Wander through the vast waters
Explore Florida's Anclote Key
The tug of a line, the whirl of the reel—there’s nothing like the excitement of reeling in a catch, and it’s even better when white-sand beaches, coastal wetlands and the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico are your backdrop. Pack up your gear and take your pick from all types of fishing spots near Anclote River Resort.
Want something low key? Stroll over to Anclote River Park, which features designated fishing areas for easy access, or venture to nearby Anclote Gulf Park, where the fishing pier will take you out over the ocean water.
If you prefer fishing while on the water, rent a kayak and launch your boat into the Anclote River, just steps from your cottage or RV site. You could snag red drum, common snook and trout—just be sure to keep an eye out for friendly manatees, which also call these waters home.

If you’re hoping for a big fish story, get out on the open water with a deep-sea fishing charter. Bring the entire family for a half-day trip to catch grouper, seabass and snapper, or opt for a full-day or multi-day offshore trip to try catching tuna, kingfish, swordfish and marlin.
Before going fishing, chat with your Wanderful Concierge Specialist to learn about fishing licenses, nearby tackle shops, gear rentals and fishing charters.
