Florida Sportsman member: Northern There seems to be a lot of big blackfins around right now. Unfortunately, I’m losing too many boat side in the process of trying to get them in the boat. This one was 17.5lbs, but the two lost at boat side were bigger.
Florida Sportsman member: Pesca Pimp Panama These guys got lucky as it started out slow on the first day, but we came across a pod of feeding porpoises that sure enough had Tunas hanging around them. They got a couple of real nice yellowfin tunas on live baits.
Florida Sportsman: Matt822 The trout bite has been really good as well with some fish in the 24-28″ range. I’ve been getting them on zman paddle tails, bouncing the edges of the pot holes in one to five feet of water. They usually hit it on the drop, so be ready.
Florida Sportsman member: dillon5458 Fished three different spots at KBY reef for about three hours. We only found one short sheep, but loaded the boat with some of the biggest ringtail porgies I have ever seen. They are fat. My wife picked up a nice drum. All in all great day, happy kids and wife.
Florida Sportsman member: stringwray It’s time to crappie fish. It took a while to find some willing to chew, but when I finally found them they were chewing the hooks off. The fish wanted no part of the minnows, but were more then ready for some jig action.

Florida Sportsman member: ControlledChaos We ended the morning with two sails, six mahi up to 26lbs, two kingfish, a big bull shark, a red grouper, an AJ, and short muttons. Round 2 was a completely different story.
Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer As we approached we could hear the sweet sound of croaking drum underneath us. We both put out two rods each, one with a mullet chunk and one with a halved crab. Within five minutes my mullet rod doubled over and it was on.
Florida Sportsman member: butchbal We moved to a spot over a wreck and it was on! We caught ten or so amberjack, all in the 30″ to 33″ range. We finally got a keeper at 35.5″ and decided to head in, tired, sore and happy. We had some of the flattest seas I have seen and perfect weather all day.
Florida Sportsman member: Cast&Blast River was oil slick after the rainstorm and the trout were chewing.
Florida Sportsman Member: RMD We wanted to burn more of the fuel so we headed out a bit deeper for some AJ’s. We managed to get two keepers, and could have had more if it weren’t for the giant cudas. The added bonus was four nice blackfin tunas.
