What's Biting Now

Redtail Catfish

Rare Canal Redtail Catfish

Florida Sportsman Member: tarponfly49 This redtail catfish bottomed out a 50lb boga grip and taped well over our 36″ ruler! This was one heck of a fight on 15lb spinning gear, but my wife landed her after a 45 minute fight!

Everglades City: Calm Weather, Slow Bite

Florida Sportsman Member: sololobo30 I went offshore to get a late-day bite on the last part of the outgoing tide while the moon was rising. I caught some nice gag grouper and after sundown limited out on mangrove snapper.

Ten Thousand Islands Backcountry Kayaking

My quest for solitude and hidden fishing hot spots that didn’t involve a multi-day, overnight paddle or motor boat had started a few days earlier with Capt. Charles Wright, local ecotour operator and fishing guru.

How-To

Tying a Realistic Crab Fly

Crabs can make up as much as 70 percent of a redfish’s diet in many areas along the Florida coast. Shallow grassflats and mangrove prop roots offer ideal habitat for a variety of crabs. Redfish and many other species love to root around for these delicacies.
