What's Biting Now


Tuna on the Edge

Florida Sportsman member: BillMe We did get a nice little open water yellowfin. It committed suicide on a cable rigged bonito lure.

Fishing for Cobia

Fishing for Cobia with Eels

Florida Sportsman Member: PanhandlePoon With the fish still down and out of sight, Jonathan dropped the eel over the side and the big one ate it, pulled drag for about five seconds and spit the hook. Jonathan free spooled his bait, and she ate a second time. 25 minutes later, she’s in the boat.
