Stuart Snookin’ with a Bonus

Bringing Home Some Trophies

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!

Shrimp Dunking with the Wife

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.

King Cuda and Friends

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.

The Quest Achieved

Florida Sportsman member: Sea Snake I gave it a little hook set and the fight was on. I could tell she was a good sheep, by the bucking, and couple that with her trying to use the current, well I just took her easy.

Pompano Jigging with a Surprise

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.

Kayakin’ for Largemouth

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!
