Florida Sportsman member: rhymechizel I was trolling back to the launch spot with a jerk bait and hooked up with this pompano. One fish can change the day.
Florida Sportsman member: reeladdiction Trolled east until about 210′ and picked up a nice dolphin, followed by a thirteen pound blackfin, both into the ice box. We continued east into the bumpy seas until about 240′ where we picked up another dolphin. He had some company.
Crabs can make up as much as 70 percent of a redfish’s diet in many areas along the Florida coast. Shallow grassflats and mangrove prop roots offer ideal habitat for a variety of crabs. Redfish and many other species love to root around for these delicacies.
Florida Sportsman member: beachsideandy I got out to a patch reef with a nice 16 to 30ft drop. I netted a ton of ballyhoo to take back with me for the dolphin run up in my area. Right when I was finishing up, two cobia appeared behind the boat. One ate a ballyhoo chunk and I put it in the box.
Florida Sportsman member: Pesca Pimp Panama Inshore we had luck with pretty much everything except roosterfish! We got a number of species including blue trevalle, jack crevalle, horse-eye jack, yellow snapper, and cubera snapper. We had one monster cubera of about 60 pounds that we caught and released just a mile from our lodge.
Florida Sportsman Member: duckmanJR She lights it up, melting eight pound mono off my 2500 Diawa like butter in a hot skillet. I’m on the troller hard, trying to not get spooled. She is so fat she can only her her head kinda out of the water and flops back in.
Florida Sportsman member: landshark We deiced to make the run north. We found a crazy edge in 300-350ft of water, with a smoking north current. It went from being 2-4 to 4-6 real quick out there. The mahi were stacked up on that edge.
Florida Sportsman Member: Viking On a recent trip to Bahia Honda State Park, I was able to find plenty of areas to catch tarpon, bonefish and plenty of other varieties of fish. This video covers how to identify productive areas and the baits used to catch fish.
