What's Biting Now

Fishing on the Edge

Florida Sportsman member: ShallowSalt Biggest score of the week was a 19.5 pound blackfin tuna caught on 20 pound spin gear while drifting. We began to see the big boys skying about a quarter mile behind the boat and eventually they worked their way close enough and took a drifting bait behind the boat.

August in Islamorada

Florida Sportsman Member: syxx I’ve been fishing mostly fresh mullet that we catching first thing in the morning still in the backcountry. In the bays the trout and snapper fishing has been best out closer to the gulf. Here the water is cooler and also alive with various baitfish such as ballyhoo, pilchards, pinfish, mullet, and more.

The Florida Reef Fishing Menu

What kinds of fish might you find on the artificial reefs and wrecks around the Florida coast? That depends on season and latitude, to some extent. In midwinter, for instance, there’s a pretty big difference between the cold, nutrient-rich green water you’d encounter off Fernandina Beach, in far northeast Florida, and the warm, crystal clear Gulf Stream along the Florida Keys.

How-To

Don’t Forget Your Sunglasses!

Heading out on the water without a quality pair of polarized sunglasses is just crazy talk! Polarized sunglasses not only help you see things in or above the water you couldn’t normally see, they protect your eyes (you only get one set!) from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
