Grinding it Out

Florida Sportsman Member: HammerheadTed Robbie went out with me for some topwater casting practice. Low outgoing to start and the incoming the rest of the morning. Robbie must of practiced ahead, because he hit a nice 36 inch snook at the first stop.

Crystal River Offshore

Florida Sportsman member: Killintime Cobia on the first cast of the day, it ate a large shrimp on a jig head. We caught grouper while trolling and mango’s on the reef, an awesome mixed bag.

Take the Scenic Route

Redfish and seatrout, solitude and scenery along the Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail. A 5-pound redfish towing a 45-pound kayak, burdened further by angler and gear, harnessed by a wisp of 10-pound-test thread. This surely mocks some obscure law of physics.

How-To

The Nervous Rex is similar in size to a magnum spook

Soft Plastic Topwaters

When bass are tight to cover or buried beneath it, getting a lure in front of them can be difficult. Plugs with treble hooks are suited for nibbling around edges of cover. If fish are active such an approach may work well. However, when bass hunker in places inaccessible to most lures, as they often do, a weedless offering is a must.
