Shoreline fishing in the park

map

Fishing is a popular activity in and around Everglades National Park.

Some people set out to fish with expensive rods and reels and ocean-worthy speedboats.

For others, all that's required is a basic rod, a little bit of bait and a couple of feet of shoreline.

Call it a sport or hobby or childhood pastime for which you never lost interest. Fishing is all about the experience of nature and water and the thrill of the hunt.
