Dade City resident Richard Clinton now holds the record for catching the largest brown bullhead catfish on rod and reel in Florida waters, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
This imitation of a successful lure works just as well when tied as a fly. All veteran redfishermen are aware of how effective weedless spoons are on reds. Jon Cave knew this as well and wanted to transfer that success to flyfishing.
Florida Sportsman member: aaron I saw something that looked like a massive sheepie sitting under a mangrove, so I landed my fly on its head and it ended up being about 5 medium to nice sized ones. They all swarmed my fly and I hooked up after one strip..
Florida Sportsman member: FISHHUNTR I scanned to the south I saw a tern circling, so I headed over there. Once there as soon as I shut down we see a gaffer cow swim behind the boat which promptly inhaled the greenie we pitched out. Decided to just drift some livies and over the course of 35 minutes we pick up 2 more gaffers.
Florida Sportsman member: surferjs01 Surprisingly, we have been landing a lot of bulls lately. As well as tips, spinners, and even lost a large hammer a few nights ago. Sharks are averaging in the 6 foot range, yet we’ve been catching them up to 7.5 feet (bull). Bait of choice has been live/ freshly cut ray.
Florida Sportsman member: LitiGATOR The mate gaffed the fish and a beautiful mutton hit the deck. I don’t know if Juozas had ever caught one before, but I believe it was his first on the Yankee. At 10-years old, on his first trip out here. That’s impressive. You couldn’t wipe the smile of his face.
Long sticks catch crappie! Cane poles, jigging rods and crappie poles, often more than 12 feet long, are highly effective for catching tasty crappie when these fish are in shallow water. But Florida anglers may find that a fly rod is the most versatile and best crappie stick of them all.
Florida Sportsman member: redpro Bite wasn’t on fire but we managed a good meat trip. Passed a nice rip around 130 feet that made us wish we were trolling. Caught our limit of beeliners to 4 pounds and some nice triggers, one almost hitting 8 pounds!
A fan favorite of inshore anglers stages a comeback in the Gulf. From where I was standing, in the bow of Walker’s tidy center console, Christen’s catch was the happy conclusion to a dramatic fishery management story. Twenty years ago, the future of blacktip shark looked bleak, mired in commercial overfishing.
