What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman Member: pcola-reds The weather was 75 degrees, sunny and low wind. No better conditions for looking for the schooling redfish. I found a few schools cruising the bay. Large schools of hundreds were busting the water, chasing bait. I ended up catching two on topwater and one on a bucktail jig.
Florida Sportsman member: stingwray We made a short run and our first fishing stop was about three miles off beach. It was a grind to get our snapper, possibly due to moon phase. We had to run lots of numbers picking up a few fish here and there. The fish that were willing to bite were caught on dead and live 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?
After thorough online research on hunting-related injuries and fatalities nationwide over the last several years, I have devised five general categories of threats Sunshine State hunters should be aware of before trekking into our landscapes.
