Along the hook of Florida's panhandle, the Forgotten Coast offers visitors some of the best fishing and water experiences of anywhere in Florida. Communities such as Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe, and Mexico beach offer you completely unique experiences because of the vast ecological community. The Gulf of Mexico lies on one side and two different bays separates the strip of islands from the mainland which means many different species and fishing experiences.

As you're planning your next Forgotten Coast visit, plan ahead so you know where you can get the gear you need and book your fishing charters or boat rentals to ensure you maximize your time on the water. Use this guide to help you get started!

Forgotten Coast Tackle & Bait Outfitters

Mexico Beach Tackle

  • Shell Shack
    • If you need something quick and close by in Mexico Beach, use Shell Shack for souvenirs, a bit of tackle, and great seafood for sale if your catch comes up short.

Port St Joe Tackle

  • Blue Water Outriggers
    • Blue Water is the biggest outfitters in the area with all the tackle, bait, and supplies you need or can handle. Ask the employees for some great knowledge on the area and pro tips before you head out on the water!

Cape San Blas Tackle and Boat Rental

  • Scallop Cove
    • Scallop Cove offers gas, boat rentals, tackle, area knowledge, a gift shop and Ggrowlers of beer to boot. Their store is full service on the cape and you can also check out Scallop Cove II in the state park.
  • Presnell's Boat Rental
    • Presnell's offers a marina as well as boat rental to help get you out on the water. If you're looking for a casual day on the water or you need something perfect for fishing in the bay, Presnell's has the boat that is perfect for you.
  • Captain Clint
    • Captain Clint offers simple pontoon rentals on the bay. You can fish out of a pontoon but the best part is, if you're not getting any bites, you can just cruise and relax all day long. The owner has great knowledge of the area and always offers great customer service while offering pontoons at a great, low rate.

Forgotten Coast Unique Charters

  • Cape Surfaris.
    • Experience a fishing tour like never before with Cape Surfaris. Cape Surfari will come to your location on the beach, with tackle, wood for a beach fire and plenty of bait.  This is perfect excitement to reel shark right on the beach. They will tag certain species and sizes to document the catch and location and if the shark is caught again you'll get a post card in the mail. This is the perfect way to enjoy fishing as a family as it's casual and you'll learn a lot. They even offer 4WD shelling and eco tours if you're not interested in fishing. This is a must-experience!
