What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman Member: SpaceCoast Slayer I put on a gulp shrimp and dragged it excruciatingly slow across the bottom of this deep hole. Get thumped.. It’s a catfish. I thought to myself, “It’s gonna be one of THOSE days.” Whipped it out again and got another thump, but this one had some weight to it.
Florida Sportsman member: Tonytoli Headed out of Bluepoints Marina about 8:30 and with flat seas, ran 30 knots out to 220′. Trolled out to 700′. Ran back to 230′ and put back in headed west. Had a triple knock down at about 220′ and got two of three, but it was slow the rest of the day.
An east coast skiff guide divulges his secrets for locating and catching beach-run tarpon. Good numbers of tarpon are off the beaches in east/central Florida from late-May through October, as they are along Florida’s Gulf of Mexico shores.
Well, I hope you don’t work a fly rod like a whip, and some of the fly rods out there aren’t so long. They can be pretty short in fact. And short can be better, in some situations. I fish a variety of short rods, from 7-foot to 8-foot, 4 inches.
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.
