Snook in the Canal

42″ Mega Snook in the Canal

Florida Sportsman member: harrisa2006 She put up one incredible fight. I knew this was going to be a good fish, but when she partially surfaced and I saw her tail, I could not believe me eyes.

Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton The yellowtail bite was really good, we were targeting them shallower than usual. We also caught some keeper muttons and a nice grey, all in the same spot. We got there close to 9:am and by 10:30am we had close to a five man snapper limit, which we managed to complete, along with a few macks, bonito and a barracuda.

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.

Florida Sportsman member: 23T Almost each cast with a live shiner into the sun got some action. The double header with my dad was the the highlight of the trip. Also had plenty of largemouths as well.
