This section describes some of Florida's most popular freshwater fishes and offers angling tips and identification information. Keep in mind, the freshwater fish you're looking for may be a Nonnative species. If you catch a big one, check out our Big Catch angler recognition program. Most illustrations are by Duane Raver, Jr., (see link for a CD of his artwork).
