Fish of Curry Hammock

Curry Hammock Hermit Crabs

Many commercial anglers 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.
