Inshore Fishing What's Biting Now


Sarasota Snooking

Sarasota Snooking

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.

Panacea Redfish

Panacea Redfish

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.

Snook

Slammin’ Snook

Florida Sportsman: capt.nate The bite started slow, but after the first fish ate, it was on like Donkey Kong! That first fish happened to be a 38″ beast of a snook! They caught fish, after fish, after fish for four solid hours.

Indian River

Indian River Variety

Florida Sportsman member: landshark The next fish is one that I have been trying to get on all my wade trips and it has eluded me every time. Rich pulled up this fat mama trout in the 24-26 inch range.

Mid-Bay Drums

Destin Drums

Florida Sportsman Member: PanhandlePoon We caught two upper slot keepers at the Mid-Bay Bridge this morning and a hand full of rats in the bayous nearby. We also released a pair of over slots and a black drum.

Keys Tarpon

Florida Sportsman Member: kmagnuss In three nights of fishing we jumped 37 tarpon, 14 were landed. Out of the 37, all but two were over 50 pounds. I would estimate that at least 25 of them were over 80 pounds.

Everglades Inshore Slam

Everglades Inshore Slam

Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami That day we were working mostly small artificials on light spinning gear. Out near the coast, Randy tossed a 1/8 oz lure up against a downed tree and we were off to the races with a nice slot snook that fought all the way until I was able to grab it for a quick photo. It measured right at 30″ and was Randy’s first snook ever.
