Trout Fishing with the Kids

Florida Sportsman Member: Charlemagne The first spot we stayed at for about two hours, turned into a trout fishing competition between the two. I believe final count after two hours was Anna Maria with 45 and Paul with 31 (Just trout), she kicked his butt! There was tons of bait all around us and she caught a few macks mixed in with her trout as well.

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.

Live Bait Trolling (Bump Trolling)

Florida Sportsman’s Rick Ryals gives advice on how-to most effectively slow troll live baits while offshore fishing. It’s important to note that trolling live bait is not the same as trolling dead baits and lures. Live baits would quickly die if pulled at similar speeds. Not to mention, look very unnatural.
