What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: billy boy Took the grandsons to tolomato river for some shore fishing today, It was one of those spectacular days that does not happen very often. We caught 20 redfish, all slot or over in 2 hours on live finger mullet.
Florida Sportsman member: Snaphappy When we arrived we were the first boat on the scene and there were fish busting everywhere! We started casting poppers and it was game on immediately. For the next two and half hours it was wide open. We boated 10 fish on poppers and 6 on live bait.
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.
This imitation of a successful lure works just as well when tied as a fly. All veteran redfishermen are aware of how effective weedless spoons are on reds. Jon Cave knew this as well and wanted to transfer that success to flyfishing.
