What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: zay We found the slot reds schooled up pretty thick and ended up getting our limit and released about 7 more till we decided it was time to move to find the sheeps. As we were leaving,we yelled over to the boat next to us that they could get in the “spot” since we didn’t really see them hooking up.
Florida Sportsman member: out of the blue We got bit within 30 minutes of trolling and pulled the hook , for a bit I thought, bad sign then Michael got on his first northeast florida hoo, it got interesting because we missed 3 bites in a row. We just couldn’t figure out how they don’t get hooked at 15 knots with 2 mustad 10/0 hooks, then luck changed and we got the next 3 fish and headed for home.
