My favorite place in North America without a doubt has to be the Louisiana delta offshore. This is where I grew up fishing and had my first experience with a big fish in deep water. There is no place in the U.S. where I have caught more variety or sheer volume of fish in a single day or period of days.
Cape May New Jersey - hands down. Great offshore action for Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin and Bluefin tuna, plus wahoo, mahi - it's all good! Great onshore fun, too...lots of great restaurants and bars; plus great bait and tackle shops and marinas full of guys who get out there and get 'em.
Venice Louisiana is hands down the craziest place I've ever been fishing... We fished over there in '05 with Capt. Mike Ellis who runs Relentless Sportfishing and it was unreal!
We caught more tuna than you could shake a stick at, one went 105#, caught a stupid amount of dolphin all over 20#, and we had 4 different shots at marlin and we were never even targeting them.
I've tuna fished offshore Port Canaveral several times and it doesn't hold a candle to the fishery out of Venice!
Palm Beach, FL
Its got it all:
Sailfish, Dolphin, Tuna, Swordfish, Snapper, Tarpon, Snook, Bass & Peacock bass (a bit south)

Port Aransas, TX - Redfish on the fly over and over again!
As I said in the "Outside N.A." survey, Costa Rica is on the N.A. Continent, so I'll say Quepos, CR.
Middle and lower banks off Baja. Standup fishing for Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, grouper, and yellowtail. Good stuff.
Got to say Ocracoke NC. 12 miles of prestine nature. Great fishing no matter what season, and no boat required. Can pull in 48 + inch Red Drum almost anytime of the year. Offshore is a haven for Mahi and Yellow fin, even Marlin. Does it get better?
My home waters in St. Augustine. Kayak fishing for tailing reds in the back of creeks. in the summer throw the kayak in the truck and run the beach looking for schools of bait holding tarpon, bues, reds and kingfish. Year round fishing and all you need is a kayak!
