Since the arrival of Ponce de Leon in the 1500s, the Florida Keys have evolved from a dense, nearly impenetrable jungle full of bears, pumas, snakes, alligators and crocodiles into America's Caribbean islands. And the fish in the region have made the Keys one of the nation's favorite playgrounds for anglers, according The History Press and author Bob T. Epstein of Crossville. The Keys are home to more saltwater fishing records than any other angling destination in the world and offer sportsmen an array of amazing fish, from tarpon and Spanish mackerel to mahi-mahi and bonefish. U.S. presidents, celebrities and the world's greatest fishermen and women have cruised the waters of South Florida. Epstein has authored a new book, A History of Fishing in the Florida Keys...Anglers Paradise," which is a journey through the storied history of fishing in the Florida Keys. Epstein is holding a redfish, which is a red drum sportfish found throughout Florida shallow water flats.
