Skinny Water Sight Fishing

Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer The water is crystal clear in most spots I went to and I got to watch every one of em clobber the lure. No heroes but it’s awesome to see them eat whether they are 3 pounds or 30 pounds.

Port Canaveral Offshore

Florida Sportsman member: tonytaliv My son and I left Bluepoints at 7:30, seas were big and a little confused so it was slow going out but put lines in at 120 and within 10 minutes had a nice mahi.

Finding the Secret Creeks

I remember vividly the day I discovered the pleasure of fishing water with current. One day, on a whim, I took my boys—they were very young then—to the Santa Fe River north of Gainesville. We found gin-clear springs spaced perfectly for swim breaks. Eel grass waved in the current. Silver mullet darted, while golden shiners and snails slowly foraged on the algae growing on the blades of grass.
