What's Biting Now

Ponce Inlet Trolling

Ponce Inlet Trolling and Bottom Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: Mako224 We headed back to the ledge we started at and wanted to work some bottom. This paid off. Lots of vermillion, stud mangos, triggers, porgies and jacks.

Red and Black Drum

Full Moon Red and Black Drum

Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer As we approached we could hear the sweet sound of croaking drum underneath us. We both put out two rods each, one with a mullet chunk and one with a halved crab. Within five minutes my mullet rod doubled over and it was on.



Beach Fishing for Tarpon

An east coast skiff guide divulges his secrets for locating and catching beach-run tarpon. Good numbers of tarpon are off the beaches in east/central Florida from late-May through October, as they are along Florida’s Gulf of Mexico shores.



Fishing the Feeding Lane

On Florida’s clear spring runs and tannin-stained rivers alike, reading the water and knowing where a feeding lane is can be the difference between a nice day casting and a great day catching.
