What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman Member: Permitted Well turns out my redfish spot is kind of a hot spot for tarpon. So I took him back to the proving grounds to test his skills! Long story short he ended up catching his first tarpon and a couple more, also his biggest redfish to date.
Florida Sportsman member:Kapt. Hook There’s been a lot of african pompano around on the ledges. The cobia have been small lately but in good numbers. Snapper have moved out and left the bottom a cold ghost town. Not a lot of bait on the beaches or the buoy. Live pinfish and mullet are the best bet for live baits right now.
Plunging into the blue abyss for the first time is something that I will always remember. It was a completely different environment than I was used to spearfishing in. Looking through your mask, all you see is blue, in every direction.
“Fish on!” is the sound all offshore fishermen live for. You’ve trolled through miles of blue water and suddenly the rigger pin snaps, the rod bends, and the fight is on. The line is disappearing at an alarming rate, your sea monster is getting farther and farther away and every instinct in your body is screaming, “Stop the boat!”
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.
