Florida Sportsman member:sydngoose
We hit channel markers and pilings from the inlet up the intercostal. Number one circle hooks and very small leaders (6 inches of 15 pound flouro) was the ticket. We ended up with six nice sheeps but two absolute STUDS, at 10.25 pounds and 7.20 pounds.

Inshore How-To


Basic Florida Seagrass Facts

A primer on the favorite flats habitat. They say Inuit people can identify seven different kinds of snow. There are almost that many kinds of sea grass on Florida’s flats, but if you can tell the difference between just three varieties, it’s likely to make you a considerably better angler.

Inshore Gear

Egret Mambo Mullet

Egret Baits recently released a new line of baits to their line up, the Mambo Mullet. Similar to the existing Vudu Shrimp and Vudu Mullet, these baits are made of TPE plastic, making it very durable. The reverse hydro cups on the bait allows for a great side-to-side wobble when reeled.



Wintertime Trout Fishing

Winter is a great time to target trout, but the setting and methods may differ sharply around the state. According to our updated Florida climate data in the 2015 Fishing Planner, average low temps for the month of December differ greatly from one end of the Florida peninsula to the other.

If you want a bay boat to run at bass boat type speeds, then this hull with a high-performance pad bottom will give you the exhilaration you’re looking for. The sleek hull design is more than just aesthetically pleasing; it has the completely flat deck you would normally associate with a flats boat but the higher freeboard that bay boats are noted for.

Having an offshore fishing boat doesn’t mean you have to compromise on family features. At the bow are twin-padded lounges that allow you to face forward while underway. Remove the cushions and backrest and the long insulated compartments below the seating become fish boxes.
