If one of your passions is to head out on a boat into the deep water and go salt-water fishing, and you are looking to buy a vacation home, then you should make sure you choose a location that has easy access to the ocean. There are many great places around the country, but this list will be localized to the east coast. So big names that might be recognizable to deep-sea fishermen won't be discussed here. Many people want a vacation home close to their main property, so if you live on the East Coast, you might want a house you can get to without flying across the country. Here are two great spots. One is in the Northeast, and the other is in the South.
If you like the idea of owning a place in one of the coolest cities in the country, Miami is the place to look. It's got a fantastic beach, awesome restaurants and nightclubs, and also really amazing saltwater fishing. There are large marinas located on Miami Beach (which is a peninsula located across the Biscayne bay, separating Miami from the Atlantic Ocean). Miami is a large area where you will find single-family homes, though in neighborhoods such as Coconut Grove there are also luxury, high-rise condos. If you want to live on Miami Beach, you will find that this area consists almost exclusively of hotels and condos.
The area is a saltwater fisherman's dream. You can head out into the warm waters and fish for marlin, shark, and sailfish. The other great reason to buy a home in the Miami area is that you can store your boat at one of the marinas or could just head out on a fishing charter while you are in town. The area is full of fishing-charter companies. You could take advantage of some of the extended trips they offer and head down to the keys or even into the waters around Cuba.
Sag Harbor, New York
If you live in the Northeast and want a vacation home closer to you than Florida, then consider Long Island. In particular, you should look into Sag Harbor when you're seeking homes for sale. This is a really beautiful area on the southern shore of Long Island. It is part of area known as "The Hamptons," but this area is not as pricey as some towns in The Hamptons, such as Southmapton and Sagaponack, where homes can run into the many millions of dollars.
While most people love the beach, restaurants, and nightlife, you will love the easy access to deep-sea saltwater fishing. You can dock your boat at one of the marinas in Sag Harbor Bay and then boat out east, past Montauk, and deep into the Atlantic Ocean.
