Angling Florida waters is a blend of open oceans and seas to bays, beaches, brackish water rivers, creeks and streams, which make up inshore Florida. A demarcation between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean noticed only by a thinly spread of islands, known as the Keys and its exceptional styles and varieties of fish caught either on land or onboard. If you need it, Inshore Florida at The Reel Deal will get it; outboard/inboard motor parts to any angling gear you cannot find; also carrying a small but select inventory of products to aid you in catching fish within and beyond Inshore Florida. Looking for an adventure to remember and cherish for a lifetime, kayaks to backpacks, a journey in Florida green, providing you with a free no fee charter guide referral service from offshore big game to inshore whatever and backcountry drifting trips too. Kayaking the inner secrets of Florida’s estuaries and mangrove-lined creeks to canals, where you, like the Indians of yesteryear once paddled quietly across the skinnies in search of his quest. Exotic birds to alligators on the waters; a photographic moment waiting to be caught in time with Inshore Florida-Offshore Wherever, helping you find what you want while visiting us here in the Sunshine State and becoming a better steward to your marine surroundings and practicing CPR when ever possible (Catch, Photograph and Release).

Florida: Gator Hunt Season: Aug. 15 - Nov. 1, 2008

One Permit Allows Two Kills
Alligator hunting permits go on sale June 3, as approximately 45-hundred permits will be available for the season, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The season runs from August 15 through November 1, with permits sold on a first-come, first-served basis from June 3 through June 9. Each permit allows one hunter to kill two alligators.
Permits for Florida residents cost a little over $270.00. Nonresidents pay slightly more than $1,000. Each additional permit costs about $60.00 regardless of residency. Applicants have the option of applying at any county tax collector's office, license agent (retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing licenses), and at MyFWC.com/license.

To educate participants on the rules and regulations of the hunts, the FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training and orientation program, held at various locations throughout the state. Permit recipients are not required to attend, but first-time participants are strongly encouraged to do so. Courses held in July and August, and permit holders will receive, by mail, permit packages listing dates and locations.
