The Florida coast is known for having a wide variety of marine life, according to Guy Riordan, with the most popular being its vast array of saltwater fish. The sportsman and outdoor enthusiast says that Florida’s coastal waters offer everything from peaceful fishing excursions to deep water adventures that even the most experienced fishermen will find enthralling.
For fishermen wanting a quick bite and a long fight, says Guy Riordan, the tarpon is never a disappointment. This large game fish offers anglers a theatrical sight that they won’t soon forget, by jumping and spinning out of the water in an effort to free itself. Another enticing saltwater game fish for the experienced fisherman is the bonehead shark. The bonehead, says Guy Riordan, is similar to a hammerhead shark and maxes out at around 3 feet in length. In addition to tarpon and bonehead shark, Florida also offers a wide variety of other game fish both small and large.
