AREA RECREATION - Steinhatchee has been a famous fishing destination for generations, with freshwater and saltwater fishing year-round. Great fishing can be found both inshore, offshore and on the fly for big catches of redfish, grouper, sea trout, flounder, black bass, snapper, cobia and more. During the summer at Steinhatchee, scalloping takes center stage. The Steinhatchee area is known as 'Florida's Scallop Capital,' as the Gulf waters make an ideal habitat for these delicious shellfish. Scalloping season typically opens July 1 and ends September 24 each year. Other popular recreational opportunities in the area include bird watching, hiking, hunting, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, cave diving, nature photography, and visiting the many state parks in the area. Boat rentals and charters are available through the local marinas.

About Kim Fisher
Mark and Kim Fisher. We live in Gainesville, FL and are originally from NY. We have 3 teenage boys that love fishing and scalloping.
Kim Fisher purchased this house in 2007
Why Kim Fisher chose Steinhatchee
We've been coming to Steinhatchee since 2003. Our kids have practically grown up here! The fishing and scalloping are better than anywhere else! We were fortunate to be able to build this house in 2007, and we make the short trip from Gainesville whenever we can!
What makes this house unique
Fisher's Cove is a beautiful 'home away from home' for vacationing, fishing, scalloping, or just taking a break from everyday life. It's very relaxing and a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We love coffee on the front porch overlooking the river. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. And of course, the fishing and scalloping!
