Whether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller parcel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to help attract wild turkeys to your property …
This imitation of a successful lure works just as well when tied as a fly. All veteran redfishermen are aware of how effective weedless spoons are on reds. Jon Cave knew this as well and wanted to transfer that success to flyfishing.
Florida Sportsman member: aaron I saw something that looked like a massive sheepie sitting under a mangrove, so I landed my fly on its head and it ended up being about 5 medium to nice sized ones. They all swarmed my fly and I hooked up after one strip..
Sight fishing from a paddle craft is fishing and hunting rolled together. Having a paddle hit the side of your kayak as you put it down will send the fish south of the border before you can even get a cast off.
Two ways you’ll know if your bilge pump system fails. One of them isn’t pretty. No matter how much we use our boats to fish and cruise there is one place where they spend lots of time: at the dock. A boat is four times more likely to sink at the dock than at sea.

Florida Sportsman member: kmander3 We flipped minnows under corks for a couple hours and picked up 8 Crappie the biggest went 14 inches, and 1 Warmouth. We certainly didn’t crush it but Dad had been wanting some crappie which is what we got him.
Florida Sportsman member: Big Bend Brian The largest one walked away with the second following it and I thought I had blown it but the smaller one worked its way out of the palmettoes. This time I didn’t wait and took the shot as soon as it presented a chance. At the shot it dropped.

Thousands of of wrecks, thousands of fishing spots and countless fascinating tales.
Pre-assembled leaders with loop connections are the bomb. A bout of fishing for little tunny several years ago quickly taught me to use my current favorite leader system, the two-piece leader.
Florida Sportsman Member: kayakling This is one of the two biggest fish I have ever caught from my kayak. I tail grabbed it into the yak and then had to paddle (couldn’t peddle with the tail up around my neck and the head blocking the peddles) over to shore to measure and photograph. I measured as best I could with it in the Hobie and wound up with somewhere around 43 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: FISHHUNTR I scanned to the south I saw a tern circling, so I headed over there. Once there as soon as I shut down we see a gaffer cow swim behind the boat which promptly inhaled the greenie we pitched out. Decided to just drift some livies and over the course of 35 minutes we pick up 2 more gaffers.

Florida Sportsman member: surferjs01 Surprisingly, we have been landing a lot of bulls lately. As well as tips, spinners, and even lost a large hammer a few nights ago. Sharks are averaging in the 6 foot range, yet we’ve been catching them up to 7.5 feet (bull). Bait of choice has been live/ freshly cut ray.
