What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: e-money Forum member e-money posted a solid report with a stud 58 inch, 46 pound cobia to top it off. Great fish!
Florida Sportsman member: Flats Blue 96 Then out of no where a huge red cruised by, so I tossed my greenie off the back of the boat and put out some slack line. I started to reel it in thinking he had swam by when my drag started screaming. Got my personal best red in the boat after a couple minutes and he measured 38 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: DKT First time out in almost a year, neck and back surgery suck! Even though conditions weren’t the best I was stoked just to be out. All in all it was a good day, got to use a new rod & reel I’ve been couch fishing with and caught a few fish.
Florida Sportsman Member: cbmdk86 Assumed that this was my tournament hopes down the drain, and made my way back to the truck, but after a 17 mile round trip and 6 hours of fishing time, my little dink trout proved enough to secure the victory! Brought it home despite the stiff competition of 175 other competitors, with a good number of them in skiffs. Proof positive you can go out and be successful with just the bare minimum!
Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai Went 2 for 7 yesterday. First fish ate a grunt and second fish was pulled off of a school of 4. It ended up being the smallest of the school. Fish went 46 pounds gutted.
Florida Sportsman member: ReelDeep Forum member ReelDeep has been getting into a mess of fish off the Miami beaches including bonefish, snook and tarpon.
Florida Sportsman member: Robert D. Forum member Robert D. shared a video he put together of him spearing some cobia, not only did he get into the fish, you can also see how these fish interact with rays and each other under water. Good stuff Robert.
Florida Sportsman Member: larrywitt Found some good bottom set out the hook and broke out the chum. Took 10 to 15 minutes to turn the bite back on. Never did go deeper as planned. oh well always a next time. Final tally 12 in the box to 25 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: MinerCatch After cleaning the boat i decide to pull an iron man now that i feel like an insomniac and decide to go fishing inshore with my buddy Ben. Ended up with a few stud snook all of which were in the upper 40 inch range and a decent 29 inch trout.
Florida Sportsman member: capcioffi Time goes on and we spot a huge rip with weeds all over it in 800 feet. We go down one side (inside) and it is not producing. Cut across the weed/rip line and the water jumps 3 degrees. In come some of the marlin lures and out goes the meat. Within 5 minutes we get hit!
Florida Sportsman Member: Jdstang50 We found a shoreline that was hidden from the wind and began to troll our way. Her fourth cast she landed this monster red. Knowing that she was satisfied, I ran back to the lift and gave the Canyon Bay a spring cleaning.
Florida Sportsman member: The BEAST Sometimes it would let them feel like they had it beat, allowing them to take in 25 or 30 yards of line, only to have the fish make a good run that stripped all that and more. This fish was doing whatever it wanted.
Florida Sportsman member: Sea Snake I gave it a little hook set and the fight was on. I could tell she was a good sheep, by the bucking, and couple that with her trying to use the current, well I just took her easy.
Florida Sportsman Member: lboverhof After being done with catching mackerel and before the tide slowly started coming back in, we started drifting over some grass between 3 to 4 feet of water behind snake. We ended up with 5 keeper trout with the biggest being 19 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: Captain Easy On Saturday we took out Greg, George, Eric, Jomal, and Lynn and released 32 amberjacks all between 30 and 75 pounds as well as a dozen almaco jacks and banded rudderfish.
Florida Sportsman Member: tron1.8 Then this one took my DOA glow shrimp with my 6 pound line. Ended up being 30 inches long, one of the biggest I have caught in a long time!
Florida Sportsman member: SnookStack Early Saturday morning I headed out to the Sunshine Skyway to see if the Kings were around. At first light I got my first ever landed Kingfish. Being a flats fisherman this was quite the experience!
Florida Sportsman Member: harbison Ms. Lisa Shouron, Tampa, refuses to let a little moisture rain on her day. Lisa, fishing out of spot number 10, shows that nice cobia who the boss really is, after all, Lisa is all woman!
Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai I have never caught a pompano on a jig and don’t even know when the last time I even caught a pompano was. Third or fourth cast in hooked into something nice and what I thought was a pompano ended up being a nice sheepshead.
Florida Sportsman member: syd7792 The bass were on fire last weekend here in Valrico Lake. Bass fishing out of a boat is awesome but nothing compares to fishing out of a kayak. When you hook a bass that gives you the fight and the ride of a lifetime, it is just epic!
Florida Sportsman member : psless Made it to about 165 feet and saw some weed lines so we began trolling. Fairly early in the morning we snagged this beast on a mono leader. Hook was barely in his mouth when we gaffed him!
Florida Sportsman Member: Doc1 A couple of buds and I ran out of Marco about 20 miles this morning. The bite was slow, but steady. We picked up 4 keepers over the 4 hours we fished. The largest was about 24 inches and was caught on a live blue runner.
Florida Sportsman Member: KayakMacGyver At the first hole it was game on from the first drop and we proceeded to load the boat with the giant humpback Seabass I’ve been hearing about.
Florida Sportsman member: troutman57 A few more blackies and some decent grunts rounded out our catch. Only 2 red grouper were under size and were released along with all the gags.
Florida Sportsman Member: Tailingreds05 We caught the last two hours of the falling tide and that’s when I picked up this chubby tailer with a well placed live shrimp. Had two other shots on the falling tide but couldn’t get them to eat. After the mid morning slack wore off and the tide started pushing in, the fish started showing themselves again.
What a day! A kids’ fishing rodeo was held in conjunction with the Crappie Masters Florida State Championship over the weekend (Feb. 2) in Sanford.
Well once again I got the invite to join Paco Saca and his sons in the 18th International Marlin Tournament in El Salvador! Bart and I made are way down to Bahia Del Sol Marina and Hotel [...]
