That's up in the pan handle. Not the best area for reef creatures, but you can probably find snails or hermits. The best places are in the southern region.Like from where I live in the Sarasota/Bradenton area on the west coast (Siesta Key is our prized beach) and probably from west palm beach (East Coast) down to the keys are the best for fishing depending on what you are looking for.

Shells are fine just make sure they are not a creatures home since some are illegal to harvest, I go to the beach all the time and nab shells to glue frags on. Rocks and other items are illegal to take in the state of Florida. Each beach is different so ensure you look at your beaches regulations before harvesting! Enjoy and welcome to the sunshine state!

Be careful. I brought home a cute tiny little crab that my grandkids caught. He was probably about 5/8" diameter. Next thing I know he's the size of a nickel and scrapping with the fish for food. Then he decided the fish WERE food. My LF found him a home in an aggressive fish tank.

you may want to check with Florida fish & wildlife first , because if you get caught with something you shouldn't have you can face big fines and possible jail time ,

Yeah, he's right about the Lionfish. They completely invaded and are causing major issues with our wildlife.

I went to Cape San Blas last year! It was beautiful. A storm had just come across the area right before we got there, so there were LOTS of tide pools and TONS of young fish in them. I also literally bumped into a shark when I was in the water, but still.

Here is the legal info you will need:
Recreational Harvest of Marine Life (Aquarium) Species

You will need a license. I bought a non-resident 3-day saltwater fishing license.

and good luck! If you think fish are fast in an aquarium...just wait haha
