What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: aaron I saw something that looked like a massive sheepie sitting under a mangrove, so I landed my fly on its head and it ended up being about 5 medium to nice sized ones. They all swarmed my fly and I hooked up after one strip..
Florida Sportsman member: kmander3 We flipped minnows under corks for a couple hours and picked up 8 Crappie the biggest went 14 inches, and 1 Warmouth. We certainly didn’t crush it but Dad had been wanting some crappie which is what we got him.
Florida Sportsman Member: kayakling This is one of the two biggest fish I have ever caught from my kayak. I tail grabbed it into the yak and then had to paddle (couldn’t peddle with the tail up around my neck and the head blocking the peddles) over to shore to measure and photograph. I measured as best I could with it in the Hobie and wound up with somewhere around 43 inches.
Florida Sportsman member: FISHHUNTR I scanned to the south I saw a tern circling, so I headed over there. Once there as soon as I shut down we see a gaffer cow swim behind the boat which promptly inhaled the greenie we pitched out. Decided to just drift some livies and over the course of 35 minutes we pick up 2 more gaffers.
Florida Sportsman member: surferjs01 Surprisingly, we have been landing a lot of bulls lately. As well as tips, spinners, and even lost a large hammer a few nights ago. Sharks are averaging in the 6 foot range, yet we’ve been catching them up to 7.5 feet (bull). Bait of choice has been live/ freshly cut ray.
Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami Four more times I had the leader but the fish was still way too strong. Finally Neil’s rod broke at the base ferrule and it was all I could do retrieve the broken portion, which had slid down the leader to the fish.
Florida Sportsman member: LitiGATOR The mate gaffed the fish and a beautiful mutton hit the deck. I don’t know if Juozas had ever caught one before, but I believe it was his first on the Yankee. At 10-years old, on his first trip out here. That’s impressive. You couldn’t wipe the smile of his face.
Florida Sportsman member: redpro Bite wasn’t on fire but we managed a good meat trip. Passed a nice rip around 130 feet that made us wish we were trolling. Caught our limit of beeliners to 4 pounds and some nice triggers, one almost hitting 8 pounds!
Florida Sportsman member: T-shirt Bob She tipped a tad over 7 pounds on the boga grip. A MirrOlure Paul Brown floating by a dock piling was just too much for her to resist.
Florida Sportsman member : ownleme Found a great rip in 330 feet with a 3 degree temperature change 73 to 76 degrees, scattered weed line, and ripping current on the east side. First strike before 8am and kept coming. At one point I had just put one in the box, had one still pulling on another line, and tossed my alien head at its shadow to hook up with 20 plus pounder.
Florida Sportsman Member: huntentails We hit the water at the crack of noon. It wasn’t long before we had trout on almost every cast. Most were just underslot but we did manage to sort thru them for a nice bunch for dinner along with a nice pompano.
Florida Sportsman member: Captain Ross With our adrenaline back up, we repositioned our boat and made another drop. This time using a Black 18 inch Hogy Soft Bait, just over the nose, we threaded a small pink octopus style skirt and added a squirt of pro cure scent.
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: DeHeaven We ran to our first spot and within a few hours had boated five keepers. Kris had the winner with a seven pounder!
Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai Could’ve moved around to a few more spots to try and catch the rest of our Aj limit but out backs were already hurting and the big one was more than enough so decided to call it a early day. Only picture worth taking the camera out for was the Amberjack so that was the only picture taken all day.
Florida Sportsman member: beeuclothing Got a short break from school so ran down to Key West for a couple days of spearing. All footage shot freediving with Gopro hero 3, guns used were a Koah Euro 130 and Rob Allen 1300. Hope you like it and thanks for watching!
Florida Sportsman member: Bullshark We hit it hard the last few days. All in all we caught about 50 Snook and 1 Red. 3 of the Snook being slot fish.
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: Docked Wages After we were convinced that no cobia were in tow we broke off pursuit and stumbled across a school of redfish. It took me a while and finally I got one to eat! This being my personal best redfish on fly. He got so far into my backing I got really nervous about breaking the line or pulling the hook.
Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai With the heavy current and little bigger bait we were using a little heavier tackle and 6 ounce weights and they were barely holding bottom with the current. Ended up catching one red on the smallest rod and reel and smallest bait.
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: GDM Phil We got about 25 miles out and setup. It was non stop action all day! Between huge gags, that had to be thrown back and the red grouper. We managed 3 keepers grouper, a bunch of Grover’s, lanes and grunts.
Florida Sportsman Member: Releasegear We caught lots of short reds, a few keeper scamp and five good gags. the kids were reeling in a fish and about half way up it got blasted so I put out a mackerel we had sabiki’d up. Soon we had a shark on, a tiger shark.
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.
Florida Sportsman Member: Joe Snook While the weather has started to cool the fishing has really heated up! All month has been great but the end of the month just got even better when my tarpon showed back up.
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.
