Florida seems to be synonymous with quality fishing. From Lake Okeechobee to Roland Martin, and everything in between, the state’s status as a premiere fishing destination—mainland and offshore—is generally a given among the fishing community. If you’ve always wanted to head to Florida to take advantage of the reputation that it has for offering a variety of fishing opportunities, or even if you’re just looking for a new fishing lodge for your next trip, I’d suggest looking into this month’s Getaway, the Rainbow Bend Resort.

Resting on Grass Key, in the heart of the Florida Keys, the Rainbow Bend Resort, where anglers will discover the true spirit of Keys fishing during their stay, has a lot to offer any guest. Surrounded by the shallow flats that are home to such prized species as bonefish and tarpon, anglers will have ample opportunity to target these fish from either a boat or even off the resort’s dock. At night, the dock is even lit so that diehards can get in a little night fishing. The resort also has a fully-equipped bait and tackle shop, for those anglers who may find themselves in need of equipment. Furthermore, guests of the resort receive a half-day’s use of one of Rainbow Bend’s Boston Whaler boats, or the complimentary paddle boats, both of which will make any fishing experience much more enjoyable.

As far as accommodations go, Rainbow Bend is home to one or two bedroom oceanfront suites, or one bedroom efficiencies. All rooms are equipped with kitchens. There is a private beach that overlooks the ocean, as well, where guests can relax. Your stay also includes a full breakfast each day, which is served in the resort’s beachfront restaurant, the Hideaway Café. The café overlooks the water with amazing views from every table and offers many items, including lobster, whole roasted duck, crepes, and even local seafood pulled right from the nearby waters. The café is a popular choice for romantic dinners, as well, due to its intimate setting and incredible selection of wine.

Other activities at the resort include kayaking, boating, snorkeling, and a therapy spa. These amazing options have caused the Rainbow Bend Resort to become one of the Keys’ most desired lodges, for anglers and vacationers alike. The Florida Keys are renowned for fishing action, as well as their relaxing destinations, so why not have both during your next trip? The Rainbow Bend Resort has exceeded at making sure that, no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll feel right at home during your stay.
