What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai Could’ve moved around to a few more spots to try and catch the rest of our Aj limit but out backs were already hurting and the big one was more than enough so decided to call it a early day. Only picture worth taking the camera out for was the Amberjack so that was the only picture taken all day.
Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai With the heavy current and little bigger bait we were using a little heavier tackle and 6 ounce weights and they were barely holding bottom with the current. Ended up catching one red on the smallest rod and reel and smallest bait.
Update on where and when to go for silver king action in the Sunshine State. Where do you want to fish for tarpon this year? For Florida boat-owners and even many shore fishermen, the answer may be as simple as, how long do you want to wait for them to arrive?
But what happens when they aren’t showing themselves, and the usual spots don’t produce? In these situations, I set my trolling motor to cruise control and cover as much water as I can. Trolling for peacock bass is an excellent way to break the monotony of an unproductive day, and finally get on some fish.
