Florida Sportsman member: Morocco_Madness Took my cousin out on Monday to attempt getting him on his first salt water fish. He immediately hooked up into a solid 7 pound sheepshead, He was stoked. Unfortunately, he was projectile vomiting the rest of the morning and it wasn’t long before we had to call it a day.
Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton I put out my new hoop net and ended up catching a load of ballyhoo for the well, with the bait secured, I rigged a butterflied ballyhoo and sent it down for my customer. Two minutes later he got his first mutton of the day.
The recreational harvest season for snook closes Dec. 15 in Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, and will remain closed through Jan. 31, 2014, reopening to harvest Feb. 1. Snook can continue to be caught and released during the closed season.
Florida Sportsman member: Bass2bucks There’s no doubt those bigger fish are staging and about to move into spawn, it’s just a matter of time before the lake pops off and those big 30 plus pound bags are brought to the scales. We did manage to catch probably 20 to 30 fish and only one bigger fish at 5 pounds.
Florida Sportsman member: Top Contender Fished a little farther out this time in 380 to 465 feet, caught tilefish, snowy grouper, kitty mitchell grouper, scamp, gags, red snapper, AJs, bar jacks and porgies. This is my first kitty mitchell grouper, so I wanted to share it!
Florida Sportsman member: fishdish She tried to pass the rod to me but I told her it wasn’t happening. The only help I gave her was I tightened up her drag a little and held the boat still with the pole. 5 minutes later we had a 25 inch red on board!
Florida Sportsman member: BryanC That was pretty cool to see, and I thought we were kind of lucky to land it with 10 pound mono & no leader. A couple minutes later his line goes off again, and it’s another permit! After that everyone started to copy what he was doing and we ended up catching a total of 5 permit over the span of 45 minutes.
Florida Sportsman member:renovator In between dives we fished and loaded up with some nice fish, threw back a few red snapper, and got a scamp at the end of the day. 4 lobster made the trip back to the dock as well. Found some new bottom numbers to boot.
Tricks to take big bream on fly. Several years ago, I caught a mixed bag of four dozen bluegills and shellcrackers during a single, glorious afternoon. While that was practically all the law allowed, the real kicker is that these fish weighed close to a pound apiece.
Florida Sportsman member: Gary M The next time the bottom rod when off, I knew that I had a real fish. When I finally saw “pink”, I no doubt grinned as it was my favorite fish, a nice Mutton Snapper. I netted him and he measured out at 19 inches. The fish box instantly got a lot better looking!
Florida Sportsman member: Snookslayer772 throwing Mirrolure lil jons on 1/8th ounce jig head just hopping them through the grass, and that was the ticket! second cast with mine, boom, a trout. After that it was every other cast catching them.
