Fishing is allowed as long as we’re “consistent with social distancing guidelines.”
So it’s ok to go fishing by yourself, or with your family, but avoid groups of people.
You can read the document here, and check out a screenshot from it below.
It’s also important to note that individual counties have the option to close their boat ramps, so if you want to know which boat ramps are open, check out this article about Florida boat ramp status.

Whew, at least we can still fish. Thanks Tony for getting it straight from the “horse’s mouth” . Not sure if all the bait shops are open, but you still can get frozen shrimp at Walmart and like for 5 bucks 80 pieces in meat dept. What you don’t fish with, you can eat later..lol
No problem Charles! Yes bait shops, boat ramps, etc. can close, but you can’t close fishing! Great tip for getting some shrimp. I am personally staying away from grocery stores and other places that are open because of the crowds. Artificial for me!
Do you have to have a license still or did they stop that temporary?
As far as I know you still have to have a fishing license.
Thanks Tony! Good info! Except I am stuck in NY now..missing FL.
No problem Andrew!
how about can bait shops be open ?
That I’m not 100% sure. I talked to one bait shop owner and he says they are considered an essential business because people can buy live or dead bait to feed animals. I would give them a call to confirm.
I own a shop in Lee county and he is wrong. We are not in list and bait is not lisenced as food. If a shop has a food lisence then they would be more likely to be open
