Matlacha Topwater

South Matlacha Topwater Action

Florida Sportsman member: offshore22 After the tide turned, it was party time. Trout on topwater is truly rewarding. I landed four nice keepers and lost a monster which easily could have been 24-26″. Caught about half a dozen others. My go to lure of choice is the Yo zuri 3db pencil. It casts far, tracks well and catches everything.


St. Augustine Snapper

St. Augustine Snapper Are Hungry

Florida Sportsman member: capcioffi We went to two different areas out there and caught three triggers, four red eyes, and over 40 snapper. I mean, the things are eating little pieces of squid two-three inches short, that we cut small trying to get trigger and vermilion. The snapper were eating rigs before we could get to bottom and the bigger the bait the bigger the snapper.

Winter Fly Fishing Florida

Head for cover when it’s whistling. Stalk the flats when it’s not. Saltwater fly fishing isn’t always about sun-baked flats kissed by light winds, and bathed by sparkling warm water and battalions of tailing fish.
