Florida Sportsman member: creekgeek We finished the day in the same spot my dad landed his big fish and my 11 year old, Marina, connected with her best red ever. She wanted to give the rod up as the big fish made several long runs on light tackle and with the help of a strong outgoing tide.
Florida Sportsman member: Ruff One Headed straight to a rock in 15 feet and deployed the plugs, Carolyn’s rod goes off and she’s into one of the beast that makes this area home. I look out back and there’s a grouper herd following the boat. I pitch a jig and another beast inhales the jig.

Florida Sportsman member: Veikx Nailed a nice 21 inch mangrove right when I made it to the bottom as he was quite curious to see me. Shortly after this beautiful hog presented himself and landed a good stone shot. Picked up a few more hogs and mangroves through out first and second dives.
Florida Sportsman member: micci_man Five minutes later I get home and before I pulled in the drive the front door was opening. She was ready to look for her deer. We go to the plot and she shows me where he exited the plot. We take up the blood trail that she showed me and 45 yards later we found her deer.
