Blind Casting with a Fly Rod

If conditions aren’t suitable for sight-fishing, you can improve your odds of catching fish by limiting the search area and, like a good chess player, thinking a few moves ahead.

Action on the Kites

Florida Sportsman member: Angler Management The bait guy had nothing for me being so late, So I threw the net on some decent size mullet. Headed out with three happy folks on a nicer day than what was expected. We had non stop kite action on dolphin inside the green water/rip line temperature change in about 75 to 85 feet.

Kayak Bar-Hopping

There are no overpriced drinks, no shaky sound systems, no shallow conversations. But when inshore anglers long for entertainment seasoned with diversity, many turn to bar-hopping.

Daddy & Emma buck 2 small

Youngest’s First Deer

Florida Sportsman member: huntmstr “Emma, get the gun. It’s a buck for sure,” I whispered. I stuck the barrel out the window and Emma laid across my lap as she trained the scope on the deer’s torso.

cobes

A Pleasant Surprise

Florida Sportsman member: Captain Ross We went out last night fishing the incoming tide. Hoping to find some big snook and tarpon, but had a hard time getting our baits through…COBIA? Wound up landing 3 up to 30 pounds and broke off another pig. The cobia bit best on slack tide using Hogy HDUV Black/Purple Flake Paddle Tails on 1 ounce Jig Heads.

Release 208 RX

Maybe a smaller boat is a better fit for your driveway and your budget – the Release 208 RX fits the bill. Just because you choose a shorter hull doesn’t mean you have to give up the features you want. A molded fiberglass inner liner with bow seating, stern seating and in-deck storage give you the feel of a much larger boat.

Secrets to Tracking the Best Hunting Leases

It’s peak season to begin finding a backwoods getaway to call your own. Here’s how to do it. The exchange between the landowner and the hunter can be difficult to navigate. Finding a lease, evaluating the property and negotiating terms all have their challenges. But finding a good lease is possible.

Trout, Out and About

Despite the fun fishing we were enjoying, the Indian River and associated Mosquito Lagoon and Banana River have been in a sad state of affairs for a while. Three or four years ago, this slender, 150-mile long waterway on Florida’s east coast was full of rich seagrass. But starting in 2010, the grass began dying off in unusual patterns, preceded and followed by algae blooms locals had never seen before.
