Florida Sportsman member: surferjs01 Surprisingly, we have been landing a lot of bulls lately. As well as tips, spinners, and even lost a large hammer a few nights ago. Sharks are averaging in the 6 foot range, yet we’ve been catching them up to 7.5 feet (bull). Bait of choice has been live/ freshly cut ray.
Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami Four more times I had the leader but the fish was still way too strong. Finally Neil’s rod broke at the base ferrule and it was all I could do retrieve the broken portion, which had slid down the leader to the fish.
Florida Sportsman member: LitiGATOR The mate gaffed the fish and a beautiful mutton hit the deck. I don’t know if Juozas had ever caught one before, but I believe it was his first on the Yankee. At 10-years old, on his first trip out here. That’s impressive. You couldn’t wipe the smile of his face.
Florida Sportsman member: redpro Bite wasn’t on fire but we managed a good meat trip. Passed a nice rip around 130 feet that made us wish we were trolling. Caught our limit of beeliners to 4 pounds and some nice triggers, one almost hitting 8 pounds!
Florida Sportsman member : ownleme Found a great rip in 330 feet with a 3 degree temperature change 73 to 76 degrees, scattered weed line, and ripping current on the east side. First strike before 8am and kept coming. At one point I had just put one in the box, had one still pulling on another line, and tossed my alien head at its shadow to hook up with 20 plus pounder.
Florida Sportsman member: Captain Ross With our adrenaline back up, we repositioned our boat and made another drop. This time using a Black 18 inch Hogy Soft Bait, just over the nose, we threaded a small pink octopus style skirt and added a squirt of pro cure scent.
Florida Sportsman Member: Doc1 A couple of buds and I ran out of Marco about 20 miles this morning. The bite was slow, but steady. We picked up 4 keepers over the 4 hours we fished. The largest was about 24 inches and was caught on a live blue runner.
Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai Could’ve moved around to a few more spots to try and catch the rest of our Aj limit but out backs were already hurting and the big one was more than enough so decided to call it a early day. Only picture worth taking the camera out for was the Amberjack so that was the only picture taken all day.
Florida Sportsman member: beeuclothing Got a short break from school so ran down to Key West for a couple days of spearing. All footage shot freediving with Gopro hero 3, guns used were a Koah Euro 130 and Rob Allen 1300. Hope you like it and thanks for watching!
Florida Sportsman member: Docked Wages After we were convinced that no cobia were in tow we broke off pursuit and stumbled across a school of redfish. It took me a while and finally I got one to eat! This being my personal best redfish on fly. He got so far into my backing I got really nervous about breaking the line or pulling the hook.
Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai With the heavy current and little bigger bait we were using a little heavier tackle and 6 ounce weights and they were barely holding bottom with the current. Ended up catching one red on the smallest rod and reel and smallest bait.
