Beaches that allow fire

Does anyone know any good beaches for shark fishing that allow you to build a fire at night? Preferably in the South/Southeast section

    I believe that all the state park beaches allow bonfires on the beaches in their enclosures that you get a reservation for...

    In my limited experience, I've never stayed in a FL state park that allowed a beach fire. That said I found the following which appear to not only contradict each other, but also me and Schmidty. I suspect the answer here is whether or not the beach has fire rings.

    An evening campfire is essential to a great state park camping experience. While there is a statewide burn ban on open campfires, fires contained in commercially-designated apparatuses such as grills and embedded metal fire rings are still permitted. Remember to take caution and ask a park ranger if in doubt. For more details, visit the Florida Division of Forestry’s website at www.fl-dof.com.


    Also keep in mind that during turtle nesting season, you won't be allowed to show any light on the beach. Better bring both your fishing lawyer and your campfire lawyer.
