Curry Hammock Hermit Crabs

Many commercial fishermen have fished our waters for years as several popular target species can be caught in our waters.  Species like tarpon, snook, redfish, mangrove snapper and even a few bone fish are often caught or seen in our waters. The best times to see these fish at the park are during tide changes because of the movement of the water. 

Kayak rentals can give you access to the nearby waters, will expand your experience and increase your chances of seeing the fish.

Fishing is allowed, however, fishing licenses are required.  They can be purchased at MyFWC.com or 1-888-Fish-Florida (888-347-4356).  Sorry, spear fishing is never allowed in the state parks, and all bag rules must be followed.
