What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: Bigchocolatelab We drifted passed the spot and reset, this time we threw two flat lines out with big live pogies and started to bottom bump again. The drift produced again only this time big amberjacks and red snappers showed themselves.
Florida Sportsman member: Boattronics he tide was wrong, but I figured it would be a good spot to let them warm up their casting skills. Lo and behold, a red decided to cooperate and bit Aidens bait and the fight was on! It was a solid fish, about 25 inches!
As a fishing guide, I spend a lot of time chasing jacks, whether that’s the big migrating crevalles on the beach or Intracoastal seawalls, permit on the reefs, inlets or wrecks or amberjacks on the artificial reefs, and of all the great gamefish I pursue, it’s the jack species that break the majority of rods and hearts.
