What's Biting Now


Good Bite Out Deep

Florida Sportsman member: INTREPID377 The most excitement we had was a when a school of juvenile sailfish began tearing up the spread. We had five lines hit in addition to both teasers. Finally, after running around in circles from rod to rod, we got one to stick on the Wide Range moldcraft in the shotgun position. He wasn’t very big, but he was a sailfish.


Lower Keys Bonefish

Florida Sportsman Member: torchkey The flats were active with sharks, barracuda, and bonefish. Had some good shots at bones and ended up with a couple of nice fish. Ended the day catching some trout for the dinner table. It was a good day to be on the water!



Fishing in Islamorada

That slim stretch of land halfway down the Keys is a stroke of geological genius for anglers. Only three miles to Islamorada’s south stands the reef, home of snapper and grouper. From there, the sea floor quickly drops off to the continental shelf.

Kayak Fish Bags

Soft coolers are being designed to fit inside, on the deck or in tank wells of a kayak. This has made it easy for paddle craft anglers to bring home even large catches. Improvements in insulation allow anglers to put in a day’s fishing and keep their catch fresh.
