Dunedin Florida is one of Florida’s lesser-known fishing destinations. This off the beaten path fishing courtesan boasts amazing inshore fishing and includes areas like Honeymoon Island and St. Joseph’s Sound.
Anglers will find superb inshore fishing along the Dunedin Causeway, the tree lined gateway to Honeymoon Island State Park. The Dunedin Causeway is an ocean lined two and a half mile drive. Saint Joseph’s Sound rests along either side of the drive. Anglers often report catching Tarpon, Redfish, Seatrout, and Ladyfish from these crystal clear waters.
Dunedin is a fishery that is open all year round. It houses resident species that will allow you to take a productive fishing trip any time of the year. The number one species for year-round activity here is the redfish. This area houses a very healthy population of slot and over slot redfish and are a local favorite. Close behind red’s is the sea trout fishing. Available all year also, this species is another on the Dunedin target list.
Honeymoon Island offers 4 miles of pristine beach for reeling-in the big catch. The island is also renowned for hiking; its 3 mile long Osprey trail winds through towering evergreens, noted as the Florida’s last Virgin Slash forest. Birders may easily catch a glimpse of Horned Owls as they nest along the winding trail. However, anglers visit this state park for the inshore Tarpon fishing. Tarpon are known to literally leap from these waters, especially during late Summer.
Dunedin Florida’s concert season is in motion. Local musicians grace the stage to bring some cool to the region’s hot nights: Country, Classic Rock, Jazz and Alternative music are performed at sunset throughout Summer. Snook, although not much of dancers, are one of the top species to catch during the same summer months from this region’s waters.
