The St. George Island fishing pier is an amazing place for expert and novice anglers alike. It juts out 600 feet into the water, giving you plenty of room to spread out. Plus, it’s a gorgeous place to enjoy during sunset! You can catch fish year round off SGI, but May starts the season of shore and pier fishing each year. Cast your line and catch fish like Florida pompano, black drum, Spanish mackerel, and more.

St. George Island Shore

One of the most popular St. George Island fishing spots is right from the shore! Anywhere along the island's miles of beautiful beaches is open to anglers, and you can even cast your line right in front of your beach house if you choose an oceanfront property from Collins Vacation Rentals. When you try surf fishing, you’ll love the convenience of stepping right outside your rental and setting up your fishing pole.  

St. George Island State Park

St. George Island State Park is a great place for surf fishing. Bring your rod, line, and bait, then cast out into the gorgeous Apalachicola Bay. Pull in flounder, redfish, sea trout, pompano, whiting, Spanish mackerel and more when you fish from the shores of the park. You can also use a boat to do some fishing further out into deeper waters!
