Hot Redfishing

Florida Sportsman Member: Billy It was a little slow at first but then as we warmed up so did the fish. I started off with three keeper reds and a trout before we decided to move. Duane, not to be out done, adds three more keeper reds in the boat.

Green Turtle Adventure

Florida Sportsman Member: dpdash One day at Manjack, we had a turtle come up to the boat. We see turtles almost every dive but have never had one come so close. We ended up hand feeding this one squid and he hung out for almost 20 minutes, very very cool!

Reel Time with Florida Sportsman



Century 2600

The family will love the bow with its padded lounge seating and removable cocktail table. The front seat of the console rounds out the conversation pit and below the cushion is an insulated drink cooler. Step down inside the center console to find a pottie and dry storage that extends under the deck.

Fly Fishing


A Step Above the Others

Fly fishing for summer tarpon from a unique perspective. I’ve caught many fish from the comfort and stability of my ladder long after the sea breeze swept waves have chased the others away.



Scout Trip

Florida Sportsman member: Big Bend Brian Five Venture scouts and 4 adults from Venture Crew 288 of Ponte Vedra Beach left early Thursday morning for Steinhatchee (2.75 hours away) to try their hand at scalloping. Seven of the nine Venturers had not scalloped before and a couple had never snorkeled before either.
