Salt Springs in Florida is a beautiful place to observe fish in crystal clears waters. It is worth the steep $5.50 per person to see the fish here. You can see wild bass feeding on schools of mullet right in front of you at this historic site. The site has been visited by humans since at least 10,000 BC when paleo-Indian people harvested snails and other resources here.

There are three large boils at Salt Spings. The minerals from the spring and the algea create splatters of color on the rocks around the boils. Many fish and birds congregate here. Some species observed are black bass, florida spotted bass, striped bass, chain pickeral, tilapia, mullet, bluegill bream, redbelly bream, shellcracker bream, gar fish, and even blue_crabs.

*It is important to note that there is no fishing allowed in Salt Springs recreation area where the actual spring boils are. You can go a half a mile south to the Salt Springs boat ramp to get to Salt Run.
