Saltwater Fishing near Lake County, FL

Head West – If you head west, you can go fish the Homosassa and Crystal, River.  Both of these destinations have some incredible inshore fishing and you can get away from the crowds in both destinations.  If you are up for driving a couple of hours, you can head over to the Tampa Bay area.  Here, there are so many great inshore fishing options to go along with awesome deep sea fishing and some of the best fishing without a boat in all of Florida.

Head East – If you head east, you can go fish the Space Coast.  You can fish inshore or offshore here, although, the inshore fishing in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River gets most of the attention, especially among anglers that like to fish freshwater for bass.  When fishing the inshore waters here, you will most likely be fishing the shallow grass flats for redfish and sea trout, which is very similar to fishing the shallows for bass.  New Smyrna Beach is also a great destination.  It is very close to Daytona Beach and you have some great inshore, offshore and shore fishing options there.
