Whether you’re a fishing fanatic or a reel rookie, Florida’s Forgotten Coast is every angler’s paradise! The unique topography of the Apalachicola River and Bay systems combined with our ideal Gulf Coast location makes for fabulous fresh and saltwater fishing opportunities. The Forgotten Coast offers a diversity of fishing hotspots, including the Apalachicola River basin, the estuary system, wetlands, four barrier islands, oyster bars, sand flats and seagrass flats.

Fall is the perfect time of year to plan a thrilling fishing charter at St. George Island, Apalachicola, Carrabelle, Eastpoint or Alligator Point. With cooler temps upon us and that delightful crispness in the air, fishing on the Forgotten Coast is a great way to spend a sunny autumn day. November is prime time for catching speckled trout and redfish on the Forgotten Coast. When your arms get tired from reeling, ask your fishing guide to take you for a joy ride to collect shells, search for dolphins or just admire the stunning sunset.

Whether you’re in the mood for fresh or saltwater fishing, inshore or offshore, Franklin County has something for every fisherman, fisherwoman, fisher girl and fisher boy! Ready to plan a fun fall fishing adventure? Visit our fishing page for a full list of charters in our area.
