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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
