Freshwater fishing is excellent in the St Johns River and Lake George which empty into the Palm Coast inshore waters. The rich waters allow for prized inshore species to thrive. This also benefits the massive reef fish and pelagic species that live in deep waters making it a top fishing destination on the Atlantic coast.
Palm Coast Freshwater Fishing
Freshwater fishing is only a short drive inland and offers unique fishing opportunities. Lake George is only a few miles west of the coast but the water is brackish as the St. Johns River nears the ocean. This lake is very productive for crappie and bass as well as several other inshore species. The wide variety of species to target in Lake George means there is no shortage of fish to catch. If you want to get two birds with one stone, this is the fishing spot for you.
Palm Coast Inshore Fishing

These waters offer quality shots at some of the most sought-after inshore species. The inshore species available include trout, redfish, snook, and black drum with an added bonus of tarpon depending on the time of year.

Dropping bait near structure will be the best approach for catching various snapper and grouper species. Trolling will provide amazing opportunities to catch prized game fish like kingfish, Spanish mackerel, and mahi-mahi, which are plentiful off the Atlantic Coast of Florida. These nearshore fish species crush bait and fight hard which is the perfect recipe for an exciting day of fishing.
Palm Coast Offshore Fishing
Head out to the offshore blue water to target the heavy-hitting pelagic species. The range of incredible species that patrol these waters include blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi, kingfish, and sailfish. Many of these fish come through the area during their migration with tuna and sailfish coming in strong in the spring. Summer lends itself to a strong mahi-mahi and kingfish bite while huge wahoo are hot in the cooler months. Offshore trolling is exhilarating with long fights, huge blowups, and even bigger fish.
