New Personal Best

Florida Sportsman member: dtm I slowed the boat and looked back and this fish was jumping about 300yds back. Alex went to work pumping and winding. After a while the fish came alongside we got a good look and seen he was a nice one.

Mosquito Lagoon Fishing

Florida Sportsman Member: Capt Michael Savedow Summer has arrived to Mosquito Lagoon and the Edgewater backcountry, loads of mullet schools, summer water temps mean early morning surface activity. Live mullet and pigfish, topwater lures early morning, weedless rigged jerk baits and soft plastics, cut mullet and ladyfish are all good summer pattern baits and lures.

Fishing the Forgotten Chain: Osceola County Lakes

There’s room to explore on these largely unfished Osceola County lakes. It’s The Rodney Dangerfield Chain O’ Lakes. Right alongside the magnificently named and fun to say Tohopekaliga, it dares names like Coon, Lizzie, Center, Trout for God’s sake, and Alligator, like that’s a species you don’t often find in lakes.

Swamp Bass

The next morning in Jeff’s truck, he explained what lay ahead of us. Years ago, he discovered a trail into a hidden lake, a long way back through a swamp. He’d even hauled an aluminum boat out there. I asked him how many buddies used his boat. He told me he’d never seen another soul out there. I knew right then that this was going to be very special.
