What's Biting Now

Redfish Riot

Florida Sportsman Member: cbmdk86 These reds lost their minds when they saw that plug, I had one red of at least 45 inches come completely out of the water about a foot above the surface trying to dismantle my plug. It was epic action to say the least.

Record

Record Breaker Out of Ponce

Florida Sportsman member: InLimbo No further bite came after the first couple of hits. I said, “Maybe you should drop down a little more and she interrupted and said ‘no, no, no, she’s still there I know it,’ so I shut up and watched as we both concentrated on the rod tip then the rod tip just bent straight down…”

Lochloosa on My Mind

A story about passing time, cracker style. The beauty here is unique: 1.5 miles of black, deep creek water curving through swamplands. The water seems to flow at about the same pace as fingernail growth. Such is Cross Creek, capped by Lakes Lochloosa and Orange.

How-To

Tying a Realistic Crab Fly

Crabs can make up as much as 70 percent of a redfish’s diet in many areas along the Florida coast. Shallow grassflats and mangrove prop roots offer ideal habitat for a variety of crabs. Redfish and many other species love to root around for these delicacies.
