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.
A 7.7-pound bass and a blistering score of 18-under par took top honors at Florida Sportsman’s Bass & Birdies Classic. The unique excitement of combining golf with fishing prior to the annual ICAST show proved to be popular for 60 participants from the fishing industry.
It’s a timeless question stemming from hunters’ ongoing fascination with whitetail racks. Why do some develop differently than others? Recently Florida Sportsman Member Batemaster posted this photo of a Hendry County buck for fellow Members to analyze.
If you’re new to saltwater fly fishing, determining what flies you need for a destination trip can be a daunting task. Although there are numerous variables to consider, a few basic principles can simplify the selection process and reduce the size and number of fly boxes you have to lug around.
Sketchy low tides and a minefield of oyster shell? No problem for these Northeast Florida kayakers. Edward Abbey once said if you want to see the desert, get down on your knees and start crawling. Kayaking is the boating equivalent, with fish and other wildlife only inches away.
Florida anglers know it’s not always a fish-eatfish world out there. Vegetarian fish lack innate regard for the ingenuity lavished on modern sportfishing tackle and artificial lures. Florida’s fresh water hosts a few such ingrates, whose office it is to torture young anglers, frustrate them with their large bodies and small, declining mouths.
Besides their willingness to bite when other fish won’t, catfish are crowd favorites at fish fries. The farm-raised channel cats, in fact, are among the few seafood offerings I find consistently satisfying at restaurants. Shrimp, salmon, lobster, and saltwater catches of the day such as mahi and grouper seem to arrive at my table in varying and unpredictable degrees of freshness and doneness—usually over-doneness.
