Ten Thousand Islands Spring Bite

Florida Sportsman Member: Oldfloridaangler It is the most wonderful time of the year here in south west Florida. Warmer weather, less traffic, and the arrival of migrating tarpon and snook moving into passes is just the cherry to top off this sweet bowl of summer time in Naples.

Gulf Grouper Action on the Drift

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.

Fishing the Edges for Redfish

Haines made a long strip, resulting in a good hookset, then raised his rod as the fish powered back onto the oyster-laden mud flat. Playing his fish with the line in his hand, Haines brought the fish safely to the boat for release. We hoped for another shot, but the school of reds had simply disappeared.
