Florida Sportsman member: NIghtOwl We picked up some blue runners at the sea buoy and ran out to 850 feet. Saw a free jumper and trolled the area but could not raise him. Stopped the boat by two weed patches pitched a livie, spro jig, and ballyhoo plug.
Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami There were so many tripletail at this spot that a half dozen at a time would come up after any jig we tossed at them. My two anglers that day limited on a pair each for the table, while releasing a half dozen more on the same small lures.
Florida Sportsman Member: clarosa Slowly but surely the mango’s started coming over the rail. Got a few in the 6 to 7 pound range but the bite was kinda slow. Every once in awhile the flatline I leave out for tuna would get nailed and ended up being AJ’s just about every time, got a couple in the 25 to 30 pound range.
Florida Sportsman Member: barhopperAD Catching mullet paid off, first cast was a 26 inch red. Little bro was catching rat reds left and right. The water got higher and action got slower. So we moved around explored a little to find a fishy looking cove with lots of activity and that REALLY paid off.
Florida Sportsman member: spydermonkey We stopped at Gandy and got some shrimp in case I couldn’t find any greenies on the flat. Got to the flat about 8:30 and started off with topwaters. I was throwing a livetarget mullet and my dad was throwing a spook in mullet coloration. After about 20 minutes I hooked up with a nice redfish.
Florida Sportsman member: Alex from Ga The first third of the float didn’t amount to much catching just trying to avoid all the canoes and kayaks. After the big shoal the fishing started to pick up with a bunch of bass caught. No big ones but some nice largemouth and suwanee bass.
Florida Sportsman member: Veikx Nailed a nice 21 inch mangrove right when I made it to the bottom as he was quite curious to see me. Shortly after this beautiful hog presented himself and landed a good stone shot. Picked up a few more hogs and mangroves through out first and second dives.
Florida Sportsman member: dpdash Found great conditions in 200′ and put a couple of ballyhoo’s out. Ended up finding an incredible edge with huge mats and flyers in 600′ with nobody around. After 15 minutes we found a few dollies and a little tuna for sashimi.
Florida Sportsman member: former bluefishinny Rising tide yielded a topwater redfish for Mark pretty quick. The wind picked up, and we decided to hit East Bay. I was rewarded with a topwater red as well. And a few minutes later, a snook to complete the slam.
Florida Sportsman Member: larrywitt Dropped a marker at the first number Med. spin rods 14 pound flouro leader, small no 2 circle hooks, squid for bait, grunt bite was instant. Most were small and sent back. After chum had been out for about 30 minutes or so I decide to drifted a shrimp back (keys style) just a small split shot , open bail just feeding the line out with the slick.
Florida Sportsman member: Shel That spot fired up immediately and I pulled up a 31 inch amberjack. Lee followed that with a stud red snapper and over the next hour or so, we put some decent fish in the box. I decided to fire down a special livebait and within minutes, had a very nice 25 pound plus gag grouper on the line and in short order, in the fishbox.
Florida Sportsman member: DolphinTailin We leave the weed patch and head off to the Southeast and not too far off we find a big blue crate just under the surface, As we pass the crate we look behind the boat and see tons of dolphin greyhounding through our spread, three guys on the boat and all four rods go down.
