Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this subject.
I currently live in the Rockies, but have a saltwater fishing ‘problem’ that draws me to FL every chance I get. I’ll be fortunate enough to consider the possibility of splitting time between FL and WY in the next few years. So, I’m trying to gather some information on places I might want to visit/fish before making a decision on that FL location.
The vast majority of my experience in FL is in the Keys (specifically Key West). There are a ton of things I enjoy about that area and could easily just land there. I’ve also spent some time in the Panhandle and really enjoyed that for different reasons.
I know, I know … the first reaction from many will be “it depends on what you’re looking for.” Yeah, I know it depends. There will be pros and cons to every area. What I’m asking is what area YOU prefer and why? I’m specifically interested in the fishing opportunities, species, amount of recreational crowding, etc vs. the cost of real estate, etc. I fly fish the vast majority of the time, but have no problem breaking out the spin rod, too.
