Little River Fishing

The Intracoastal Waterways and ample backwater creeks cocooning the Little River community provide a nourishing habitat for game fish of all shapes and sizes, with plenty of keepers to go around throughout the calendar year. The likes of Flounder and Bluefish dominate the tidal creeks as soon as early spring, later on migrating to the area's abundant inlets and sounds. Following suit, the coveted Redfish schools infest the neighboring rivers and inlets during the prolific fall season, with massive stripers and Speckled Trout showing up at the creek mouths come wintertime. The nearshore reefs, sunken wrecks and live rock bottoms play host to a wide range of rod-bending bruisers such as Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda and Cobia, with nocturnal fishing excursions for sea bass and several species of shark proving increasingly popular. And if the bite ever starts to dwindle, count on a colorful variety of native and exotic birds, as well as inquisitive bottlenose dolphins to keep you entertained on the local waterways. For those addicted to real adrenaline-packed sportfishing, the Gulf Stream honey holes are inhabited by several world-renowned pelagic species, including Dorado, Wahoo, Sailfish, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Marlin and more!
