Top Fishing Locations in the Southeast

September 04, 2015

The United States of America is a country of anglers. From average Joes to U.S. presidents, it seems like everyone in the country is casting a line. East to west, north to south, every region of the country has some world-class fishing, so we’d like to start a series of the best fishing spots in each part of the U.S.

First up: the Southeast.

Whether you live in the South or get the chance to visit, let’s take a look at where you should go with your rod and reel.

Florida Keys

From the southern edge of Florida’s mainland to Key West, the Florida Keys are one of the most stunning, vibrant, and action-packed fishing locations in the world. You can cruise along the flats in search of bonefish, permit, and redfish, or you can go out to the reefs and wrecks for yellowtail, barracuda, and more. You could even head to the deep sea for dolphinfish, marlin, and other open-water predators. With such a wide variety of fishing options, the Florida Keys are one of the top fishing spots in the southeastern U.S.

Louisiana Bayou

With miles upon miles of flowing freshwater, wetlands teeming with life, and saltwater fishing only few miles away, the Louisiana Bayou is a great place for anglers of all varieties. You can go to the freshwater areas to search for fat bass and whopping catfish, or you can take an offshore boat into the Gulf of Mexico to catch some of the best yellowfin tuna in the world. In the coastal shallows, you’ll also be able to target active redfish and other species, making the Louisiana Bayou a great stop for any angler in the south.

Toledo Bend Reservoir, Texas/Louisiana Border

The construction of the Toledo Bend Dam was a joint effort between the governments of Texas and Louisiana, damming the Sabine River and creating a lake that spans 185,000 acres and holds 1,200 miles of shoreline. The dam produces 92 megawatts of power, but anglers will be more interested in the world-class bass fishing. The reservoir has continually gained ground as a top lake, and was named the #1 bass fishing lake in the country for 2015 by Bassmaster Magazine.

Lake Guntersville, Alabama

This 70,000-acre lake has been a staple among bass anglers in the south for years. It hosts some of the most prestigious bass-fishing events in the country, and is almost always part of the Bassmaster fishing series. Huk’s very own Skeet Reese took home a victory at Guntersville with 25 pounds worth of Bass in one day. There are lots of bass in this lake and plenty of local guide services who would love to help you catch a trophy.

Pamlico Sound, North Carolina

With North Carolina’s mainland to the west and a string of narrow islands to the east, Pamlico Sound is the perfect breeding and feeding water for a wide variety of saltwater fish. From shallow flats to offshore fishing, the area is a haven for anglers who want a variety of options. It’s one of the best places in the world to catch mullet, sheepshead, redfish, and shark.
