There’s room to explore on these largely unfished Osceola County lakes. It’s The Rodney Dangerfield Chain O’ Lakes. Right alongside the magnificently named and fun to say Tohopekaliga, it dares names like Coon, Lizzie, Center, Trout for God’s sake, and Alligator, like that’s a species you don’t often find in lakes.
From the duck blind to the redfish flats for an extra dose of cold season action. Ask most sportsmen about the action on Tampa Bay and they’ll say it’s a “blast.” Practically speaking, that colloquialism usually starts with a “cast” to snook, redfish, trout and the like.
Tripletail offer a curious challenge to the fly angler, and they are available around the state. Days and nights of stiff northeasterly winds had hampered our attempts to venture into the windblown Atlantic for more than a week. But now the long wait had ended with the arrival of calm winds and moderate ground swells.
Big rewards lurk under big bridges—if you’re prepared. The same fastidious thought needs to go into a night bridge-fishing expedition as an offshore trip. I admit to being a bit lackadaisical about safety when fishing a foot-deep grassflat far off the beaten-boat path.
Maverick Boat Company raises the bar again by adding another technical poling skiff to their popular HPX line. The new HPX-S sports an all new hull design that has exceptional performance in super skinny water and addresses some of the running issues associated with other shallow water craft.

The Bahama 41 has a LOA of 41-feet, 3-inches and beam of 11-feet. With the same computer-aided tooling and all-composite construction as the smaller boats in the Bahama fleet, the 9,500 pound hull can support four 350 horsepower outboards and carry up to 634 gallons of fuel and 65 gallons of fresh water.
Feel the urge to hunt? Now’s the time to give standup redfishing a shot. When kayakers ask about sight-fishing for giant Indian River Lagoon spotted seatrout, most recommend they stay seated and content themselves with casting. Redfish may be another story.
