What's Biting Now
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.
Winter is a great time to target trout, but the setting and methods may differ sharply around the state. According to our updated Florida climate data in the 2015 Fishing Planner, average low temps for the month of December differ greatly from one end of the Florida peninsula to the other.
This came to mind because, every year at ICAST, the international fishing tackle trade show, there are a few more mice, rats, birds—and turtles—among the many baitfish, crawfish and frog lures engineered to fool bass—or bass anglers. Actually, mice lures have been around forever—my Uncle Bob back in Ohio was fishing one in the 1950′s, though I don’t think he ever caught anything on it.
Consider these tackle shops in the East Central region the next time you plan a fishing trip.
Reel repair, local knowledge and a great tackle selection are some of the things that have made Wabasso Tackle Shop a longtime local favorite.
