Florida Sportsman Best Boat – ActionCraft 24 ACE, Sea Chaser 26LX, Glasstream 280 Pro-XS

In this episode of Florida Sportsman Best Boat: Shallow draft, and ability to handle rough water, the ActionCraft 24 ACE is capable of both. The length and beam of the Sea Chaser 26LX allows for nearshore and light offshore fishing. Light weight construction allows the Glasstream 280 Pro-X to be powered light, but perform excellent.

Hollywood Beach Kayak Fishing

Florida Sportsman Member: John McKroid I vertical jigged throughout the morning and afternoon for only a handful of small Little Tunny and big Blue Runners. One of my trolled baits was hooked up from above. On one of my final passes through the fishy zone, a nice King Mackerel skyrocketed on my surface bait.

Key West Kayak Fishing on Fly

Florida Sportsman member: kayakerinkeywest I’m not much of a fly guy, but I knew this spot was action packed because at the moment the flats are packed full of glass minnows and pilchards. Any spot where the current running over the flats dumps into a channel, there will be fish waiting.

New Port Richey Fishing

New Port Richey Fishing and Spearing

Florida Sportsman member: grey2112 About 15 miles northwest of New Port Richey, temps around 68 so a bit chilly in a 3 mil and crappy hood. Water vizibility about 15 feet vertical and 20+ horizontal, and little cloudy. It was very fishy – the gags are all in now, and on both drops we saw tons of jewfish.

Canal Casting for Bass

Florida Sportsman member: ReelFinsFlorida After fishing several miles with a few fish here and there, we finally found an area where the fish were schooling up and biting! Jerk baits and the gambler EZ swimmer were the key lures. Overall we put together some nice decent bass to end the morning!
