Florida State Statute 790.33 (http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=Ch0790/SEC33.HTM&Title=->2008->Ch0790->Section%2033#0790.33) states (in pertinent part):790.33 Field of regulation of firearms and ammunition preempted.--
(1) PREEMPTION.--... the Legislature hereby declares that it is occupying the whole field of regulation of firearms and ammunition, including... ownership, possession, and transportation thereof, to the exclusion of all existing and future county, city, town, or municipal ordinances or regulations relating thereto.

(b) As created by chapter 87-23, Laws of Florida, this section shall be known and may be cited as the "Joe Carlucci Uniform Firearms Act."
thanks MR blandings It just all confuseing and allways the fine print stuff thats makes us not understand.........
very simple in FL:
Signs mean nothing.
If it's not on the list of restricted places in 790 then by all means carry.
Worst that can happen is a private business can ask you to leave (same way they could if you were being disruptive) or fire you if you work for them.
Your response seems to indicate that you are only considering CCW, as "the list of restricted places in 790" usually focuses on those places where one cannot lawfully CCW (FSS 790.06(12) (http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=Ch0790/SEC06.HTM&Title=->2008->Ch0790->Section%2006#0790.06)), however one should remember that under EXTREMELY LIMITED circumstances it is lawful to CC or OC in Florida without a CCW. As the OP's post mentioned fishing, which is one of those extrememly limited circumstances, it's a point worth remembering/considering.
*Note: While lawful per FSS 790 in EXTREMELY LIMITED circumstances I do not recommend CC without a valid FL CCW. The arrest and bond alone will likely cost you more than the $117 for a permit. Same pretty much goes for OC only the CCW doesn't cover that.
