Florida Duck Hunt
Coastal duck hunts in Florida can be some of the best in the world. Florida is the winter home for a large population of diving ducks in the Apalachee Bay region. North Florida is one of the best places to hunt redheads in the country! Apalachee Bay boasts massive populations of diver ducks like redheads, bluebills, & buffleheads with the occasional canvasback, pintail, teal, scoter, wigeon, gadwall, mergansers, wood duck, ring-neck, spoonbill, ruddy duck, and goldeneye. If you're looking for a new experience, coastal hunting might be right up your alley!
Florida Tripletail Fishing
Our local waters are home to some of the largest & most plentiful tripletail in the South. Tripletail are one of the absolute best fish to sight cast, very hard fighters, cooperative eaters, and one of the best table fare you will ever come across! Did I mention they are addictive to fish for? It’s surprising how many people have never heard of or even seen a tripletail. The best description to someone that has never seen one is basically a prehistoric dinosaur looking bream on steroids with razor sharp gill plates, sharp fins and well, 3 tails. Some people think they are gorgeous, some people think they are odd looking but no one can deny how tasty they are! Tripletail are opportunistic feeders that lie motionless until their prey comes close and they strike rapidly. They feed on fish and benthic crustaceans, including gulf menhaden, Atlantic bumper, glass minnows, swimming red crabs, anchovies, shrimp, and squid.
