Fishing in Shalimar
Measuring only 0.3 square miles, the town of Shalimar may be small, but the fishing opportunities it provides are mighty. Located at the northeastern edge of Choctawhatchee Bay, this tiny town is home to a bridge, which spans the Garnier Bayou. Because of that, Shalimar Bridge fishing is a popular pastime for locals and visitors alike!
The waters around the bridge are made up of a network of seriously shallow flats and grassy beds, and provide the perfect home for huge Redfish and Speckled Trout throughout the year. Come summer, and many other seasonal fish make their way to the bridge, with Flounder, Jacks, and many more coming to the fore.
If you want to fish under the cover of darkness, head out in the evening or early morning to explore the docks between Garnier Bayou and Shalimar Bridge. Trips can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day, giving you the full Shalimar Bridge fishing experience.
Rules & Regulations
When fishing aboard a charter, you won’t need a license as your captain will have it covered. However, heading out on your own will mean that you’ll need to get a Florida saltwater permit. Not only that, but heading out with a guide will also make sure that you don’t need to worry about bag and size limits.
