Florida Sportsman member: chut03 Used primarily topwater rubber frogs for the snakehead, and the biggest bass attacked the frogs too. Peacocks on lipless crankbaits, and livebait. Plus one catfish on a rubber worm strangely enough. and even a needlefish that took a jig.
Florida Sportsman member: Real V Forum member Real V got into some nice Charlotte Harbor snook recently. The tactic used for these linesider was hopping D.O.A. Terroreyz along the bottom around bridge structure.
Florida Sportsman Member: ripnlips For the past few weeks we have been seeing fish transition from Summer patterns to Fall patterns and this means that they are in the mood to eat. Now is the time to get out on the water and take advantage of it.
Florida Sportsman member: Ruff one She wanted to hit some nasty bottom area in 15 feet, so we were off. It seems like we pull a trophy gag out of this spot every time we visit it. Guess what? We didn’t have the plug in the water 1 minute and Gail’s rod is screaming!
Florida Sportsman member: Angler170. We were greeted with a beautiful sunrise just before the current began to slow and the fish began to fire off! We started the morning off with a 42 and a 38 inch fish. we then had one break 60 pound leader and another pull the hook.
Florida Sportsman Member: harbison Whenever cold fronts move into the gulf the pressures starts to plummet, this causes the fish to go into a feeding frenzy because they know the coming storm will stir the water and prevent them from feeding easily.
Florida Sportsman member: Reef Bandit Motoring a few hundred yards, we all readied. It didn’t take long to find out that the next spot was loaded with big red snappers. We caught them one after another. The only problem was that they were out of season so we had to vent them and let them go.
Florida Sportsman member: ShallowSalt Biggest score of the week was a 19.5 pound blackfin tuna caught on 20 pound spin gear while drifting. We began to see the big boys skying about a quarter mile behind the boat and eventually they worked their way close enough and took a drifting bait behind the boat.
Florida Sportsman member: snookcook I prefer to fish at night or in the evening mainly to avoid the sun. Plus, the night time is the right time! The docks have been holding tons of trout and snook. The tarpon are here in huge numbers in the river and on the beach.
Florida Sportsman Member: Oldfloridaangler We were also joined by a few skittish tarpon, that were darting in and out of view snatching the baits as they frantically evaded the frenzy. The reds openly accepted anything with a bronze or new penny color.
Florida Sportsman member: bighardey We put the lines back out and slow trolled at 5 knots and about 11:15 on blue & green Islander skirted ballyhoo the hoo hits hard, heads deep. Yanked her back to the boat nice and easy, gaffed and put in the box. It was a super day and good to be back.
