FISHING INFO & PHOTOS

Horseshoe Beach offers immediate access to some of the best, unspoiled, year-round fishing and scalloping in the country.  The common inshore species caught are redfish, seatrout, flounder, cobia, sheepshead, seasonal tarpon and Spanish mackerel.  The primary offshore species caught are grouper, snapper, sea bass and kingfish.  Stone crabs, blue crabs and scallops are also very prevalent certain times of year. 

Uniquely located halfway between Suwannee and Steinhatchee, Horseshoe has crystal clear water with lush grass flats just to the north and numerous tannic, creeks with oyster bars just to the south.  The site-fishing over the clear grass flats for big trout and reds is incredible as well as the fishing action at the numerous creek mouths and oyster bars.  The plethora of creeks located both directions are just a short kayak paddle away and are full of life.  The ospreys and eagles will often be your only competition for a productive oyster bar and exploring the area offers a step back into native Florida. 

Unlike elsewhere, you do not need live bait to catch big fish and will often have the entire flat, creek or offshore artificial reef all to yourself!  Surrounded by Wildlife Management Areas on both sides, the Horseshoe Beach area is not over-developed and over-fished like many other areas.
