You have easy access to S. Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, and the upper Keys plus lots of fresh water ponds, canals, and lakes.

What type fishing are you interested in, and what type equipment will you use.. Do you have boat, canoe, kayak, SUP, or strictly foot patrol.

If you are living in any community with canal, pond, lakes.. its an easy start there. Grab a spinning, or bait cast, setup and start casting Rapala X-raps in black/Silver or Black/Gold is always a good choice to start with. Jump on Google Earth and start looking around your area, if you see water and a place to park without being towed, start casting. West of US1 should be fresh, East could be fresh, brackish, or salty.

I just picked up and read, (and I;m not a very good reader), a book called "The Ultimate Guide to Fishing South Florida on Foot" by Steve Kantner (The Land Captain)... its not a long book but is very to the point about fishing the South Florida area from Coast to Coast. MPO is anyone with the will power to read, then do a little research should be able to find and catch fish....
