Florida Sportsman Member: jmsnookman We broke out the light tackle and pitched shrimp and Berkley gulp jigs tight to the mangroves. We had a blast catching and releasing black drum, trout, and redfish. Final tally was seven black drum, four slot trout, and one redfish; pretty good for two hours on the water.
Florida Sportsman member: tonytali The weather was perfect with nice temperatures, light winds and flat seas all day. We left Bluepoints at 7:30 and went to the edge of the gulfstream about 40 miles out at 350 ft. We picked up a 10 lb Mahi at about 320 ft and another pushing 20 lbs at about 145 ft. Worked into Pelican Flats and picked up four King Mackerel and a Bonito.
