Florida Sportsman Member: john martin I heard some yelling from the stern which turned out to be a young kid who landed Gag over 30lbs. Excited I fired down another and bang! Hooked up again with what I knew was another nice Gag. I had him ¾ of the way up when a Goliath Grouper nailed him.
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.
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.
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.
There’s a chill in the Florida air, and soon children will be out of school on winter break. During the holidays, I encourage you to take time off from work and spend some quality time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
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!
