If surf fishing is your thing then Bowman’s has you covered. You can expect snook, sheep’s head, shark, redfish (red drum). Tarpon Beach can come close to shore during the summer months.
Saltwater fly fishing is also great along Bowman’s Beach. As fly fishing is more of a visual experience, you can cover long distances walking along the beach whilst casting. Snook are the main attraction for fly fishermen and women. Fly rodding for snook is good all year but the best time to find them along the shoreline is between May through October just as long as the water is warm. You may also be lucky enough to land a tarpon, sea trout or redfish.
