If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 fish to eat in Florida!


10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackeral, kingfish is not the best fish to eat as a main course since it tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content. However, commercial kingfishing is a booming industry in South Florida for a big reason- smoked fish dip. Just about every restaurant in South Florida carries this delectable

With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier.

If you’re looking to have some fun but don’t care about putting food on the table, catch and release snook have been the main event this week inshore, at the Juno Pier, along the beach, and Palm Beach Inlet has been pretty solid. Live croaker should get the job done during the day, and if you’re looking to do some night fishing, Juno Bait Shop should be able to help you out with some flair hawk jigs. Snook season starts September 1st, so hold off on harvesting them until then!

Not much action has been seen offshore this week. There are plenty of patches of seaweed, but it seems like they’re true nurseries right now, only inhabited with crustaceans and schools of peanut mahi. It’s
