What's Biting Now

Panhandle Offshore Bite

Florida Sportsman member: 85okhai We had some lunch and moved to a few more spots to pick up some beeliners. Plan was to be in pretty early but we still wanted some red groupers so we made the run in to fish state waters and were able to pull up a few red groupers and a couple of jacks.

Pompano Jigging with a Surprise

Florida Sportsman Member: 85okhai I have never caught a pompano on a jig and don’t even know when the last time I even caught a pompano was. Third or fourth cast in hooked into something nice and what I thought was a pompano ended up being a nice sheepshead.

The Florida Reef Fishing Menu

What kinds of fish might you find on the artificial reefs and wrecks around the Florida coast? That depends on season and latitude, to some extent. In midwinter, for instance, there’s a pretty big difference between the cold, nutrient-rich green water you’d encounter off Fernandina Beach, in far northeast Florida, and the warm, crystal clear Gulf Stream along the Florida Keys.

Un-Reel, Cane Pole Fishing

Besides that, sometimes it’s just fun to shed the gadgets and drift back to basics. Relax. Kick your shoes off. Set a spell and harken back to a simpler time.
