Florida Sportsman member: dzank We ran north of Memory Rock and had a great day with various snappers and grouper, as well as the ever present ‘cuda. We actually had one barracuda rocket into the boat chasing a yellowtail, which was a bit scary, to say the least.
Florida Sportsman member: Cast&Blast I picked up another sheepshead when I look over to the back and one of the droppers is screaming. Johnny Moon was right next to it and quickly grabbed it and started what would be a lengthy battle. After a couple epic runs, we finally see color… a lot of color.
Florida Sportsman member: sandwashslugger At times, I could count ten sharks within sight. I was literally sight casting to these guys. It’s a royal pain re-tying these rigs on the beach, but as quickly as I could get another rig ready, I would be hooked up within minutes.
Florida Sportsman Member: Joe Snook I was poling around a bay and saw a big fish swimming in circles and zigzags in a small area. Luckily, the fish stayed on course and intersected perfectly with the DOA Cal Paddle Tail and two twitches was all it took to get the bite set the hook and hand the rod back to Jake.
Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer I paddled up to my next area and was greeted by literally hundreds of tails breaking a mirrored, slick, calm surface. Massive school of drum just hoover vacuuming the bottom. Gulp shrimps casted into the school didn’t last long on the bottom before they were inhaled.
Florida Sportsman member: Jirvin70 The cold fronts definitely slowed down the big snook from moving out of the bay and the water has become very turbid. Plenty of fish out there, just need to adjust tactics.
Florida Sportsman member: e-money Finally we see color and my jaw drops. It is a 73″ 74 pound wahoo hooked on just 40 pound mono and a 5/0 circle!
Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton The reef bite is growing better each day as summer is approaching. The bait on the reef is abundant, drawing into shallow water the pelagics, including mahi and tuna. As soon as the chum goes in the water, we are having ballyhoo and speedo come up, followed by a big yellow ball of yellowtails.
Florida Sportsman Member: HookemBookem We fished past the light house in St.Marks, in very shallow water near creek mouths and got in some reds. We had noticed bait fish running and figured the reds were near by. We chased them down with the trolling motor and just followed them while throwing jig heads with gulp.
