The whole of Florida is mad on fishing. When we go offshore, not only do we have to avoid the gambling ships, but we have to avoid hitting and sinking fishing boats that are out there at night without any lights. And then the sports fish boats wake us (i.e. rock us with their wakes - we are already awake)

The URL below is for Florida fishing regulations.

Equipment: You can go fishing on your own boat in which case you'll know what equipment you want. You can also charter a sports fishing boat, or go out on a head boat. A head boat is a boat that takes a lot of people at once and charges by the head (i.e. by the person). Usually a head boat supplies the gear and bait etc.

Directions: Anywhere there is water with fish in it, and sometimes where there is water with no fish.
