Amazing Fishing near Our King's Bay, Florida, Resort

Simply put, Central Florida fishing doesn't get any better than this. Saltwater species easily targeted include snook, redfish, speckled trout, grouper, snapper, and even tarpon, the ultimate game fish for many an angler. We are one of Florida's hotbeds for bay scallops, and scalloping is one of our most popular summertime activities, as well as a great family adventure done by snorkeling on the second largest grass flat in the country.
