1. Key West, Florida
Florida is a fisherman’s paradise and if you enjoy saltwater fishing you want to make sure that you take a trip to the Florida keys for some ultimate offshore fishing. Do not forget to also look into an electric trolling motor to ensure you have the best one for your boat to get out further in the ocean.
In the keys, you will have endless possibilities of trophy fish such as wahoo, sailfish, amberjack, and kingfish. There are also plenty of places to fish in including, flats, open ocean, reefs, and mangroves.
2. Mississippi River Delta, Louisiana
For those that prefer inshore fishing, then the Mississippi River Delta is a great place to find some huge, colorful fish. You will find “Gator” Speckled Trout and “Bull” Redfish in these waters. Take a stab at fishing in the mouth of Old Man River or take a boat out to Old Man River.
3. Kenai Peninsula, Alaska
Freshwater fishing is a must in the Kenai River in Alaska. During the summer months, fishermen arrive from everywhere to catch King Salmon. You never know if you will be the next person to catch a 100 pound Chinook.
Make sure you are ready to pull your rod out because these powerful fish have enough power to smoke your reel and take your rod with them.
Kailua-Kona in Hawaii is another place that you want to add to your fishing bucket list. You don’t even have to go far to catch something like a Billfish because you can catch them right off the beach. There are plenty of Black Marlin, Tuna, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo, just to name a few.
5. Prince Edward Island, Canada
During the warmer summer months, you want to take a trip to Prince Edward Island if you are trying to catch some Tuna. It is not uncommon to hook up to a Bluefin Tuna that weighs over 800 pounds. One thing to keep in mind is that these fish are mostly for tag and release because scientists are still learning more about Bluefins.
