Solving the jumping enigma with flies. When you think about it, the “game” in gamefish says a lot about a fish. It helps explain why one man’s grunting and sweating aboard a drifting sportfisherman seems so far removed from another’s grilled swordfish in a restaurant.
Florida Sportsman member: snookslayer772 Doa Terroreyz has been a major go to with the colder water, bouncing bottom in the deeper holes and ledges. The pompano bite has been pretty good, find 66 to 68 degree water and you should be in them, as well as a good tide, higher the tide, the further they push back, and a lot of people don’t realize this.
Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton We have been getting limits of yellow tails each day and today we did get grouper and a nice cobia to ad to the 4 man snapper limit. The current is stronger to the North as of today. bottom bite picked up or should I say, we didn’t miss the bottom fish, because yesterday we lost 8 bottom fish.

Team BAR South took the top title with 12 releases, sending them home with a $157,170 payout.
Florida Sportsman Member: Veikx Live pilchards were the go to bait, we had bought a some shrimp to try for any hogfish as well. The bite picked up after we put in a chum block, with smaller fish around 13 to 14 inches. The larger ones starting biting as soon as we brought out the grill and cooked some hot dogs!
Florida Sportsman Member: Cavanaugh68 The spotted seatrout are thick along the drop offs and ledges. However the big boys, the gators, are back in deep thick backcountry waters. Searching the white holes or sand spots and always keeping in mind your posture, bait movement and signs of their presence.
Florida Sportsman member: cflcycleparts The water temp was a bleak 70 degrees, our only hope was to make it into the warmer waters of the stream. We make our way out to the cones about 30 miles out and find 74.99 degree water. It’ll do. We happen to run by some debris including a floating log with weeds around it, and then pandemonium.
Florida Sportsman member: zay I hit the creeks this past weekend to see how the trout bite was and it was on fire! We found most of the bigger trout early in the morning. I tried to fish deeper water in the icw mid day but only came up with dinks.
