Turkey Hunt

Turkey Hunt

Florida Sportsman member: shemp He puffed up to strut or gobble again, gave me a shot window, put his head up when I finalized my aim, and he went down stone cold.

Offshore

Offshore Fishing Varitey

Florida Sportsman Member: Capt Dan Medina We stopped in 85 feet over some good live bottom. We caught vermilion, lanes, and an endless supply of 18-19 inch red grouper. We only managed one keeper at 23 inches.

Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay Action

Florida Sportsman: Matt822 With the arrival of spring water temps a little early, it appears the bite has woken up over the last three weeks with tons of snook on the flats and schools of redfish covering the mangrove lines. The last two weekends I was able to get them on top water baits early in the morning, then switched to green swimbaits or paddle tails.

Paddling

Power Plant Paddling Pt.2

Florida Sportsman Member: palmbeachpete Here is a video of the later part of the Boils trip that I made with Danny. We ran into a few sharks on the way in.

Doctors Lake Bass

Doctors Lake Bass

Florida Sportsman member: Splitshot Syndicate Decided to use artificials on the Northeast side of the lake to get out of the wind and maybe bend a rod. The bait was popping and there were fish around, but only managed one three pound bass on a New Penny Gulp Shrimp on a 1/8 oz jig in one foot of water.

St. Lucie Snook

St. Lucie Snook on Fly

Florida Sportsman member: snookcook Been catching snook and trout on fly at night. Also, the snook bite in the day has been great. Plenty of snook around eating live mullet, shrimp, and artificials.

West End Fishing

West End Fishing

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.

Jetty

Jetty Variety

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.

Grand Bahama Conch

Grand Bahama Conch

Florida Sportsman member: dzank We ran north and we got into a nice bunch of mangos and muttons. We dove up some conch on the way back to Bootle Bay.

Surf Fishing Sharks

Surf Fishing Sharks

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.

Clearwater Fishing

West Clearwater Fishing Variety

Florida Sportsman Member: releasegear We decided to stay at 45 feet and caught lots of grunts, gags, one goliath and six hogs.

Redfish

10K Big Redfish and More

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.

Winter Mixed Bag

Big Bend Winter Mixed Bag

Florida Sportsman Member: AZ2FL All fish were caught with either Zoom Super Flukes, Z-man Paddlerz, Strike King Spinnerbait, Slayer Inc. Paddle Tails and Rapala Skitter Walk & X-Rap Twitchin Minnow.
