mail to ask or check out our Fish ID website which has some of the more commonly caught fish listed with their families

Thankful for our Military
We are so thankful for our service men and women today and every day. We want to take this opportunity to mention our Military Gold Sportsman License available to veterans and active duty military residing in Florida. It has the same benefits as the regular Gold Sportsman license for a significantly reduced price available. We also wanted to remind everyone that Florida residents who are members of the Armed Forces of the United States, and not stationed in this state, do not need a fishing license if they are home on leave for 30 days or less, upon submission of orders. For more information on these and other licensing options and exemptions please visit
