What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: Coydog Didn’t get it into the boat, broke the hook off. After redoing the tackle, threw on a new chunk of grab, waited about 15 minutes or so and this guy started to peel off line.
Florida Sportsman member: 23T Forum member 23T caught this nice sail out of port everglades, While trolling for dolphin.
Florida Sportsman Member: bugdoc Got another runner, then a few drops later I felt something a little larger. Got it about 60 feet off the bottom and it suddenly realized it was hooked, and drag started peeling out straight down. Finally pulled up a 28 pound amberjack after about 15 minutes.
Florida Sportsman member: sam50 Well next thing you know we got 12 inches of water in the boat and sinking, as this whole boat is a live well. King gets close and we see a shark on it, makes a run under the boat and is wrapped up in the motors now.
Florida Sportsman member: Bassin Assassin Rather than take me right back under the dock and break me off, the fish heads for deeper water at high speed. Rookie mistake by a big fish. The fish comes up tail-walking away from me. It is a beast!
Florida Sportsman member: remo_5_0 Forum member remo_5_0 Shared his recent trout fishing trip in Wyoming. A change of pace from what Florida has to offer to fly fishermen. Beautiful fish!
Florida Sportsman member: Captain Bill Curtis After the first 2 baits got stolen, the third was the charm when the large threadfin got hammered and a giant snook broke the water when the circle hook came tight. My angler did a stellar job of leaning on the fish, with the 20 pound braid, as it raced to the mangrove roots hoping to escape.
Florida Sportsman Member: syxx I’ve been fishing tarpon since the first week of February and we’ve had pretty good early season fishing but now the real big schools are showing up. Just a few days ago we had a 5 fish day with most fish in the 60-100 pound range.
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: 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: 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.
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.
