What's Biting Now

Crystal River

Crystal River Mixed Bag

Florida Sportsman Member: xmuskyguide High winds held tidewaters back and where there is usually four feet of water there was only one foot. We still caught reds, sea trout, sand trout, whiting, etc. The highlight was a very nice redfish.

Suwannee Grouper

Suwannee Grouper and More

Florida Sportsman member: Top Contender Finally, around 3:30-4:00, the bite fired off and it was grouper after grouper from 12 to 38 pounds. We stuck it out until sundown, then headed inshore to 200′ to snapper fish. Overall it was a slow bite, but lots of big fish and the box got filled completely.



Where to Fish for Tarpon

Update on where and when to go for silver king action in the Sunshine State. Where do you want to fish for tarpon this year? For Florida boat-owners and even many shore fishermen, the answer may be as simple as, how long do you want to wait for them to arrive?
