Flamingo Variety

Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton We had a great advantage with the GPS trolling motor we held over the spot without anchoring, my favorite way of fishing. After setting up, we started catching our intended target, some nice sheephead.

Northeast Wahoo Bite

Florida Sportsman member: arunram I had a great time wahoo fishing with Capt. Jerry Moulton aboard his boat Another Tangle last weekend. We had four nice wahoo at 60, 50,50 and 40 pounds. We also caught a bunch of triggers, pinky, AJ and a limit of bees to go with it!

Sunshine Bass Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: RealSeabee Finally got back on the fresh water today after chasing Reds for a few days with my Son on the Lagoon. The sunshine bass did not disappoint taking them on the troll with 10 pound tackle is a blast and they do burn some drag.

Grouper Hunting

Florida Sportsman Member: Mako224 We cleared the Pass at 7AM and tried to locate bait. Nothing around the pass so off we went to 30 feet and caught pins, grunts and sardines. Then off we went to 100 plus feet.

Boynton Bite

Florida Sportsman Member: John McKroid Landed one nice almaco in 460 feet, hooked right on the bottom. Continued to drift north while dragging a flat line bait and vertical jigging inwards from 480 to 180 feet. Metered some fish on the wreck just north of the inlet, but luck was not with me, I missed a fish on bait and got bit off on the jig the first pass.

Mutton Bite

Florida Sportsman Member: nightfly We had a spot far away were this time last year we were catching large mangroves. We had the bait and the weather to do it, so we went for it. We got there and bottom machine looked great. Right away the bite was on, lots of muttons, one after the other.

Catching on the New Boat

Florida Sportsman Member: StandOutI2I saw a fish tailing so I told mom where to look and she saw the fish and made the shot. Without me telling her where and boom, fish on! A solid fish at 27 inches and was her first real fish that she has sight fished.

Skinny Water Sight Fishing

Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer The water is crystal clear in most spots I went to and I got to watch every one of em clobber the lure. No heroes but it’s awesome to see them eat whether they are 3 pounds or 30 pounds.

Manatee River Reds and More

Florida Sportsman member: Bassin Assassin A few minutes later a pretty copper-colored rat red inhaled my bait. I needed to size up, so I kept paralleling the shoreline. Reeling in a few minutes later and my lure got blasted, I set the hook on something solid that had some weight.

Muttons and More

Florida Sportsman member: gdholbrook Forum member gdholbrook had some luck off of Miami recently. Drifting and fishing live pilchards over productive bottom was the ticket.

A Trip to Remember

Florida Sportsman Member: zmanwhite Day three we headed out and by 9am we have already released 20 fish. Around 11:30 a 600 pound plus blue crashes the left flat ballyhoo and all I can do is grab the rod with Brad yelling “big marlin”, lock it up! I looked at Brad, he looked at me and says “this is a big girl.” When he says that, it’s for real, again well over 600 pounds.

Fort Pierce Inshore

Florida Sportsman member: Capt. AW The river bite is on fire. With the cooler weather the river plummeted into the high 50′s low 60′s depending on locations and tide. I prefer fishing midday low tides when it gets this cold. We have been beating down the docks, mangroves, flats, and catching a nice mixed bag.

Islamorada Wahoo

Florida Sportsman member: Captain Easy We loaded the bait wells and headed just offshore of the reef in the 140 foot range to start fishing. Flat calm seas, glowing blue water, and a very strong current are all great wahoo conditions and we had them all. That and the approaching front coming later that evening seemed to have the wahoo’s fired up!

Southwest Offshore

Florida Sportsman Member: Veikx We have had a solid bite on amberjack in nearshore on the artificial public numbers, the largest we landed was right in the 40 pound range. Mangrove snapper have also been hot, we landed about a dozen up to 18 inches nearshore. The kings have been hit or miss throw a free line out there and you may get a straggler!

Port Canaveral Offshore

Florida Sportsman member: tonytaliv My son and I left Bluepoints at 7:30, seas were big and a little confused so it was slow going out but put lines in at 120 and within 10 minutes had a nice mahi.

Ending the Season Right

Florida Sportsman member: Alex from GA After a snotty run out Louie gave me his best trolling plug and after a very few minutes a nice grouper came onboard. A few more minutes and another was gaffed by Louie.
