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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
