What's Biting Now

West Central Offshore

Florida Sportsman Member: clarosa I made a quick statement, after the bite slowed down “if we get a nice tuna now, we can just go in and forget the last two snapper”. Not 5 mins later, the big freelined pinfish rod’s baitrunner went zinging! After a 30 minute battle, a big blackfin is circling the boat ready for the gaff!

Offshore How-To

Organize Your Hooks

One of the keys to successful live bait fishing is matching the size and style hook to the bait you fish. Regardless of whether you catch or buy your bait, baits vary in size from trip to trip. That’s why we’ve developed a hook box system so that we are always prepared to find the right hook for the bait at hand and the species of fish that we are targeting.

World Cat 295

All of this additional square footage of cockpit lets the manufacturer add in features normally reserved for much larger vessels.
