Take a Relaxing Fishing Vacation in Suwannee


If you’re a fisherman, pack your bags.  Pack your rods and reels.  Get the boat out of the garage and head out Hwy349 from US19/98 to the end of the road, and the town of Suwannee, Florida!  There are places to eat in Suwannee.  There are rental condos and homes (Suwannee Vacation Rentals).  There is a rustic fish camp (Bill’s Fish Camp) with motel rooms.


There are two big marinas (Gateway Marina and Suwannee Marina). And if you have a camper, RV or motorhome, consider the campground at Anderson Landing Campground (next to Bill’s and the boat ramp) or stop along Hwy349 at Yellow Jacket RV Park, Old Town Campground or Suwannee River Hideaway.




The “bottom line” is that the Suwannee River and it’s estuary on the Gulf of Mexico offers some excellent fresh and saltwater angling.  In freshwater, it’s all about black bass, especially the subspecies, the Suwannee bass.  In saltwater, anglers making a quick run from the mouth of the river to local reefs or tidal creeks will have access to spotted seatrout, redfish (red drum), black drum, flounder and even pelagics like Spanish mackerel or bluefish.
