What's Biting Now

Hot Weather, Hot Bite

Florida Sportsman member: Slug-O Water temp is around 88 degrees so keep your bait well pump going or you will have dead bait fast. One of my favorite things to look for on the banks of the ICW is popping shrimp. This is a dead give away there are fish in the area. Work the area well and you will be rewarded.

Northeast Bottom Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: Bigchocolatelab Broke the jetty’s to light NE winds and pretty seas. Plan for the day was to load up on white baits and fish deep. Found all the bait we wanted at the barge and pointed her east. Arrived in 160 feet and didn’t see much on bottom. We dropped lines anyways and found bite to be sluggish at first. Finally found the fish and managed to get on an incredible drift.

Matanzas Kayak Fishing

Sketchy low tides and a minefield of oyster shell? No problem for these Northeast Florida kayakers. Edward Abbey once said if you want to see the desert, get down on your knees and start crawling. Kayaking is the boating equivalent, with fish and other wildlife only inches away.

How-To

Bait struggling against a float rings the dinner bell for dolphin. The float itself may be an appetizer of sorts.

Fishing a Float Offshore

I’m convinced that pegging a foam cork about four feet above a live bait is one of the best tactics for mixed-bag drift-fishing on the summer ocean.
