Fishing on Suwannee River

There are few activities in life as fulfilling or relaxing as enjoying some quality fishing, and if you can do it in such a beautiful place as Suwannee River then that is even better!

Here at Suwannee River Rendezvous, anglers can enjoy some of fun in the sun right alongside this famous river as you try to catch some of the most sought-after fish in the area. There is plenty of great fishing to be had with Suwannee bass, largemouth bass, channel catfish, blue gill, sunfish and more up for grabs within the river’s waters.

Fishing is a splendid way to bond with your loved ones or just get away from it all and spend some time soaking in the glory of nature as you let your worries slip away. It is also a chance for the little ones to experience a connection with nature that they just can’t get in the real world. But don’t take our word for it – check out our gallery of fishing fun featuring adventurers of all ages!

Fishing on Suwannee RiverNo License? No Problem!

As with all forms of hunting, some restrictions and regulations must be met. When fishing here in Florida, a fishing license is required – most of the time, anyway, as the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers a few days each year for license-free fishing. The free freshwater days are the first Saturday and Sunday in April and the second Saturday and Sunday in June, so if you’re thinking of making a trip from out of state on those dates, make sure to bring your poles and fish without needing a license. Don’t forget: Fishing restrictions still apply on those dates, so be sure to review the state rules on catch and size limits.

Plan a Hunting or Fishing Trip at Suwannee River

The beginning of hunting season is a holiday in many parts of the country, and here in Florida there are many great seasons to consider when it comes to opportunities to hunt and fish.

For example, this past year at Suwannee River Rendezvous, we had had a great season of hog hunting, with guests coming from all across the country – and of course from throughout Florida – to enjoy a successful season of hunting wild hogs. If you’re looking for a different hunting experience this year, come join us down at the resort to take part in this fantastic sport.

There are also trapping seasons, archery seasons and small game seasons so that you can hunt a wide variety of wild birds and small animals or test your marksmanship with a bow. Learn more about the full range of regulations and hunting season dates from this Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission brochure for the Mallory Swamp area.

Fishing in FloridaIf you’d rather fish, the Suwannee River is perfect for that, too. We have fishermen come back with big catches nearly every day, ranging from bass to catfish to sturgeon. In fact, we have some sturgeons that weigh in at more than 200 pounds, though you can’t keep them. They do, however, make for a great photo and an even better story that you can tell by the campfire.

Located in Mayo, Florida, about halfway between Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Suwannee River Rendezvous serves as a getaway for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Some of our guests love the outdoors so much, they’ll drive their RVs to the resort and spend their days exploring the Florida wilderness or stalking wild hogs while enjoying nights at the campground beneath the stars.
