Breaking Down The Paradise Coast
For the purpose of LocalAngler, we’ve defined the Paradise Coast region as the following counties: Lee County, Collier County, and the inland portion of Monroe County.
The Caloosahatchee River is the connection between Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf of Mexico, and provides an awesome brackish water fishery. Cape Coral has a pretty extensive canal system that is connected to a ton of freshwater lakes and endless possibilities for largemouth bass and other panfish. As far as the saltwater runs, you’ve got amazing potential for a great day on the water, however, recently, there’s a lot of issues with Red Tide, so it’s always good to keep that in mind when planning your trips.
You might want to take a look at the Golden Gate Canal, which is loaded with an awesome freshwater bite throughout. Naples area and Marco Island are stellar, whether you’re looking for bass or snook, tarpon and more! Don’t count out the near-shore fish such as grouper, cobia, sharks and more!
Now, almost 90% of the land in Monroe County is down at the bottom of Florida, but almost 99% of the population actually lives on the islands in the Florida Keys. There’s a plethora of species you can find in and around the Everglades, which is what we’ll call the inland portion of the county. There’s not a lot of people, but a lot of people go fishing here. Whether you’re looking for freshwater, brackish, or full-blown tidal saltwater, there’s a fish waiting.
