Flood Tide Fun

Florida Sportsman member: Black Clouser We had some pretty high flood tides and calm conditions today and it was a perfect time to get out in the grass. The highs for this morning was the great surface slurpee bite on gurglers just awesome takes.

East Central Slammin’

Florida Sportsman Member: duckmanjr I think I see a red up really shallow. I make a slow approach and notice one of those tiny shorebirds standing nearby and when it takes off, it scares the red….dang it! I toss out in the direction that the fish spooked and boom.

Wahoo from the Kayak

Florida Sportsman Member: John Mckroid I caught this fish on the first live goggle eye bait in the water, drifting in 200 feet of water off Boynton Beach.

Pine Island Variety

Florida Sportsman member: slobouf I stopped in the creek across from Pine Island to catch more bait. I got lucky and caught a nice ladyfish while netting some mullet at sunrise. We went south and found a few places that looked fishy. By 9AM, (2 hours of fishing) we had five 22 to 24 inch redfish and a nice 25 inch trout.

Southwest Grouper and Snapper

Florida Sportsman Member: larrywitt Bait was shrimp, squid, fish heads from my last trip and cans of chum. The bite was steady on the lanes and short reds and mangos the two keepers came on lane fish heads.

Port Everglades Sails

Florida Sportsman member: Ghostrider Motored out through a sloppy inlet and headed south to do some slow trolling. Setup in 150 feet off of Hollywood. Within the first 10 minutes, we were 1 for 2 on sails and had a cutoff from a king.

Reds, Snook and More

Florida Sportsman member: Binder We dropped the powerpole and “fired out” some baits. Within minutes we had a double hookup on a redfish and a snook. We re-baited and casted in the same spot, another red.

Tournament Winner

Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai By sunrise we were anchored up with baits all over the place, fishing was slower than anticipated. Sat there for a couple hours with one short strike to show for. About 8:00am we got the bite we were looking for, stripping nearly 500 yards of line we were able to stay tight and get the fish next to the boat.

Fort Pierce Tripletail

Florida Sportsman member: Capt.AW Forum member Capt.AW has been on some nice tripletail in the intracoastal. “Been running the markers the past few weeks. Gulp shrimp, jerk baits, and live shrimp on a jig head have been the baits of choice.”

Taking the Kids Fishing

Florida Sportsman Member:releasegear By the time I got the wire rod down and blue runner on he was out of site so I tossed him straight off the back, 5/0 circle hook, 12 inches of 90 pound wire , 50 pound flouro leader and 50 pound braid on a Shimano Baitrunner. Thirty seconds later the wahoo explodes on the runner, shooting out of the water like a missile.

Fishing the Middle Grounds

Florida Sportsman member: minnowsnmonsters The run out to our first stop was a 96 mile stretch that we made quick work of by taking turns at the wheel, and before we knew it we were in 130 feet of water at our destination. The current wasn’t bad at all so we started drifting this area of structure, dropping a combo of live baits and Boston mackerel.

Stiltsville Flats Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: Gary M A fishing trip with Capt.Carl Ball with AWOL Fishing Charters was won in a raffle, so Saturday was the day! Tom and his 15 year old son Thomas met Capt. Ball at the ramp at Crandon Marina.

East Central Offshore

Florida Sportsman member:Kapt. Hook There’s been a lot of african pompano around on the ledges. The cobia have been small lately but in good numbers. Snapper have moved out and left the bottom a cold ghost town. Not a lot of bait on the beaches or the buoy. Live pinfish and mullet are the best bet for live baits right now.

Trying Something New

Florida Sportsman Member: WATERTIMEinshore I continued on seeing a lot of nice pushes along the banks most were mullet but finally saw one that looked a little bigger. Pitched him the Gulp and boom 32.5 inch red worked me good for a few minutes. Pretty much was the highlight of the morning and as usual got hot things slowed up so we called it a day.

St. Marks Redfishing

Florida Sportsman Member: tailwaters Sunday we did a little better, landing 22 fish (give or take). Most measured in the mid 20’s with one going over slot. It was top water early, then spoons and plastic twitch baits as the tide rose. Around 10am we switched over to pinfish. Had to get off the water by noon both days due to the heat.

Miami Spearfishing

Florida Sportsman member: boneheadhunting Long story short it took almost 30 minutes to get that black out of that cave. Once we got it out I went back down to see it again and was amazed with how far back it went. After that we made some short work out of some muttons and decided to head in.
