East Central Inshore

Florida Sportsman Member: jmsnookman It was a little tight with four anglers on the boat, but the fish were chewing hard at all three spots we hit this morning. Between breakoffs and missed hook sets we lost as many as we landed; and we landed twelve trout (mostly overslot), two slot reds, snook, and missed a tarpon that would have completed a grand slam.


Ponce Offshore Fun

Florida Sportsman member: Koifarmer We then freelined some squid wrapped in chumdrop chum balls and it did not take long before we were hooked up . The fish were shy , 15 pound fluorocarbon and a small circle hook did the trick. We lost many many fish , but did manage to get 4 fish up to 9 pounds.


Jenna Helfferich, of Oak Hill, landed this Mosquito Lagoon redfish measuring 22 inches.

Lighten Up on the Lagoon

Paddle, pole or troll your way to world-class flats fishing on the Mosquito Lagoon before it’s too late. Heighten pressure from reckless boaters may trample a once-glorious seagrass estuary.
