My favorite inlet is Palm Beach, where you can run 30 minutes, put the lines in and you’re almost guaranteed to catch a sailfish or mahimahi. With great wrecks, reefs and landmarks all along the east coast of Florida, we truly live in a fisherman’s paradise. Will Drost Lake Charles, Louisiana Although I have a fishing business located at Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Costa Rica, my favorite destination is right in my backyard: the Calcasieu estuary in southwest Louisiana. I was blessed to grow up duck hunting and fishing for trout and redfish, as well as chasing marlin in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. I spent many days of my youth guiding fishing and hunting trips out of the legendary Hackberry Rod and Gun Club. In the Gulf, the deepwater platforms hold all the pelagic species, particularly blue marlin and big tuna. Some of my favorites have been Australia, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica and too many others to list. It’s hard to beat the variety at the rigs, where you can catch whites, sails, blue marlin, tuna and wahoo, plus great bottomfishing as well. The Keys have the Atlantic waters on one side, and on the other, the Gulf of Mexico.

Whether we are bottomfishing or trolling, it doesn’t get much better than what we have available here in South Florida. Our coast is known for catching both pelagics and bottomfish year-round, so you can bet that if you are using the right baits, you will find a good bite close by. My favorite inlet is Palm Beach, where you can run 30 minutes, put the lines in and you’re almost guaranteed to catch a sailfish or mahimahi.
