Backcountry fishing is one of the most exciting things about a Florida Fishing Trip for a vacationing angler. Florida fishing is some of the best in the country. Flats fishing in St. Andrews Bay offers opportunities to reel in a variety of species, including tarpon, redfish, trout, grouper, snapper, mackerel and even sharks. Backcountry fishing requires a competent and experienced guide, a specialized boat, and a sense of adventure. Your backcountry Florida fishing options include the shallows of St. Andrews Bay, the grass flats of West, North, and East Bays, and the coastal structures of St. Andrews Bay Pass and Shell Island.
