What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman Member: snookerf150 I put in at bay view at 7am and ran out through the pass and headed north. Shut down and waited and within a few minutes there were pods of bait everywhere, one throw and I had bait for days.
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.
No bugs, no sweat, and an actual use for campfire besides cooking. Most outdoorsmen agree: Camping in Florida is best done in the winter time. Kayakers and other fishermen that use paddle craft are ideal candidates for camping trips.
Bent-wire spinnerbaits have been around since the 1950s, and today are available in countless sizes, colors and patterns. And, with the online availability (www.mudhole.com and other sites) of components like skirts, trailers and blades, you have the ability to come up with baits bass have never seen: flashy blades of all sizes, shapes and color. Unlimited skirt colors and patterns. Trailers. Unusual heads and eyes.
