Florida Sportsman Member: larrywitt Found some good bottom set out the hook and broke out the chum. Took 10 to 15 minutes to turn the bite back on. Never did go deeper as planned. oh well always a next time. Final tally 12 in the box to 25 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: MinerCatch After cleaning the boat i decide to pull an iron man now that i feel like an insomniac and decide to go fishing inshore with my buddy Ben. Ended up with a few stud snook all of which were in the upper 40 inch range and a decent 29 inch trout.
Florida Sportsman member: capcioffi Time goes on and we spot a huge rip with weeds all over it in 800 feet. We go down one side (inside) and it is not producing. Cut across the weed/rip line and the water jumps 3 degrees. In come some of the marlin lures and out goes the meat. Within 5 minutes we get hit!
Florida Sportsman Member: Jdstang50 We found a shoreline that was hidden from the wind and began to troll our way. Her fourth cast she landed this monster red. Knowing that she was satisfied, I ran back to the lift and gave the Canyon Bay a spring cleaning.
Florida Sportsman member: The BEAST Sometimes it would let them feel like they had it beat, allowing them to take in 25 or 30 yards of line, only to have the fish make a good run that stripped all that and more. This fish was doing whatever it wanted.
Florida Sportsman Member: lboverhof After being done with catching mackerel and before the tide slowly started coming back in, we started drifting over some grass between 3 to 4 feet of water behind snake. We ended up with 5 keeper trout with the biggest being 19 inches.
Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai I have never caught a pompano on a jig and don’t even know when the last time I even caught a pompano was. Third or fourth cast in hooked into something nice and what I thought was a pompano ended up being a nice sheepshead.
Florida Sportsman member: syd7792 The bass were on fire last weekend here in Valrico Lake. Bass fishing out of a boat is awesome but nothing compares to fishing out of a kayak. When you hook a bass that gives you the fight and the ride of a lifetime, it is just epic!
