Chasing Tarpon, Catching Snook

Florida Sportsman Member: lmp1978 I went to Dania cutoff canal, looking for tarpon and I end it up catching this beauty. 39 inch snook, this guy was happily released back in the water.

Cobia Chaos

Florida Sportsman member: Pangaman The small cobia raced to the jig and grunts before I could get a bait in front of the big one. I caught and released 3 more cobia on the jig and pitch rod before I was able to get a bait in front of the big one.

Smallies Up North

Florida Sportsman member: Docked Wages We managed to get on the water yesterday on Lake Mille Lacs to target small mouth bass and managed to pull lips on a dozen or so and lost a few too.

Port Canaveral Dive

Florida Sportsman member: Bluewaterfever Went diving on Pelican Flats today with Randy and Matt. We had 20-30 feet of visibility and nice warm water. We managed a few grouper, hog snapper, mangos triggers and sheepshead. Came home with box full of good eats

Keys Swords

Florida Sportsman member: out of the blue We went to work and after a short battle placed a 50 incher on the deck. My spell had been broken and it was my buddy’s turn, unfortunately we pulled the hook on the next bite and then we caught a big mako in 1700 feet of water, we let that one go as it was only 1130 am and no point on putting that on the deck.

Marco Island Inshore

Florida Sportsman Member: snookerf150 I put in at bay view at 7am and ran out through the pass and headed north. Shut down and waited and within a few minutes there were pods of bait everywhere, one throw and I had bait for days.

Miami Jig Bite

Florida Sportsman member: angryangler Ray shrilled “it’s a warsaw!” already dreaming of how many different ways he would prepare and eat the fish, my kids will eat for days! High fives all around and the boat was rocking, group pics and all.

Giant Drum in the Northeast

Florida Sportsman member: Richardbloom All a sudden the fish started screaming but it was going up current not down. After a fairly short fight the beast showed itself and had me panicking. Biggest redfish I’ve ever seen and it was barely hooked. The second she came next to my boat I grabbed her by the gill plate and almost got pulled in trying to lift her.

Redfish Riot

Florida Sportsman Member: cbmdk86 These reds lost their minds when they saw that plug, I had one red of at least 45 inches come completely out of the water about a foot above the surface trying to dismantle my plug. It was epic action to say the least.

Peace River Snook

Florida Sportsman member: Snookaddict91 Forum member Snookaddict91 got into some nice snook while fishing the peace river. Fishing the shorelines for these fish, it can be a blast pulling them out of the sticks on spinning tackle. Nice fish!

Puttin’ Them in the Air

Florida Sportsman member: E-type Forum member E-type got some killer Gopro video of some fun size tarpon. What’s better than a tarpon jump? A tarpon jump in slow motion!

The Trout are Chewin’

Florida Sportsman member: Snookslayer772 September is here and so is the bait! The finger mullet schools throughout the South Indian River are the ticket. Fishing these schools with topwater lures and suspending twitch baits below the schools have been great.

Big Bend Grouper Bite

Florida Sportsman member: StandOutI2 First drops down and all we were hooking up with was lady fish, grunts, and some small grouper. Moved over another 75 yards and found what we were looking for. For several hours, as soon as the bait hit the bottom it was getting eaten.

Panhandle Reef Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: Capt. Mickey Locke We fished around 200 feet both days. The jacks wrecked us the first day but ended up with 3 nice fish and 18 groupers. The next day was a tough bite on the jacks for us but we ended up with 2 nice fish and limit of grouper.

Kingfish Fun

Florida Sportsman Member: Bonecracker My daughter came home last week after doing a 3 month internship in New York City and she needed some boat and beach time badly before heading back to UGA. Trout and redfishing has it moments in August (mostly bad) so I decided to load up on some tasty bait fish and head offshore for some action.

Catching a Mountain of Fish

Florida Sportsman Member: harbison Three P.M. friday afternoon, Madeira Beach is under a severe storm warning. As we board the Florida Fisherman ll at Hubbard’s Marina, we can not help but wonder will this overnight trip produce, ‘A Mountain of Fish,’ or be a complete wash-out?
